The old man sat on his stool in the park, a blank expression on his face. He was playing his erhu, a Chinese two-stringed fiddle, and was hoping that passersby might stop to listen to his music and drop some money in his sack.
But passersby on this day were few and far between, and those who did stop for a moment quickly walked away because the music that he played was as expressionless as the empty look on his face.
