Today's Mood: dealing "Blonde on Blonde"

I've been listening to this album constantly for inspiration. "Visions of Johanna" and "One of Us Must Know (Sooner or Later)" are the two that have been getting the most play. I don't even know where to start on my praises of Bob Dylan. I know that his voice is not what most people would call good, same with my pal Lou Reed, but he is such a lyrical genius that I feel like mere dust in comparison. I've been marveling at his word play and storytelling, it is pure heaven to me. I hope to someday meet him and share ideas. Is this silly? I don't think so.

It's not silly. My hero, CS Lewis is long dead, but I still think about seeing him in heaven one day and talking about Narnia, and Perelandra!
My hubby is a gifted muscian and loves the band Rush...(eeewww! not me!). I know he would be estatic to sit around with "Geddy" Lee and talk about the Bass. Who knows? Maybe one day :)

Not silly at all. One of my favorite songs in this whole world is "Like a Rolling Stone".

Yeah, I know it's one of the most well known ones therefore making me unoriginal, but I still love it.
