Joni Mitchell, at tribute to her summer 2013

  DMCA


I spent some time on this lazy Thanksgiving day viewing Joni Mitchell videos. They reignited old memories and brought a few chills and tears. I must say, I loved Joni back in the sixties and seventies. 

This fall, Joni turned seventy. This little visit includes a few of her songs from the sixties, an interview with her this fall, after she turned 70-- damn she's smart-- a video of her doing jazz with Pat Metheny and Jaco Pastorius, and finally a tribute to her done this summer. The tribute closes with Joni singing. 

In her interview, done after the tribute,  she says she's done singing.

Here's her Wikipedia page, where it reports:
" Mitchell has deeply influenced fellow musicians in a diverse range of genres, and her work is highly respected by critics.  Allmusic  said, "When the dust settles, Joni Mitchell may stand as the most important and influential female recording artist of the late 20th century,"  and  Rolling Stone  called her "one of the greatest songwriters ever." [  Her lyrics are noted for their developed poetics, addressing social and environmental ideals alongside personal feelings of romantic longing, confusion, disillusion, and joy. "

Thank you Joni. You've been an extraordinary singer, artist, thinker. You've brightened so many lives. 



 

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
