Joni, the great

“I was demanding of myself a deeper and greater honesty, more and more revelation in my work, in order to give it back to the people; where it goes into their lives and nourishes them and changes their direction and, you know, makes light bulbs go off in their head and makes them feel. And you know it isn’t vague, it strikes against the very nerves of their life and in order to do that you have to strike against the very nerve of your own.” – Joni Mitchell
