As my first official post (eek!), I thought I’d share the inspiration to the name I’ve chosen for the blog. ‘Wings are Wide’ are lyrics from the amazingly wonderful Canadian artist Feist’s ‘I Feel it All’.
I have loved Feist ever since I was introduced to her album ‘Let it Die’ by my French housemate Lucile when I lived in Brussels and I have to say, this song (on the follow up album to Let it Die, ‘The Reminder’) is one of my favourites. The lyrics really resonate with me, especially because I’m on the brink of new adventures and beginnings, but also because it reminds me of when a bird needs to fly away quickly, it spreads its wings wide open and flies. A constant reminder of inner strength and resilience.
Fly away to what you want to make
I feel it all, I feel it all
I feel it all I feel it all
The wings are wide, the wings are wide
Wild card inside, wild card inside…”
