Such was what happened to me the other day when I heard the Natasha Bedingfield song "Unwritten". Even though it had been out for many many years and came out before her other song I always liked, "Pocketful of Sunshine", I do not think I had ever heard it before last week.
It spoke to me about my coming retirement and all the thinking I have been doing about it lately:
"Reaching for something in the distanceI especially like the lines:
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten"
The rest is still unwritten..."
Full lyrics here.
