Way back when, I had a handmade sign in m office, quoting Dylan -- "20 years of schoolin' and they put you on the day shift." No truer words could be spoken about my life at that time. Dylan does that, brings the truth out. He can caress with the softest of words, and just as well cut like a knife.
I remember Jim singing Dylan to me, on our way down from the mountain. "You're gonna make me lonesome when you go." Be still my beating heart.
I remember my sister, in the Sixties, had a neon colored print of Dylan, that said "Mr Tambourine Man". It was very cool.
Today I don't know what Dylan is up to, although he has out a new album, I believe. Hopefully he is still writing poetry.
