She took a break as Apollo 11 was about to land on the moon so the audience could watch on one of the TV monitors that were set up around the venue. I didn't realize that I had become separated from the group of friends with whom I attended the concert. The person next to me said "Isn't this cool? So unbelievable." I turned and looked into those big beautiful blue eyes beneath blond bangs - it was Joni standing alone right next to me. We talked about the moon landing like a couple of school kids and watched the TV until the newsman announced the touchdown. She then said something to the effect that "That was exciting-now I have to get back to work." We smiled at one another and I admit 42 years later that I've had a crush on Joni since that day...

Moon landing, history being made, our history just starting. I remember that Joni became very sad and had to take a pretty long break. Cactus Tree seemed to choke her up. Now I understand, after many loves myself. I marvel now how a young woman could know so much so early, and have to wonder about the wellspring of creativity. And there was the green dress again!
