Bob Dylan wins Nobel Prize for Literature! What unexpected news breaking this morning. The gravely voiced troubadour and philosopher wrote and performed as the conscious of the 60’s. He was influenced and inspired by the legendary folk singer, Woodie Guthrie. His favorite themes were pro-civil rights justice and anti- war, specifically anti-Vietnam war of the 60s and 70s. Today at 75 years of age, he is still a voice for causes of justice and especially for the those of us who were touched by his words and voice. He is still touring and performing almost nightly.
“Blowing in the Wind,” and “Times They Are a-Changing” are two of my favorites.
