As we head into this seventh week of isolation I think I need something soothing.
Joni does that for me. He laughter and beautiful voice cool me down. But more important is her music and poetic lyrics.
I used to play Blue endlessly. It was such a wonderful album, so intricate, lyrical and melodic and her words are superb.
I only ever managed to see her perform once – but that was with Crosby Still Nash and Yong and The Band – so not a bad gig. I wish I’d seen her on her own though in a small club – just her and her guitar.
So I shall play Joni all day and relish the notes as they waft over me.
