favorite color

My heart is moved by all I cannot save:
so much has been destroyed
I have to cast my lot with those
who age after age, perversely,
with no extraordinary power,
reconstitute the world.
Adrienne Rich (16 may 1929 - 27 march 2012) poet & essayist

today's vibrant wall was done by kazilla (aka cassie williams) - originally from santa fe kazilla now lives and works in miami.  kazilla's women centric work  straddles  the worlds of street art and fine art and is distinctive with her use of bold colors and lines and frequent incorporation of animals. 

in late march the brilliant poet and feminist essayist adrienne rich died - my haphazard blogging failed to recognize this loss to our world  - today i belatedly pay respects and give thanks to ms rich.  

favorite color a very early joni mitchell song - in fact the song doesn't seem to appear on any recordings and this video was recorded before joni was joni!  her she is introduced on the canadian television program, let's sing out in 1965 by her given name joan anderson!  

oscar brandt's introduction is priceless as is joni's performance.
