it was a homeless man in hollywood who got me thinking.
we’d just flown in from san francisco; we’d been flying
and driving for weeks. this day i saw a homeless man on
the street in hollywood. i felt the usual mix of sorrow for him,
and anger at a society that makes a man live like this.
later on i thought about it more, he affected me differently.
he really looked together, really organised. he was a survivor.

i’m sure his life is really tough, but i felt a deep sense of
respect for him, much more than pity. then i asked myself,
why did i react this way. it struck me, that here in this crazy
world, there was a man, who drives no car, who flies no plane,
who heats no home; in a time of global warming his co2
emissions are pretty much zero. this homeless man in
hollywood is a model urban citizen.

i on the other hand, i live this life of good intentions,
i travel the world, i try to be aware of the earth, i sing my songs,
i look and hope for change. but out on the road, i fly everyday,
i drive everyday, i heat my home, and burn up so much fuel
that if everyone lived like me, we’d need about 4 planets
just to keep it all going…………………….. sh-t!

funny how a homeless man in hollywood got me thinking….
men like him just walk the walk, and men like me………..
well, we talk a good talk….

it was a homeless man in hollywood…
homeless…
