Sometimes a stray thought sits with me enough to spin a song around it. This song is one of my little meditations. People talk a lot about living in the moment, about being present in the now. That's a good thing to do, but I think maybe it gets too close to vilifying thinking about the way things were, or the way things could be. I think it's okay to reflect on the past or the future as long as you're not stuck there. It's good to ponder these things so you can understand yourself the way you are. That's the whole thought — brief like this song.


All the ways it can go
It ain't a waste of time
To think on the stories of your life
All the ways that it's been

All the ways we are
There's nothing wrong
With being part of a greater thought
Of the ways we could be


released August 9, 2021
