This is from June 11, 2010.
I was walking around the streets of San Francisco on tour with In the Heights and came across a poet on the corner of Haight and Ashbury. He asked me a few questions. What do I do? What have I been thinking about? First couple things that came to my mind? And then he sat and wrote me this poem....
"Today I walk down these streets again and still
no where I've found is home and in my mind
I see snow as I brush it all away to keep moving
I see you in my mind and the journey just keeps
going as now I want you here and I'm not acting
but now I understand the art, picture a place
you need to go and teach your mind again to go
there so in the beauty of my art I travel again
and in the beauty of my heart I hold you there
and until I can call some place home I'll
just keep it in pictures and dream you there."

I especially love the end.
