Westbound and Rolling

Elephant Journal is running with a fine ball of memory: Joni Mitchell and Trungpa Rinpoche, and how she came to write "Refuge of the Road" for him -- which should probably be our collective theme song. You need to visit this one.

“I met a friend of spirit, 

…a drunk with sage's eyes

And I sat before his sanity

I was holding back from crying

He saw my complications

And he mirrored me back simplified

And we laughed how our perfection

Would always be denied

“Heart and humor and humility”

He said “Will lighten up your heavy load”

and he sent me then to the refuge of the roads…”
