The Last Time I Saw Richard began to play. As Joni sang, "All romantics meet the same fate someday," I remembered the endless discussions Sally and I had once had about song lyrics. Now, at forty, I was engaged again in just that sort of rambling conversation, babbling and smoking pot and listening to music in a room reminiscent of my old room. A part of me remained that same silly, over-serious girl.
Joni is also mentioned on page 104.
