I’ve never done anything but dream. This, and this alone, has been the meaning of my life. My only real concern has been my inner life. FERNANDO PESSOA

Camino Blues Revisited

I was listening to Dylan's Love And Theft again today. From Mississippi: You can always come back/But you can't come back all the way...

Yes. Yes. Yeeesss. Like Shakespeare and the Bible, there really is a Dylan line somewhere touching a nerve about everything one's ever imagined or experienced. And everything one's never imagined or experienced too.

You can never come back all the way, because you have changed, circumstances have changed, and time has moved on.

There was really bad typo in the first comment!

I meant to say...one of Bob's finest songs from his finest latter day album. That's all. The line you quote is so true.
