This is the message board in Collinsville CT. I walk this block, and every time I go by, I stop to be reassured that everybody is indeed looking for the same thing. And I thank Kate Wolf for singing this truth so beautifully.IMG_4532  (I couldn’t find Kate Wolf singing this one, but do go to the official website for information on what her son and daughter have done to help her fans keep her music in our heads and hearts. See


Kate Wolf’s song–Everybody’s Looking for the Same Thing–teaches us that “outside a country store there’s a board on the wall that’s filled with cards of every size. And what the folks are looking for is written there to see. Reading it, it comes as no surprise that everybody’s looking for the same thing. The same thing, it’s plain to see. It’s an old Chevy, a bass player, a country house on three acres, 3 bedrooms absolutely free. There’s someone going to Boston with a guitar and a dog, and a lady with a goat to give away. There’s 10 free kittens, a square dance on Sunday, and Cindy please get in touch with Ray. Know your future, it’s in the stars–15 dollars or fix my car, you can call mornings or evenings until 9. Do you want to lose weight, meditate? Herbal remedies you can take. And massages given at your house or mine. So if you’re needing something and you don’t know where to start, just make yourself a card that says it all. Use the words that say it best, include a number and address. And pin it up with the others on the wall.”
