Nearly there; only two more days and you can take out your earplugs. A short while ago, I (re)found this classic from Joni Mitchell. A friend was giving a concert at the Cadogan Hall with a couple of others, showcasing Female Singer-Songwriters. Carly and Adele and others made for a lovely evening. Then Mary sang this and the lyrics stopped me and made me think. I wrote a post about what the lyrics meant for me. So go Joni…
Here’s the opening lyrics…
Both Sides Now
Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere,
I’ve looked at clouds that way.
But now they only block the sun,
They rain and they snow on everyone
So many things I would have done,
But clouds got in my way.
I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It’s cloud illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all
If you want to go back to the post I’ve highlighted, here it is
The rules are:
Post a song a day for five consecutive days.
Post what the lyrics mean to you. (Optional)

Nominate 1 or 2 bloggers each day of the challenge.
It’s the nominate piece that I don’t like; I know this is an imposition but let’s have a think? Nope, no one. Maybe tomorrow
