now listen here youngin'

there's something very tragic, and yet so magical about being the youngest of five kids...

i just got done playing 'court and spark' by joni mitchell, a cd recommended by eva lake, who happens to be the same age as my sister, pammy. i couldn't help but think of pulling out pammy's 45's, placing them onto my cheap turntable, and hoping not to scratch the vinyl, listening to them over and over (along with my new bought records from my generation)....almost like a cult member, wishing to escape into another world...longing to forget everything, ANYTHiNG, as long as it meant temporary bliss.

and then i thought of going to sleep as a young child, hearing the thumping sounds of my brother eric's music blaring on the stereo system...mostly 'jesus christ super star,' 'ted nugent' and 'kiss.' if only i'd been recording a journal back then, oooooh...the dreams must've been beyond psychedelic!

my point being...

i feel like my childhood was some sort of dream that i'll never quite wake up from.. but, somehow..the mystery almost seems good enough....at least for now.

crazy eclectic mix of music in my house, i tellya! HAHAHA.. pammy was into the hippy/glam rock...eric, more of a hard rocker, and pat...all about everything early 80's! me? stuck in the 60's british invasion..you know it, girl!
oh, we mustn't forget dad and mom's herb albert collection! (and i don't think kim ever listened to one record?! but then again, the fog of me being 11 years younger than him could have something to do with that..)

Joni, Joni, Joni

my mother and I were not speaking eachother when I went away to college... she gave me a stack of Joni Mitchell CDs and sent me on my way....
almost 20 of them.

yup Joni is amazing

I love that childhood has mystery and I love that when i think back there I can still feel that mystery
