At one point we had about 50 people watching us on Sunday in union square.
I love the rush of performing for huge crowds like this on the street.
Literature from Mesopotamia: The Epic of Gilgamesh, Tablet 6
This Neo-Assyrian tablet preserves parts of the sixth tablet of the Epic of Gilgamesh. In this tablet, the goddess of love and war, Ishtar, attempts to seduce Gilgamesh who rejects her. When Ishtar’s father, the god Anu, sends the Bull of Heaven down to punish Gilgamesh for spurning her, Enkidu kills the creature. One of the most significant works of Akkadian literature, the story grapples with the themes of friendship, mortality, and the origins of man. (Source)
