Do you remember a time when you felt internally disoriented and fragmented? Your desires conflicted with responsibilities? Your emotions were continually swirling 360 degrees? Confusion was temporarily punctuated with lifesaving clarity? Perhaps you couldn’t define what it was you were feeling because no words could describe the confusion you were experiencing. Perhaps you felt like the world was tugging at you from various directions and you were paralyzed by the indecisiveness of where to turn next.

You may have recalled the sense of unease but couldn’t quite comprehend what it yet signified. Your internal compass followed no discernible north or south and at times you felt emotionally lost at sea. How do you know what the next move will be if you can’t identify where you currently stand? You continuously wonder why the unknown feels so jarring and how you can quell the inner uncertainty. You start to think about what it means to exist if our titles and roles are stripped away exposing what it is we want to be for ourselves. What does that look like? You start to question the meaning of life and your purpose within this universe. Can our purpose be greater than the act of doing and how does just being and existing fit into the schema of life?

This is what Fractionated represents.

Fractionated, the first single on my album Final Beginning, has an eclectic somewhat haunting and sightly jarring yet lush melody. It wasn’t written on purpose as such but the emotions I was feeling and wanting to express gave birth to the formation of a song that aurally captured those inner battles as described above. Fractionated descended from a period of heightened internal struggle initiated by a personal challenge which was quieted by the final realization that the start of the end must begin with taking a chance. We never know what the end holds but we can’t be afraid of it.
