Vintage Joni

Since I can remember my mother played Joni Mitchell cd's in the background of our house growing up. There is something (to this day) about Joni's voice, her melancholy open-heart, her vulnerable yet powerful soul, her brilliant lyrics and her poetry. Case and point:

"He’s my sunshine in the morning
He’s my fireworks at the end of the day
He’s the warmest chord I ever heard
Play that warm chord, play and stay baby"

I had to share this video because Joni's voice, her art, it is all magic and I am so grateful I grew up knowing that true art and music coexist. She translates and expresses the complexities of her emotions and the depth. I can go months without listening to Joni and then as soon as I hear her again, I know that I am home.
Thanks Mom
