So, we blossom, in sometimes funny-shaped blooms and endure through unpredictable weather toward our goals. What moved me so much about the two Civil Wars videos I posted (aside from the amazing music) is the discussion with high school students about the winding path that, after ten or more years in the music industry, led them to each other and to the amazing ride they are now on. The second video talks about the inspirations for their lyrics. For me, hearing their journey made me feel better about my own winding journey. I hope wherever you are on the path, you find something inspiring about them too.
