Day 26 – A song that you listen to when you’re happy

I absolutely love the new Twining's Tea advert with its beautiful animation and the soundtrack of Wherever You Will Go by Charlene Soraia. I don't know about something I listen to when I'm happy, but the song makes me feel happy and uplifted.

There are so many places I could go to get inspiration from this song. I could do a freewrite based on a picture from the advert; the title of the song 'wherever you will go' reminds me of the passage from Ruth in the Bible where she swears to stay with her mother-in-law wherever she goes*, so perhaps I could rewrite that in a different setting; I could use a cup of tea as the prompt; write something about being happy; the list just goes on and on.

* But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the LORD deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.”
When Naomi realized that Ruth was determined to go with her, she stopped urging her.
(Ruth 1:16-18, New International Version)
