  1. Gorgeous image! Feeling blue is usually not my preferred way to start the weekend…:P
    but this type of flowers-weaving-themselves-into-Mr.Redpathยดs head- is quite cool to look at! And blue is a cool color, so voila. Lol. Abrazos andaluces (PS: How long do Dylanยดs songs stay in oneยดs mind? Itยดs been like a week of humming this song you quoted haha)

    1. ยกHola! And thank you for such a civil
      Seville style Andalusian greeting ๐Ÿ™
      To answer your question, Gypsy,
      I always find the way get a Dylan
      song out of my head is to put another
      one straight back in ๐Ÿ˜Ž

      I lived with them
      on Montague Street
      In a basement down the stairs
      There was music in the cafรฉs at night
      And revolution in the air
      Then he started into dealing with slaves
      And something inside of him died
      She had to sell everything she owned
      And froze up inside
      And when finally the bottom fell out
      I became withdrawn
      The only thing I knew how to do
      Was to keep on keepin’ on
      Like a bird that flew
      Tangled up in blue
      ~ Bob Dylan

      1. My pleasure, I try being civil at times ๐Ÿ˜€
        That technique of yours is a good one-
        there is no sun this week
        the sky is looking a little bleak
        so music and words of beauty to fill up the soul
        leads one back to feeling whole:)
        Thanks for your offering of Bob
        itยดs so beautiful but I wonยดt sob
        but give you thanks for teaching me
        the Dylan ways
        aka the music sunshine rays ๐Ÿ™‚

      2. Then well deserve are these words
        from one of the deepest Winter love
        songs I have ever heard. That even
        includes a splash of blue ๐Ÿ˜Ž …

        Twilight on the frozen lake
        North wind about to break
        On footprints in the snow
        Silence down below.

        You’re beautiful beyond words
        You’re beautiful to me
        You can make me cry
        Never say goodbye.

        Time is all I have to give
        You can have it if you choose
        With me you can live
        Never say goodbye.

        My dreams are made
        of iron and steel
        With a big bouquet
        Of roses hanging down
        From the heavens to the ground.

        The crashing waves roll over me
        As I stand upon the sand
        Wait for you to come
        And grab hold of my hand.

        Oh, baby, baby, baby blue
        You’ll change your last name, too
        You’ve turned your hair to brown
        Love to see it hangin’ down.

        ~ Bob Dylan

    1. And all the lights are shining
      on the sea
      As the rolling waves crash
      along the beach
      And our minds were meant to sail
      Take a rest from our thoughts
      Take a brake from this world
      And we’ll feel miles away
      From the places that we used to be
      ~ Years Around the Sun

  2. I never realized it until now, David, because you’re always wearing sunglasses, but if that portrait is correct and your eyes are blue , then you’re the spitting image of a friend of mine in Edmonton.

    His father was the publisher of the newsmagazine I used to work for.

    1. “Mine eyes have read the story
      of the second coming of the Lord”
      (๐ŸŽถ to the of John Brown’s Body)
      No, Chis. My eyes are hazel ๐Ÿ‘€
      A bit of Michael’s artist licence ๐ŸŽจ
      But I assume your friend must look
      just like Johnny Depp in his movie
      ‘What’s Eating Gilbert Grape’ ๐Ÿ˜Ž
      His eyes are hazel too.

      “He is trampling out the vintage
      whereย the grapes of wrathย are
      He hath loosed the fateful lightning
      of His terrible swift sword:
      His truth is marching on.”
      (Jesus … not Johnny Depp)

      1. Actually What’s Eating Gilbert Grape is one Johnny Depp movie I’ve never seen before.
        Or even heard of until now I must admit.
        My friend also has a singing voice that very much resembles that of Josh Groban.
        Do you have a singing voice like Josh Groban, David?

      2. I’ve spent a long time perfecting
        my Bob Dylan vocal impersonation.
        My wife hates it ’cause I got that
        hill billy twang just right ๐Ÿ˜ฉ
        I suspect the book ‘What’s Eating
        Gilbert Grape’ , by Peter Hedge, is
        a perhaps tongue in cheek 70 year
        jump into the future hommage to
        the great John Steinbeck novel,
        The Grapes of Wrath. But then, I’m
        not an American, so what would I
        know? ๐Ÿค”
        Anyway, if you are intending to view
        the movie don’t invite Pan Goatee
        to watch it with you. Your TV set is
        sure to end up in 999 trillion pieces.
