I was born in 1989 in Argentina. For some reason that I don't know, I never knew anything about Joni Mitchell till the summer of 2009. Since then I have admired her music very much.
A week ago I dreamt that she was a teacher in my elementary school, and that I talked to her, but I couldn't tell her how much I liked her work. The funny thing is that she spoke Spanish (my mothertongue). Since I dreamt that, I have had this odd feeling inside me whenever I think of her. I don't know if it is some kind of reminiscence or only a residual impression left by the dream itself. I don't even know why I'm posting this here, and I know that she will never read it,but I wanted to share it, for reasons that I don't know. Long live Joni!
