Everybody is waiting for cooler weather--and I am just waiting for you--. (Bob Dylan in a letter)
I timed my previous wife's pregnancy to the moment to have my son born on Bob Dylan's 50th birthday. There is no bigger Bob Dylan fan than me. You don't just time the day and impregnate your wife to get your kid to be born on Bob Dylan's 50th birthday.

Be grateful for the things you don't have that you don't want." -Bob Dylan's Dad

But, like Shakespeare, I too am often occupied with the pursuit of my creative endeavors and dealing with all aspects of life's mundane matters. "Who are the best musicians for these songs?"

Once upon a time You dressed so fine
