My boss, Vince, saw it first.
“Hey! There goes a piece of paper blowing around! Wonder if it belongs to somebody?”
I turned to look, the white catching my eye, a full 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper that came to rest on the pavement outside the office.
“I’ll go grab it!”
My curiosity was piqued. Was it anything important?
I got to it before another autumn sweep of wind picked it up again. It was blank. Not one word written upon it.
I reached down and carefully picked it up, nodded, smiled, and brought it into the office, where I placed it on my desk. Took a quick photo with my phone.
Turns out that blank sheet of paper belongs to me. A gift with amazing possibilities- to boldly take me to places no woman has gone before…
The countdown begins…3…2…1
I hope you find your own blank sheet of paper today.
Lyrics from the song “Unwritten”
“I am unwritten, can’t read my mind, I’m undefined
I’m just beginning, the pen’s in my hand, ending unplanned
Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten”
