2015 – solo piano – 3:50
Do you ever wish you had taken another path? Made a different important life decision? It is hard standing there in those moments when you can go right or left and you don’t know where each path will lead. What is worse though is living in the past, wishing rather than living. Yet I can empathize on how easy it is for us as humans to wish that we had taken another direction in life – I think of that often myself. Wouldn’t life be perfect if we could just go back in time and change what we wanted to change but keep all the good parts the same?
All these feelings are what inspired me to compose this piece.
Note, if you’re familiar with my other piano composition, Diverging Crossroads, and notice that the opening theme is similar to this piece, you would be correct in your observation. Believe it or not, I subconsciously plagiarized myself. They were composed over two months apart from each other with many other pieces composed in between, but somehow I came up with the same musical idea for both pieces – how strange – I guess this really resonates with me.
