Ian Anderson: Might Have Beens [youtu.be]

We all must wonder, now and then, if things had turned out - well - just plain different.
Chance path taken, page unturned or brief encounter, blossomed, splintered.
Might you have been the man of courage, brave upon life's battlefield,
Captain Commerce, high-flown banker, hedonistic, down-at-heel?
A Puritan of moral fibre, voice raised in praise magnificent?
Or rested in assured repose, knowing your lot in quiet content?
What-ifs, Maybes and Might-have-beens fly, soft petals on a breeze.
What-ifs, Maybes and Might-have-beens. Why-nots, Perhaps and Wait-and-sees.

Hmmmm, honestly not a road of thought that I go down very often... one can not change the past no matter how much one thinks about it so it seems a waste of energy... best to dream of the future! And your photo works equally well for that! 8^)
