The last time I saw Joni

Naxos, Greece 

Some Joni Mitchell songs are just embedded in my heart. I plan to listen to Blue over and over until I die and never get tired of it. There's a whole generation of us.

But, she says a lot of mean things in the new bio "Reckless Daughter."

I have this wish for Joni:

You really haven't changed.
It's just that now you're romanticising some pain that in your head
You've got tombs in your eyes, but the songs you punched are dreaming

Listen, they sing of love so sweet.

-- from "The Last Time I Saw Richard"
