“We Smile”

As you’ll see in a minute I am again referencing a song from way back in the early 1970’s sung by The Carpenters.
As soon as I saw this rainbow image while getting ready to process it in Lightroom, the words “We smile” came to my mind. When that happened, well the song “We’ve Only Just Begun”popped into my head. From there all the thoughts of new beginnings and the beauty of new beginnings came out.

Spring is a season of re-birth, new growth, and new beginnings. A time to embrace life, enjoy nature, nurture nature, and more importantly nurture ourselves both in body and spirit.

Here in the Blue Ridge Mountains spring is a wonderful time of year, and being able to see a rainbow after a big spring storm gives the sense of newness, fresh start, and pure beauty.

Read the lyrics to the song below the image. If you remember them from the 1970’s then feel free to rejoice!! 🙂 If they’re new to you, then think about them, and enjoy them with the beauty of this image!! 🙂

“We’ve Only Just Begun” by The Carpenters

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

Before the risin’ sun, we fly
So many roads to choose
We’ll start out walkin’ and learn to run
And yes, we’ve just begun

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

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

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

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

  1. Love that warm light on that gently sloping ridge. Another iconic song – they just don’t make songs like that any more.
