Get ready to say goodbye to Joni Mitchell.
The esteemed singer-songwriter was recently hospitalized after being found unconscious at her Southern California home. She is a survivor of childhood polio, 60 years of smoking, 50 years of fame (she called it “a glamorous misunderstanding”) and Morgellon’s syndrome.
Mitchell may not be long for this world. But she will leave behind a legacy of song that will outlast the century.
