Just came across this interview with Bob Dylan where he talks about mysticism, Barack Obama, and the American South.

And have been meaning to post the talk below by the woman who wrote and illustrated THE PRINCIPLES OF UNCERTAINTY, one of my newest most treasured books:

Click below on the excerpt from the poem linked to by Velveteen Rabbi on April 7 to find out more about the Blessing of the Sun:

. . . In the very end, in the fourth,

unseen dimension that has been here

from the very beginning, unfolding

just outside the limits of our perception . . .

And a new song by the man who joked with Mavis Staples about having read something in "Snoozeweek."

(The sunrise-through-the-cottonwood-trees photo was taken from my porch this morning. Notice the right ear of the driver in the car in the photo directly above. Great photo. I wonder who the photographer is. There are at least six people in this photo. When I first saw the photo, I thought it was a man and a woman in the back seat of the car, but now I'm not so sure. I'm curious about the tattoo. Come to think of it, this photo is splendidly full of people -- of the past, the present and future.)

wow. So many things to see and do here, this morning!
I'll have to come back later. For now, I'm off to count the number of people in the photo!

(but I'll be back, I promise!)

add this to your French vocabulary:

à +

meaning 'à plus tard' i.e. catch you later.
