Question 42 / Late summer days / "The scenery in his mind"

"All sorrows can be borne if you can put them into a story or tell a story about them." 

"But it's not to stand naked under unknowin' eyes
It's for myself and my friends my stories are sung." 
(Bob Dylan, lyrics from "Restless Farewell," early 1960s)

From Bob Dylan's first album 50 years ago.  Fifty years ago:

"Perseverance furthers." (from the I-Ching)

"... Leo took his sketchbook
He was often so inclined
He closed his eyes and painted
The scenery in his mind ..."
("Titanic" lyrics by Bob Dylan from "Tempest")
