On Choice

“When you have to make a choice and don’t make it, that is in of itself a choice”

William James

That quote instantly reminded me of:

“You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice
If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice
You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill
I will choose a path that’s clear, I will choose freewill”
Neil Peart, from Freewill

It is the chorus of this song:

About Ray V.

Living between Aiken & Nashville, TN, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Loving that William James quote Ray! Used to tell our kids that all the time. (only our words didn’t sound quite so profound!)

    That’s why there’s always three choices in life…not two…and I realize I know Neil Peart under another name…
