Issue 21: Could It Be by Mackintosh Braun
Sometimes my connection to what I consider an inspired single comes from how the song fits with what I'm feeling when I first discover it. This couldn't be more true than with Mackintosh Braun's relatively recent track, Could It Be off of their latest album Where We Are.
It seems this year has been a mix of trying to balance my desire to grow and feel challenged with the reality that last year I managed to achieve a lot of the things I had been working towards since film school. In short I've spent a lot of time brainstorming and trying to figure out what I want to do next. The process sometimes adds more stress than anything, and then I'm left wondering why I'm purposefully frustrating myself.
The chorus of Could It Be echoes my sentiments perfectly - "could it be enough to only stay right here, could it be enough never needing more"? The truth is that it's probably not, but that doesn't mean that I can't appreciate where I'm at for the time being. It's the great dilemma we all face, to continue seeking new adventures or to be satisfied with the ones we've already had. This is a great single to get lost in.
