Times, They Are a-Changin’

Today is my anniversary! I’ve been married for one year. My life is so changed compared to what it was. Fulfilled? Yes, in so many ways, the important ways!

Thinking back, I’ve left behind some circumstances but I am still myself.

Went to see Bob Dylan in concert last night and it’s great to see that he is still himself. He and his band played the old standard hits like “Lay, Lady, Lay,” “Just Like a Rolling Stone,” “Rainy Day Women,” and ended with “All Along the Watchtower,” all arranged with brilliant hard rock, driving beat and Dylan’s off-sync growling of the famous lyrics. The amplified harmonica parts went right through Skip. I felt the reverb from the instruments thundering in my chest as I tried to associate the vocals I was hearing with the more melodic version in the inner sanctum of my poor memory.

“When we meet again, introduced as friends, please don’t let on that you knew me when I was hungry, and it was your world.” I think I remember him best from the Concert for Bangladesh, when he performed with Leon Russell and others. At least, that was one album that I played so many times. “Tangled Up in Blue” is another one that is in my head, always in my head ready to be recalled.

We spoke to a lady in the parking lot who knows Dylan’s bus driver’s wife. She said that he never does “meet and greets” or stays to interact with the crowd, he just gets in the bus and goes. He stayed in the Hampton Inn in Ocala last night. She said, “Just because you’ve got a bunch of money doesn’t mean you have to spend it all!” It’s mind-boggling to think of the extent this man has shaped American music –er, world music–in the decades that he’s been performing.

Thankful!

Seasons are changing. It’s getting a little cooler. Family circumstances changing. Not as brave and fearless as I was in the 60’s and 70’s but I appreciate it all!
