My family recently sold the land that has been the hub for our family on my dad's side for many decades. I spent some of my best growing up years at "the Woods" as we call it. I've been working through it by writing songs. Some sad, some a bit angry, some hopeful and hopefully (eventually) moving towards truth and wisdom. The trees are one of the things I'm saying goodbye to:
"Tune my heart, God, to how to let go
It's that start-stop dance
that we all know we'll get to know
Soon or late
break the news
to my family..."
