Happy Birthday, Bob Dylan

You may be forever young, thanks to permanent records and films,  but you're 70, which means you'll always be older than me and nowadays, older than most of your fans.

But the guy who is always busy being born has added something special to his legacy in recent years: a way to grow old and add to the music he made as a contemporary of those who burned out or faded away.  Your music now reflects that you were so much younger then, and you're older than that now.  And that's a good thing, for all of us.

Happy 70th.
