Happy Birthday

I heard on the radio that Bob Dylan turned 66 today. I can't say how important I think he is, so listen sometime to a song titled "Song to Woody." It's off of his first album, and is an ode to one of his greatest influences, Woody Guthrie. It's annealed with themes that later made him famous, and, as when reading Hemingway, you get the sense that its writing is continuously apical, even when trudging through our ills.

p.s. My favorite song is called "Girl of the North Country." Check it out sometime as well if you have the time.

Happy Birthday Bob!

My dad saw your photo of Garner state park and loved it. Says you're a good photographer.
