Miss Joni Mitchell – the first of the Ladies of the Canyon, sings about love and vulnerability.
For camparigirl … a more recent lady of the canyon – who also lives life on her own terms and who is also a romantic feminist. And for sofagirl’s brother Chris (a great big softy) – who sent her this song yesterday. With a note that said: “The Work of Genius”.
“I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From WIN and LOSE and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all” Joni Mitchell
From her album “Clouds” – Sparse and beautiful in 1970, re-imagined, jazzy and still true in 2000, more poignant than ever today.
