I woke up this morning to the sound of a saxophone playing in the distance and remembered that today is the day Oprah is having auditions at her studio for a new show called The Big Give, a pay it forward challenge. This is what I see when I look off my balcony, I live next to Harpo studios. There is a man playing some mellow jazz tunes and someone else handing out T-shirts.
Yesterday a crew from Harpo studios come over to look off my balcony to see if they wanted to have a camera man shooting from there. But they decided to go with someone on the other corner of our building.
The street behind the building has been closed for two days to allow for lots of people.
It is cold outside too. It is snowing and the wind is blowing 30-40 mph gusts. You know these people are serious, to stand outside all day in this.
Oprah has even arranged for a temporary coffee stand in the lot across the street.
