Subject: RE: BS: Songs of hope and healing
I've always liked John Gorka's "Branching Out" - the one that goes "When I grow up I'm gonna be a tree . . ." I don't know why, but that song has actually brought tears to my eyes. The words don't really say anything profound, but, for me at least, there's some powerful symbolism in it.
