If I could really choose my talent, rather than let DNA and birth take care of it, I think I would choose to really excel at music--composition and even performance. Why? Because as good as writing can be to convey thought and vision and mood, throw in music, and it blows it open in a whole fundamental way. It's a language that hard to beat.
Maybe that's why over the years I've come across songs that feel like they could be my epitaph (at that moment, of course). The fascinating thing is how they've changed a bit over the years. But this song is one that has stuck with me for a while. Maybe I'll settle on it! (Not that I'm looking to need it any time soon.) It's Dante's Prayer by Loreena McKennitt.
Do you have musical epitaph?
Or feel free to make it an anthem! Let's hear what you've got!
