big yellow taxi.

joni mitchell is literally from my neck of the woods. the city i am living in now is the city that she grew up in. how cool is that?

“big yellow taxi” is my favorite song by mitchell. while it is a song that is based more on environmentalism than the environment that mitchell was raised in, i can’t help but envision summer fields, parking lots, screen doors, and wide, dusty porches each time i hear it. to me, that description wholly encompasses a typical summer here on the warm and sprawling land that is the canadian prairies.

hope you can listen to this and get a sense of where i come from. happy monday. :-)

    Joni Mitchell is terrific I agree. Brings out the inner hippie in us all. However she was smart. She got the heck out of Dodge in the winter
