This is a long over-due tribute. Joni Mitchell celebrated her 65th birthday on November 7. Happy birthday to her; one of my arty-rock heroes.

And many more, Ms. Mitchell and thank you for the songs and paintings.

  3. I just recently finally got all her albums (which I still have) on CD. Her voice touches a person's soul.

  5. My favorite is still 'Dreamland'.

    I met her in Vancouver.

  6. I'm a huge fan of Joni. I was a little kid when Help Me was a hit on the radio and I loved it how quirky it sounded. No one else sounded like that at that time. When I was a teen, Hejira came out and that's when she won me over for life. I went backwards and bought
    all the earlier albums. Like Dianne, I now have everything on CDs. Plus I have a few bootleg tapes and CDs that people have given me over the years. She is an amazing talent.

    Susan - what were your impressions of Joni when you met her? I'm so celebrity shy that I would not have been able to approach her. I've heard she is very intimate, if she does lock eyes with you. And I love Dreamland

    "Black babies covered in baking flour, the cook's got a carnival song, I'm gonna lay down someplace shady with dreamland coming on..."

    Brilliant.

  7. The odd thing about meeting her was that she approached my then 4 year old son and me as we walked along a quiet residential street in Vancouver toward a busier shopping district. She must have parked her car and caught up with us because she was eager to talk with Benj. It was much like spending a little time with any good friend.
