Tonight, I found myself jealous.  Jealous of a homeless man with a mental handicap.  Despite the fact that he wasn't "normal," he had an incredible musical talent.  Sitting on a park bench, with all his possessions at his feet, he played a cello.  Standing near a tunnel, his trumpet tunes made music with the city sounds.  Once he was student at Julliard, but now he lives his passion a little differently.  He does it on the street, since the way his brain works prevents him from a normal job.  He adores music so much that nothing can stop him from it.

I'd rather be homeless and doing what I was created to do, than have a safe warm home and not know what dreams to pursue.

A Bigger Ache

I'm feeling somber tonight.  

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows and the stars appear
There is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love

I know you haven't made your mind up yet
But I will never do you wrong
I've known it from the moment that we met
There's no doubt in my mind where you belong

I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue
I'd go crawling down the avenue
There ain't nothing that I wouldn't do 
To make you feel my love

There storms are raging on the rolling sea
Down on the highway of the grave
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
You ain't seen nothing like me yet

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true
No, there's nothing that I wouldn't do -
Go to the ends of the earth for you
To make you feel my love
To make you feel my love
