Following your Dreams

The poem that poet Lynn Gentry wrote for me at last night's Art Institute of California - SF United Streets of Fashion event.

I went blindly into a storm as everywhere
the houses were falling apart so looked in the wilderness
With no more evidence than wonder and no more leads
than the feet in front of me as she saw me and looked
on saying nothing but telling me everything
as I knew from first sight that I had seen what I needed to
see as returning home the sight bloomed in me to
burst out again and give birth to the dreams I see
at night I don't know where to go to follow my dreams
but I can write

Lynn Gentry
