Everybody’s Cryin’ Mercy

If I could be anyone for one day, it would be Bonnie Raitt. Big, big fan here, yes. My brother made us wait for her after a concert in Ann Arbor several years ago. Not something I’d normally do. He took a picture of the two of us, me grinnng like a 10-year-old. Her songs are so rich — and that guitar playing — oye. Always appreciate, too, how she somehow works in a little gratitude for the black musicians who so richly informed her music over the years. Yep, for one day, if I could be anyone else, it would be Miss Bonnie. That voice.
