This week Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run” has been my accompaniment in long car rides to visit clients. I saw Springsteen in concert for the first time here in Atlanta several years back, and have since become a big fan. “Born to Run” is for all of us “tramps” (religious misfits) who tire of standing still in the spiritual life. We want to know that “love is real” and that “love is wild.” This song makes me come alive and reminds me of that motorcycle I’m saving up for with loose change.

Here is an older Bruce performing “Born to Run” with the same youthful spirit. I love you, Bruce!
