Monday Muse - Joni Mitchell River

I'm spending much of my "free time" in January editing a children's chapter book that I wrote this autumn during the annual online event known as "National Write a Novel Month" or NaNoWriMo, for short.  My story takes place on and near a river in Tennessee, outside of Knoxville.  As I edit, I find it pleasant to listen to music and I've been having fun finding songs that fit the theme of my novel.  I have loved and listened to this song by Joni Mitchell for much of my life.  The iconic Snoopy skating to this beautiful music is a delight, although I did have to stop editing long enough to watch.  Not sure how productive that was!

Where ever you are, whatever the weather, 
I wish you success in the pursuit of your personal goals this year, 
and most of all,, 
I wish you joy in the journey.

I don't remember that Joni MItchell song but it certainly is beautiful and your book sounds wonderful. :) Happy New Year!
