During our trip to the east coast, Kevin and I came across a poem at the National Portrait Gallery in DC attached to the back of a portrait of Amelia Earheart. It reads:
“I have painted you/ Against the reaches of the sky/ We sail together, you and I/ Great dreams come true/ Beyond the head winds of fate... So I have painted you/ In your rich brief moment to find/ A loving niche of all of human kind"
Both of us liked the poem the moment we read it, and jotted it down for future reference. I felt it was appropriate to include in the video because it matched the spirit that I wanted to go for. It captures how I feel about my friends, the new ones I've met and the old ones I try to keep in touch with.
I wish I could include all the awkward faux paus that happened on the trip: the time I fell on a foreign woman on the subway by accident, the hipster guy who yelled at me at Strand for taking a photo of him, the moment when I accidentally farted at a Kennedy Center Performance, you know, the good stuff. Great Trip though.
