Where the fuck is my Have You Never Been Mellow vinyl?!
She was my first records. (5th grade?)
I would read all the liner notes over and over.
I suspected that the producer was her boyfriend.
I could tell- just by his font that something was going on.
I studied, and I studied.
I said, I am going to have a boyfriend producer & ride a rocking horse jump-suited.
Some, I’ve never done, the other— be careful what you wish for ere your innocent nightmares manifest in an LA Peter-Pan house w/baobab tree.
These are my 2 moms, Both pictures taken in 1968.
Mother, top, is Leona C., with us, her 3 adopted children.
She was about 43 years old then.
This is typical of my mom- delighted by my antics.
My mom completely nurtured and supported all my creativity.
Leona died 5 years ago after suffering a long time from Alzheimer’s disease.
Mother hiking is Prairie E.
She had me, unmarried at 20, and gave me up.
Here she is at 22. I met her when I was 20.
She gave me the sound of my voice, and ‘talent’
(whatever you think that is).
Prairie is a mom to me now and a granny to my daughters.
I love you Moms, thank you.

Here’s a nice picture of Ani & I. It was such an honor to play there in that beautiful space. The verb was killer! I mean that in a good way.
