Joni came out and I fell in love.... Never spoke to my date and then made her stay for the second set. To this day, one of my most memorable concerts. Joni is one of very very few artists whose lyrics I actually listen to for content. Have to say... my favorite Joni album is without doubt Hejira.

Joni always seemed to touch those emotions all young women felt. She came out of her "dressing room" to say hi to folks. Such wonderful memories.

Joni Mitchell was a cool stream and a warm blanket that has run through my life for 45 years... always there when I needed her to calm me down, remind me of ocean, bring me to a place that felt "beautiful".
