DREAMING FOR TOMORROW
Where are you going?
I see you walking in the distance
In the open air, no walls around you
What are you thinking?
You move your feet in a tiny dance
A smile appears. There is no one to stop you
Stretch your arms, there is nothing to feel
but the wind through your fingers
and the sun on your skin
It’s been a long time since life felt so real
Where are you running?
so fast and so free
You fall to the ground and look to sky
Watch the birds and the clouds moving lazily
You understand now what it feels like to fly

For those not familiar with my music, it is all improvised. If there is an error it becomes part of the piece. I can’t play it again the same exact way. I recorded this as I was writing Jamie’s book. As my damaged arm becomes functional I can continue recording and editing the book.
When I woke this morning I had a vision of Jamie in the distance and these words came to mind. I thought how it must be to never be able to stretch out your arms and not touch something. His world is so small. No ability to run with abandon. We crave what we can’t have
