Last night I saw you in my dream
There's nothing like walking down Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica on a clear winter day listening to the guitarist playing "Sleepwalk". It made me feel blue but so good at the same time. I was there for work. The lone musician, an old man, playing his guitar on the sidewalk. How much music meant to me, how much this song meant to me, and how little it mattered to a lot of the people around. I felt what he felt as he played that song. Almost brought tears to my eyes. Loved this song as a very little kid and is one of my all time favorites. It's winter and the blues have surely caught up with me.
