Pat Bracewell, a writer friend and reader of this blog sent me a link to her most recent essay, "Circles," in the June issue of Skirt!.

She writes about singing Joni Mitchell's "The Circle Game" for at her friend's 20th birthday party, and then playing it again for her friends 38 years later. And now, of course, they all have sons and daughters of their own, and the words take on a new meaning. It's a good read, and if you, like us, also have college-age kids, it may even bring a few tears to your eyes.

Thanks for including me in your post, Sara. I've never been in a blog before!!!! BTW, there's a new book out called "Girls Like Us" that tells the stories of Carole King, Joni Mitchell, and Carly Simon. It's high on my "to read" list. Pat
