Merry Christmas, Etc...

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays...... Etc...... :)
I'm away visiting my family in the North-West.
Its a white Christmas. Snow on the ground, and there was a beautiful blue sky this afternoon.
Beautiful day. Nice to be away for a while.

The sun is dropping now and the snow is starting to melt already.
Had a great relaxed day. Ate too much.
Huge lunch at parents. Always good :)

Resting for a while now before doing anything this evening.

Far From Where I'm Supposed To Be...

'I was born very far from where I'm supposed to be, and so I'm on my way home.
Bob Dylan, interviewed in No Direction Home.

I really like this quote from Dylan, talking about his work & life in the Martin Scorsese 2005 documentary 'No Direction Home'.
I love Bob Dylan's music and today I've been listening to Dylan all morning while working.
Tried to work out my favourite Dylan songs while I was busy editing photos, but realised it changes all the time, one day to the next - from one mood to another.
So all I have is 10 I love today, in no particular order;

- Love Minus Zero/No Limit
- Don't Think Twice, It's All Right
- Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again
- It's All Over Now, Baby Blue
- Like A Rolling Stone
- It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)
- I Want You
- Desolation Row
- Shelter From The Storm
- Simple Twist Of Fate

That's today, this could easily be different tomorrow.
Dylan is on my Wish-List of portraits..... maybe one day.....
