"A gypsy with a broken flag and a flashing ring
He said, Son, this ain't a dream no more it's the real thing."
--Bob Dylan "Senor: Tales of Yankee Power"
Nothing is as powerful as the extraordinary jolt of a teenager's first love. It's like seeing the world after double-cataract surgery. Life is suddenly exquisite. Each leaf becomes the bearer of unbearable beauty.
There's a long, long trail a-winding into the land of my dreams.
