Happenstance?the never can be? Main Entry: hap·pen·stance; Etymology: happen + circumstance: A circumstance especially that is due to chance. - Merriam Webster Dictionary I apologize for insisting on writing my own bio, but I just can not be satisfied with another?s account of my psyche when even I don?t understand it myself. Welcome to the world of this indecisive control freak hopeless romantic? Happenstance, produced by John Alagia (John Mayer, Dave Matthews etc.), is a collection of songs inspired by my obsessions, often love related, but not always. It?s about the battle between chance circumstances and the belief that everything happens for a reason. The title and the back cover addition of ?the never can be? suggest that I?m not really endorsing chance, but, in fact insisting that there must be a reason for repeated broken hearts ? perhaps a promise of a better situation, learning experience, the greater love etc. It?s a circular argument? and it?s merely a matter of ?happenstance? that the title is what it is anyway. Without the hopefulness of reason, how could anyone weather the highs and lows of relationships and this delightful junk called love. Look to the second album for a more cynical approach in which it all goes to hell and nothing makes sense and chance is winning?
