Myspace - Cortney Tidwell - Joni Mitchell tribute (blog)
Gevonden op de myspace van Cortney Tidwell :
When i first heard there was going to be joni mitchell tribute record, i was excited, elated and bummed because i could not be a part of it... so much of my musical existence stems from her music, her ideas, her courage and strength. she is the biggest inspiration to me still.... for the last twenty years of my life she was there, when no one else could be found. and she seemed to understand my feelings, she had the answers to my questions..
and i wonder if these people who contribute in her honor, love her like i do.. ?? i wonder..
she deserves our respect.. she deserves yours , she deserves mine, she is a wizard of poetry... her lyrics are, in my opinion, some of if not the most important of our time.. her creativity with rhythm and words combined, is special.. she has a special gift and she deserves to be honored and adored..
she is a queen.. she is a dream... with all these men (dylan, young, ) around stealing all her glory all these years.
( i love dylan mind you, but she was never recognized like he was and still is) when they get around to it,, they will realise how important.. how superior she is.. she is in another time, and place.. she has insight like no other woman.. she interprets our feelings, our vulnerabilty and transforms it into something beautiful.. ... her perception of the female mind is amazing.. she is amazing..
so let it be known that i worship at the altar of joni.
forever and always
