Today at work I was listening to Mary Chapin Carpenter’s album Time*Sex*Love* when a song called “The Long Way Home” caught my attention. I have listened to that song many times before but today I “really heard it” for the first time and was blown away. Let’s listen and pay attention to Mary’s amazing lyrics……..
All of us would be a lot better off if we took Mary’s advice as offered up in the song
Or you could be the one who takes the long way home
Roll down your window, turn off your phone
See your life as a gift from the great unknown
And your task is to receive it
Tell your kid a story, hold your lover tight
Make a joyful noise, swim naked at night
Read a poem a day, call in well sometimes and
Laugh when they believe it
As great as the above lyric is, it is not what caught my attention. It was a single line that seemed to summarize the story of my life…..
Accidents and inspiration lead you to your destination
An absolutely amazing insight but maybe it’s just me. As always let me know what you think.
