I've got the sun in my eyes


I’ve Only Just Begun

In a haste and rush to depart, I sat at the lounge in the airport doing the very last minutes task I didn’t forget – to download songs my sister had carefully selected to serenade my dad during his long hours in the hospital. The medium of delivery will be my lovely Ipod Nano Red.

Meanwhile, I plugged on my earphones to listen to the songs which waiting for boarding. First song that sung was by Carpenters – We’ve Only Just Begun. It was so beautiful! I almost forgot all these songs I once loved alot. The last 2 years living in Belgium, I was constantly surrounded by the loud boom of house music – which is really big and apparently started from Belgium. Not that I dislike those music, I love them too. They give sense of drive and boost of energy. But these oldies, its just different. It touched the core of my emotions. It serenade my being with love in the air and fluttering flowers and beauty everywhere.

I guess our emotions fluctuates all the time, so different type of music spices up our life in the different moments.

For meantime, I am enjoying this playlist. They bring back a lot of memories from childhood.  

We’ve only just begun to live,
White lace and promises
A kiss for luck and we’re on our way.
And yes, We’ve just begun.

Before the rising sun we fly,
So many roads to choose
We start our walking and learn to run.
And yes, We’ve just begun.

Sharing horizons that are new to us,
Watching the signs along the way,
Talking it over just the two of us,
Working together day to day

And when the evening comes we smile,
So much of life ahead
We’ll find a place where there’s room to grow,
And yes, We’ve just begun.

    Very true about your comment of house music! Since my departure, I have not even once put house music on my ipod, went to some good clubs in Buenos Aires though, but for the rest it feels good to listen to some ‘real’ music, listening to the words always brings memories in one way or the other.
