Vitality

He won two more Grammies last night.

















It's not for awards that life is lived. He knows who he is. His accomplishments and capabilities are known to him with or without acclaim from the fickle folks who pick and choose who gets a nod and who doesn't.


















Still, they were given, and I'm pointing it out, just because.


Bobby Dylan. Still creating. Still playing. Still vital.






For what it's worth, Bobby, we listen, we watch, we enjoy! It's all good.


















Bob Dylan's words of acceptance after receiving his Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1991: "Yeah, my daddy, he didn't leave me too much, you know, he was a very simple man, and he didn't leave me a lot, but what he told me was this, he said, "Son,"........He said so many things, you know..........He said, "You know, it's possible to become so defiled in this world that your own mother and father would abandon you, and if that happens God will always believe in your own ability to mend your own ways. Thank you."'
