Joni Mitchell . . .must be considered a treasure and not just a national treasure of her native Canada but i think it’s fair to say of the world. She is indeed a Global Goddess. I can remember as a young teenager in the early 1970’s hearing her hit song Big Yellow Taxi all over the airwaves. Well they never stopped playing it, but back in the day I didn’t really get it. I mean it never really occurred to me just how wonderful Joni was – and of course will always be. She is a gift to the world. You can look at live recorded performances of Joni across the years and her amazing qualities of grace and sensitivity combined with sparkling brightness and musical genius highlight the simple and profound truth. It’s hard for us to imagine what a God or a Goddess might look like if rendered in the humble guise of a human being. Looking at Joni these days with the benefit of hindsight, it could easily be imagined that she is certainly a representative of the Goddess Saraswatti – the Goddess of The Arts, music, science (surely including healing) and knowledge, learning and literature. Meanwhile the message of Big Yellow Taxi is more relevant, poignant and urgent than ever. Here’s a peek at the Goddess and a celebration of a beautiful human being.
