... funny, engaging, intense, and he was persistent."

An old friend has been talking about Dr. Who? and so I went to YouTube to see what I could find and was delighted to find Charlie again.

And this:

Bob Dylan playing Dr. Who:

"Tug on anything at all and you'll find it connected to everything else in the universe."
(John Muir)

"... Wasn't making any great connection / Wasn't falling for any intricate scheme ..." (Bob Dylan, line from from "Series of Dreams")

Take a look at the 4th video here to hear Bob Dylan sing Woody Guthrie's "Do Re Me."

Suze Rotolo said that Bob Dylan was, "funny, engaging, intense, and he was persistent. These words completely describe who he was throughout the time we were together; only the order of the words would shift depending on mood or circumstance."

He still is.

Today is his 70th birthday.

We've all come a long way. Remember this from 1971?

I can picture Charlie Brown celebrating today, too. He must have had a favorite Bob Dylan song. You can tell by the way he smiles.

Happy Birthday, Bob!

Had to stop by to say hello and mark Bob Dylan's 70th birthday with you. An amazing thing to think that young poet of my youth turns 70 today. Love that Charlie Brown comic.
