Music for Sunday (On Wednesday, My Birthday) - Joni Mitchell - 4th of July - Night Ride Home
To me, Joni Mitchell is like Edith Piaf, Billie Holiday and Charles Mingus all in one person. Just as my birthday (July 1), the 4th of July and early summer are all woven together as parts of who I am. I love summer, the fireworks, the man beside me and all the music this elegant Canadian songbird, turned California girl, has given us over the decades.
I'm busy (class started on Monday and ends next Thursday but runs from 2:30 to 7:45: jam-packed) and a bit stressed but none the worse for wear, as they say. 83% happy, healthy and trying to make the most of life. If you've got that, there is not a whole to complain about. Well...unless the hormones are taking their toll on the emotions, as they are wont to do! When I'm in the thick of that, it always seems that I will be depressed forever, as I was way back when. Then it passes and I can see that it was just a bout of the blues and a bit of worry, which is normal and human.
I hope you are all well or hanging in. I'm thinking of you who visit often and as always, regretting I can't get to your blogs for every new post. And when I can, I am often called away by duty and cannot leave a comment. I wish you peace and a wonderful summer.
