Letting Go

Waunakee Wishing Tree

Wishing Tree – Waunakee

A couple of weeks ago, I stopped at the Waunakee Wishing Tree. (It has its own Facebook page, and the posts are better than most.)  I hung a wish on the tree.  It was a wish to stop doing something I have persisted in doing.

I truly do want to let go of that.  Yet I hold on.  AA has its aphorisms:  Let go and let God, Let go or be dragged (I like this one.).  I’ve felt like I asked the tree to handle it, but I won’t let go of it to let the tree handle it.  Remember Dorothy and the apple trees in the Wizard of Oz?
