Fatherson-I Like Not Knowing

What? Why? Where? When?

Life is so unpredictable. Who knows what might happen next.

I just know that what happens next is something that you want to be pure, beautiful, fun, and special. If it isn’t, shouldn’t it be tossed aside?

Right now, I am watching Notre Dame bust the Kentucky basketball team’s mojo. It is something to behold. Don’t you just love a sweet upset? Well, probably only if you don’t have a lot of money riding on it. This could change in the time I post this, but somehow the excitement of an upset or just not knowing makes a great moment in time.


You can cross your fingers, hope to die…say a silent prayer…knock on wood…or even click your heals and say there is no place like home. Life can change on a dime. Love, life, and meaning can be moved like a crazy piece on a chess board.

Now, as I continue to write, Notre Dame was trumped and Kentucky won in the last seconds of the game. Maybe the idea of change and not knowing is really a farce and the most assured ideas of life, love, and sports really happen without upset. It is a set path that we all follow. Sometimes we hope for the crazy upset, mix up, change, but then ultimately it really never happens.

I like the wild experience of not knowing. Not knowing can be a shifting, mixing, wonky, moment and it can also be incredibly thrilling.

Notice me, I want you to notice me
Now I know I’m feeling this
Oh yes, I’m feeling this
Just do anything you want to
Know that I will stay
But I don’t own all the thoughts in your head
And if I did, I’d leave them for you to think instead

But I don’t know where we are going
Can hazard a guess


Listen and enjoy.
