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.....

Are you suggesting that 'Must be Santa' doesn't even get a look-in?

Ha, hmmmm, well far be it for me to dismiss any of Bobs work, but I'm afraid that one isn't high on my list of personal favourites :)

Kinda comes in the 'What Were They Thinking' category of odd choices by great artists I think.
