Since I’m no longer in Denmark, “adventures in denmawrk” no longer seemed like a fitting title for my blog. I struggled to think of a new one (especially since all my fellow bloggers took all the good Bryn Mawr puns) before finally settling on “On the Loose”, name for my favorite camp song. It reminds me of all the travels I have had over this past year and serves as a constant reminder for myself to treat every new day as an adventure and chance to see the beauty of the world around us. I would like to share the lyrics with all of you:
On the loose to climb a mountain, On the loose where I am free,
On the loose to live my life the way I think my life should be.
For I only have a moment, and a whole world yet to see.
I’ll be looking for tomorrow on the loose.
Have you ever seen the sunrise turn the sky completely red?
Have you slept beneath the moon and stars, a pine bough for your bed?
Have you sat and talked with friends, though a word was never said?
Then you’re just like me and you’ve been on the loose.
There’s a trail that I’ll be hiking just to see where it might go,
Many places yet to visit, many people yet to know.
But in following my dreams, I will live and I will grow,
In a world that’s waiting out there on the loose.
So in search of love and laughter, I am traveling across this land.
Never sure of where I’m going, for I haven’t any plans.
Anytime when you are ready, come and join me take my ha
nd. And together we’ll share life out on the loose.
As I sit and watch the sunset and the daylight slowly fades,
I am thinking of tomorrow, and the friendships I have made.
I will treasure them for always, and I hope that you will too.
And forever we’ll share life out on the loose.
