Could have been

Listen to - Could have been

We don’t choose our life.  It chooses us.  I’ve been listening to a lot of new artists lately, one of which has been Johnny Flynn (British folk singer and contemporary of Laura Marling and Mumford and Sons).  I got caught in a YouTube death trap watching video after video of this guy and I thought, hey, I could have done this.  This could have been me.  We all think this way sometimes, right?  We look at our seemingly mundane lives and wonder what could have been.  What if we had chosen a different career path or followed our adolescent dream of being whatever we thought we wanted to be.  I could have sold everything and followed my dreams, but where would that have led me?  “But I guess that wasn’t in the cards for me.  No it wasn’t in the stars for me.  I’m wrapped up pretty in my suit and tie, tucked all cozy and nice in my suburban life.”  I’m a bit deterministic these days.  I’m living the life that was designed for me.   I could have been… but then it wouldn’t be me.  I wouldn’t have these songs to write and stories to tell.  Thanks for listening whoever you are and wherever you are.  -Nathan
