Bob Dylan 70 years

Never has one single man's life meant so much to so many in my time.
In our little family we often argue which of his songs are best or most important. Even the four of us (Serina, Gunnar, Kel and I) do not agree.

We do, however, acknowledge that in the world of folk, pop, rock and contemporary Christian music there's only Bob Dylan, the eternal Jew, and then there are all the others.

I made these watercolors in a long forgotten youth, finding my way back home, while listening to Blood On The Tracks.

dear felisol...i never even knew bob dylan before i met you and i was missing out for sure.
this song here that you have is really good.
my favourite song of his is, "forever young" ...that is surely gunnar's song!
bob dylan was born again but just as elvis was too, the lives that they had were so hard...and the world was such an enemy..
the lord has said that "i will never leave thee nor forsake thee", and it is TRUE!! matter how far we may wander sometimes!...we have all been guilty of this, eh felisol?
love terry

I am not a music fan, but I read about him this week.

Felisol...what an Artist you are! These watercolors are gorgeous!
Jakob Dylan is quite the singer too and looks so much like his dad!

Amrita said...

I read about this and people celebrated in India too. He has many fans here too.

I know you love his music

I agree with you 100%, Elise. And my all time favorite Dylan sound is Knocking on Heaven's Door. I remember him all the way back to the beginning so I had a lot to choose from. Your paintings are gorgeous; they are so filled with his strange power and allure.

Your watercolor paintings are beautiful.

I believe Bob Dylan is an icon of our generation... a classic... and his soulful lyrics and music will never ever fade away.

Thank you for you recent visit to my blog and leaving the comment about Israel.

One more blog person who stands with Israel in this difficult hour makes heaven rejoice, I believe. And blessings are yours because of your stand.

Much love

Dear Lidj,
How could I not choose Israel's side and reckon myself a child of the Lord.
Psalm 137:5 "If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning."

I fear many will try to forget the prophesies in order to gain short time peace and profit.
I know from the Scripture that is the beginning to the end.

Felisol said...

The beginning of the end time is probably the right expression.

I don't think we should neither fear nor bare able stop the return of Christ.

This is so well described in the Bible.

Nevertheless I am so sad about all the overwhelming aggression against Israel, God's chosen People.

I neither can nor will be silent about this.
