"Immersion in the life of the world, a willingness to be inhabited by and to speak for others, including those beyond the realm of the human, these are the practices not just of the bodhisattva but of the writer." --Jane Hirshfield

Sound of Silence

Nah, it's Art Garfunkel, reading.

Hm, wonder what Dylan has been reading.

This came in as a comment from mirrorball, but it's too good not to list: http://ralphriver.blogspot.com/2006/09/more-dylan-thefts.html

Course to me, those "thefts" are more in the realm of homage to earlier masters. See what you think.

I don't know what Dylan's been reading, but according to this blog, we may hear echoes of whatever it is in his own work-

This kind of borrowing doesn't bother me much. I think that to some extent all writers have some right to dip into the communal stewpot. If Garfunkel ever writes a novel it'll be interesting to see where he borrows from :)
