Mitchell has received eight Grammy Awards, including a lifetime achievement award in 2002. She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997. She started her career as a street musician in her native Canada before moving to Southern California, where she became part of the flourishing folk scene in the late 1960s. Her second album, “Clouds,” was a breakthrough with such songs as “Both Sides Now” and “Chelsea Morning,” winning Mitchell the Grammy for best folk performance. Her 1970 album, “Ladies of the Canyon,” featured the hit single “Big Yellow Taxi” and the era-defining “Woodstock.” The following year, she released “Blue,” which ranks 30th on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time.”.

I have offered to go to her, to have her come over, to bring her husband, to meet somewhere publicly — and she declines every option. She always comes back in a few weeks to ask when we can meet, and the cycle continues. How do I respond to her next request? I am confused by how much she approaches me to spend time together, only to decline every option I can think of to meet her. GENTLE READER: Contrary to popular belief, the scourge of casual interactions is not “How is your day going?” but, “We should get together.” People have learned not to fall for the former — realizing that they are not being asked for a detailed report — but the latter still deceives.
