Help! I am stuck and need some song & story suggestions-posted by MyLinda Butterworth

The Scarlet 'C' is the working name of my presentation for my finest hour (advanced storytelling). My concept is to look at things that begin with the letter 'C' that will take me through my journey of cancer. Obviously my cancer story is at the core of my program, but cancer goes beyond finding out you have it and heading for the cure. It looks at caregiving, caring, comfort, companionship, comedy, community... that is the journey I am going to take you on. I really don't want this program to be too heavy.

I have one folktale (Rapunzel to deal with a desire for children and hair loss), I would like to have another. I have one poem (The Road Not Taken), what I want is a song - folksong - ballad that would fit into the soup. I am confident with my singing abilities as long as the song isn't too high, but this journey feels like it needs a song. Can anyone suggest a song that might fit into my program. I am also looking for suggestions for additional stories.

Thanks in advance for your help - StoryHugs, MyLinda

And 'Changes' by Phil Ochs. Perfect.

How about CC Rider? The acoustic Mississippi John Hurt version, not the punked-out Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels take. You might also consider the Jimi Hendrix composition 'Castles Made of Sand', which is made up of little vignettes with the bittersweet quality of dreams and dashed expectations
