From the recording E.Y.G
This song comes from some wisdom shared to me by a friend in Puerto Rico who showed me around some sacred spots on the island. All the place he took us to looked and felt absolutely magical. I found my self saying the phrase "this place is amazing" a lot. Each time I said it, my friend would look towards me with a pretty serious gaze and say "everywhere you go, there you are". The chorus in this song comes from the message I took out of my friends words on an island that was miles away from home. It was on that trip that I began to realize that we carry our "baggage" with us on and off vacation. As Bob Marley said, "you can't run away from your self". The picture for this single's artwork is me on the beach in Ensenada, Mexico sometime in the early 80's. When I see this picture it reminds me of my true nature. One love.
