I learned a bit more about Joni on this interview. Love the work, want to get a piece of the art... do you ever do a trade? I am down in Australia and a lifelong fan. If may be your finest work to date, Just astounding.

In my opinion, Joni's the greatest singer ever, not to mention wonderful songwriter, guitarist, pianist, artist. But I have to say, I'm so sad to see her with a cigarette.
I fear one day she, and us, will get the devastating news that she has lung cancer (just like my Mom). When that happens, you don't live long (Peter Jennings, etc.)
Joni, if you happen to read this, you are so talented, why do you want to poison yourself? Please stop, before it's too late. Those tobacco companies don't care about your life, but we all do.
Just please quit. And be busy being free. Please stop.

A concerned fan.
