Monday Morning Coffee – We’ve Only Just Begun

Sharing Horizons that are new to us . . .

I was thinking about all of the change happening in Nashville after hearing SO many people buzzing about it.

It seems that a BIG, NEW project starts popping out of the ground every day . . . or we hear about a huge imminent change, like:

Hillsboro High land sale: New school, big profit

The locals seem to be conflicted and are all asking questions:

  • We LOVE being the “It” City, but are we losing Nashville’s hometown feel and character?
  • Do ALL of the old landmark building have to be torn down to make way for growth?
  • What happens when the road system fails and becomes terminal gridlock?
  • Is the momentum such that we will become over-developed?
  • What if the economy suddenly takes a wild swing for the worst?

If you talk to the developers, you’ll probably hear something like:

“We’ve only just begun!”

For sure, new residential development is starting to happen in areas we could never have fathomed in our wildest dreams . . . at price points that are mind-boggling.

The downtown core including the Gulch and beyond is sure to fill up with tall buildings in the next 3-5 years.

We’re going to have some pretty serious growing pains along the way.

I got all teary-eyed and sentimental as I listened to the Carpenters ‘splain things in their song.

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
