05/11/19 - NNHS Newsletter - Anticipation

“But if we learn to think of it as anticipation, as learning,
as growing, if we think of the time we spend waiting
for the big things of life as an opportunity instead
of a passing of time, what wonderful horizons open out!

Anna Neagle
(20 Oct 1904 - 03 June 1986)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Today's theme is in honor of all of y'all who are anticipating something exciting in your lives - and I should think that would include us all.

BONUS #1 - Anticipation - Carly Simon, 1972

BONUS #2 - Anticipation - Carly Simon, sometime later


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anticipation_%28song%29:  

"Anticipation" is a song by Carly Simon. It was the most famous track from her 1971 album of the same name, reaching #13 on the U.S. pop charts. The song relates Simon's state of mind as she waits to go on a date with Cat Stevens.[1].

... The song was notably used in commercials for Heinz Ketchup through the late 1970s into the 1980s.

Anticipation

Written and recorded by Carly Simon (b. 25 June 1945), 1971
 

We can never know about the days to come
But we think about them anyway, yay
And I wonder if I'm really with you now
Or just chasin' after some finer day

Anticipation, anticipation
Is makin' me late
Is keepin' me waitin'

And I tell you how easy it feels to be with you
And how right your arms feel around me
But I, I rehearsed those lines just late last night
When I was thinkin' about how right tonight might be

Anticipation, anticipation
Is makin' me late
Is keepin' me waitin'

And tomorrow we might not be together
I'm no prophet and I don't know nature's ways
So I'll try and see into your eyes right now
And stay right here 'cause these are the good old days

(These are the good old days)
And stay right here 'cause these are the good old days
(These are the good old days)
(These are the good old days)
(These are the good old days)
(These are.....the good old days)
