You ever have those moments where you feel like you can look at yourself from a removed vantage point? I had one of those moments not too long ago. I was sitting in my office at work, and, all of a sudden and out of absolutely nowhere, I was able to look behind me (in my mind, of course) and see the path I’d walked on to get to where I was in that exact moment – doing what I was doing, wearing what I was wearing, all of it. It was the strangest and most wonderful feeling. I could see the places I had made an active decision, the places where an outside force had cleared a few feet of the path ahead, the places where I’d stumbled and made a slight course correction. There were It made my life today seem both inevitable and accidental at the same time, in that everyone is a product of their own decisions but no one exists in a vacuum. It was a beautiful moment.
That is what this song reminds me of.
