I’m watching a documentary about Joni Mitchell (Woman of Heart and Mind)

My favorite quote from her thus far, and another one I’d like to fold up and put in my locket of songwriting wisdom to remember (which is why I’m writing it here – a digital locket of sorts):

“In order to get the right spirit into the music, there has got to be more than just a working relationship. There has to be a sense of passion. There has to be something there for the heart. There has to be something there for the intellect. There has to be something there for the sensuality and the sensation.”
