How the heck is Joni? ??? Does anyone know? Here are Joni, Graham, David an me in the studio (Wally Heider's) in Los Angeles with CS&N in 1969--Love love love her, since the first time I heard her sing "Both Sides Now" to me, on the phone, in the middle of the night, when Al Kooper called me at three in the morning and put her on the phone- Al had followed her home from a "Blood Sweat and Tears" show in the city- because she said she wrote songs and she was goood looking (!) and how could he lose? Why I woke up at 3 in the morning, from a sound sleep (?) when I am quite sure I must have been drunk, is a miracle that only fate can account for. I love Joni and her songs, and have been passionate about them since that night. A new Judy sings Joni CD? I think so-that is certainly in the future --mine and yours, I hope- but what is going on with her? I pray all is good news and will sing "That Song About the Midway" tomorrow night in Manchester, UK"

...and a few hours later, she posted this:

"I have just heard from a close mutual friend that Joni is walking, talking, painting some, doing much rehab every day, and making good progress -- I have another friend who went through something similar - it does take a long time, three years for my friend, who has really totally recovered professionally and personally. I will try my best to see our songbird when I am in LA in the coming weeks."
