i wish i had a river

Such a delicious distraction, music. I'm working, reading essays, and then Joni Mitchell enters, singing "River." Within seconds I am in my living room in Fort Collins, my cold hands wrapped around a mug of coffee, reading Tolstoy before my 9:00 class. Sometimes I wish I had a river I could skate away on, if only for an hour or two.
