I agree with matto for the most part...It;s the jouney. It's also the destination. It's a combination of a goal that has to resolve.After that, it's a return to the dream and back again... We are hopelessly human...Over the years, we learn that our goals are such a difficult stretch...It's a back and forth, a high tide and ebb. But it's mainly how you perceive those tides. One person's tear is another one's cradle.There might be a song in there somewhere...

To be honest, destinations scare me. Journeys excite me. I have no clue where I'm going, yet I have no trouble plotting a direction. A funny thing, really.

I often think about skiing. Skiing in your comfort zone doesn't make the best time, you have to push yourself to the edge to be competitive. Maybe that's why journeys feel slightly uncomfortable, at least the good rides..

Getting older doesn't help reaching a destination. Riding too often in a comfort zone. It's about finding the right challenges and try to get down quicker, just like in Taxi :D

Every time I write a line I love or create a chord progression that gives me goosebumps, I know that's what it's really about. It's wonderful to be recognized of course, to have a hit song or to win an award, but sometimes we forget how wonderful the journey is, the self fullfillment we get when we created something just for ourselves, not worrying about fowards, etc. I have a friend who cleans houses. She loves her job. You may ask how someone who cleans houses can love her job....not many people like to clean. She once said, "There is nothing like the feeling of cleaning a floor and it being all shiny....you know you did that....you believe you're the best floor shiner out there." Some may laugh at this, but it just goes to show you that attitude is everything....it's about loving what you do independent of any kudos from others. That doesn't mean we shouldn't strive to be better or work toward fowards....I just think we should enjoy the journey. So which is it for you, the journey or the destination....or both?
Great post! -- love this!

And yeah it's def about both because the destination is what fuels the journey... good stuff! :)
