I think that this is the first blog entry I’ve written in direct response to a discussion going on in the Forums section of this site. 🙂 I almost wrote it out as a reply to the individual posters, but then decided that it needed to be shared in Song of the Trees.
So, what theme is so important that I felt inspired to turn it into a blog entry? Well, it’s hard to put a finger on what inspires me to write one of these entries, or "Songs" as I call them. But it’s always something that I’m passionate about, and something that I feel may have relevance for other people as well. In this case, it has to do with the contrast between my empowering vision for a better society and some of the more mournful and disempowering moments of my blog and my life in general.
