The CD was an unexpected gift and a gift it was! The card read, "Give this a few tries." Well, the first nano second of music broke through years of personal, illusive waiting. I hadn't realized that I had been waiting but as joanna offered her lyrics and her cry, so did I...the words and the tunes were something I already knew deep inside...I was lead home soulfully, intelligently and oh so courageously and playfully. A virtuoso performance intimately showing how words/thoughts should sound and travel, where they will, around your heart's history. Not for everyone, but listen carefully and ask yourself carefully, "When was I ever this honest?"
