Perhaps inspired by Joni Mitchell’s classic song, Both Sides Now. I am listening to Joni Mitchell The Reprise Albums (1968 – 1971). You can learn more about the Joni Mitchell Archives from the Joni Mitchell Official Website.

Both Sides Now is from Clouds, and other albums by Joni Mitchell.

Creative Notes: I wrote the poem for this post today. Poetry began for me earlier than I can remember, when I was growing up in a Lutheran church. I loved the Psalms, liturgy, and hymns.

Joni Mitchell’s Reprise Albums (1968 – 1971) go back to junior and senior high school years for me. I am grateful that Joni feels able to work on her archive series, and to all who help make this work possible.

Blessings,
Ellen Grace Olinger
