Music Monday celebrates Joni Mitchell

Last week was all about women for me, beginning with Monday’s music post featuring Ella Fitzgerald,  A few days later, a girlfriend and I attended a wonderful exhibit by American artist, Georgia O’Keeffe.

Fantastic show and worth seeing if you’re in Toronto, closing July 30th so go soon.

On Saturday, I hosted an all-female barbeque, It was great to bring six smart women of diverse backgrounds together for an evening of food and fun.

As I was trying to think of whom to feature this week, Joni Mitchell appeared on T.V. in a news item.

She seemed the obvious choice.

“Little Green” was written in 1967 about the daughter she gave up for adoption. Mitchell reunited with her thirty years later.

And then another woman made the news … Princess Diana died twenty years ago, hard to believe. 😦

Time flies, so I hope you take it slow and enjoy.

    Time does fly. I remember exactly where I was when I heard the news of Princess Diana’s death – and it certainly doesn’t seem like 20 years ago. I can’t imagine living in the fish bowl of her life. I also remember hearing about Mitchell’s reunion with her daughter. I understand that many people had previously claimed to be her daughter (I mean, why not give it a shot!). Heartbreak certainly does make for good lyrics…”You are sad and sorry but not ashamed…” Such courage. Thanks Eden!

  3. I’m planning to revisit the O’Keeffe exhibition this week before it ends. She’s one of my favorite artists.
