Teresa of Ávila and the tempest

"Most artists work all the time. Especially the good ones. I mean, what else is there to do?" (David Hockney)

Looking out the window in the morning from the Community Food Co-op: 

New from Bob Dylan, to be released on September 11, with Teresa of Ávila on the CD cover.

"So it is, in truth; for I used frequently to recollect how our Lord, when the tempest arose, commanded the winds to be still over the sea."
(Teresa of Ávila)

Update from September 2, 2012:

Thanks to Michael Gray Outtakes for the correction.  It isn't Teresa of Avila after all, although it is reminiscent of her.  

Lyrics from "When the Deal Goes Down":

In the still of the night, in the world's ancient light
Where wisdom (am's italics) grows up in strife
My bewildering brain, toils in vain
Through the darkness on the pathways of life
Each invisible prayer is like a cloud in the air
Tomorrow keeps turning around
We live and we die, we know not why
But I'll be with you when the deal goes down

Heard about the new album yesterday. Great to have some new Bob to look forward to.
