Well, I wanna be your lover, baby, I don't wanna be your boss.
~ Bob Dylan, born May 24, 1941
This line (from "It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry") was always a personal anthem of mine.
A few things about Bob Dylan:
* My mother was in Hadassah with his mother.
* My sister went to summer camp with his daughter.
* I sat in the front row at the Rolling Thunder concert, Thanksgiving 1975, Bangor, Maine. My boyfriend had waited on line for 24 hours to get those seats.
* I wanted to be a poet when I found out that someone had written "Blowin' in the Wind." Till then I had thought that poems & songs were natural objects, like rocks. It blew me away, age 10, to discover that a guy — from the next state over, no less — had come up with it not found it.
