Freedoms


This is a nation that has lost the ability to be self-critical, and that makes a lie out of the freedoms. ~Joni Mitchell

Sad commentary on our ability to self govern.

Wow, that's a heavy one from Joni! But a pretty damned good one, though! It beats than coming across a child of god anytime!

icarus- I love Joni too, she speaks the truth as always.

I must be pretty free because I'm incredibly self-critical :/ (I know that's not exactly what she meant.) I love Joni's words to her music. I always come away with a message after playing it. BTW, I named one of my dog's after her because she had long blonde hair and big teeth. Joni lived for 17 1/2 years. Thanks for sharing another great post Michelle :)

Yep, I do the self-critical thing too and it doesn't feel too freeing a lot of the time. I had to laugh about your dog with long hair and big teeth, a Joni clone ;) Wow, she lived a long life too. Thanks for stopping by, Laurel, it's always as pleasure!
