Song of the day: A Case of You by Joni Mitchell

The first time I heard this song I hated it. All the cracks and dips in her voice, and I couldn't get a hold of the melody right away and it bothered me. 

I was talking today about the tendency I have to hate things. Like innocent until proven guilty, I hate things until convinced I don't. Music is usually the only exception to this. And perhaps, strangers. 

But I was so desperately wrong about this song. And today when I rediscovered it on a playlist I made to help me write this novel, I was delighted. Joni is brilliant.
