I have never understood why people fear starting things: new jobs, living in new places, beginning new relationships etc. I have always enjoyed those pleasurable things I am used to but I have also looked forward in pleasurable anticipation to doing things I haven’t done before, going places I’ve not been, seeing things I’ve not seen and talking to new acquaintances and making new friends.
In fact, I would have to say that the most pleasurable activity of mine since teenage years was entering a new relationship with a woman, I had feelings for. Not knowing what tomorrow will bring can be adventurous and as amorous as fate has in store. It is today, however, that holds the greatest pleasure; the moment experienced afresh that carries the kernel of life’s essence. Tomorrow is never feared when today is loved.
Why I love this song is because of the beautiful lyrics that tell us that it is when we first fall in love that is when we first start to live. If you ever needed a description of a perfect loving relationship, go no farther than the verses of this song that include such memorable lines as:
‘Sharing horizons that are new to us,
Watching the signs along the way,
Talking it over, just the two of us,
Working together day by day.
We’ve only just begun…………’
