« "Quadruple Abecedarian: His First Solo Vacation" [by John Deming] | Main | Find Craig Arnold: UPDATE »

April 30, 2009


Thanks for sharing this.

i remember in the early 60s i was maybe 2 or 3 years old, my father took me 2 a park every saturday morning on north arlington ave, in east orange NJ. bob would come over the river thru newark and go to the gleasons house to see woody who was visiting over the weekend from the hospital.they lived across the street from the park on north arlington ave. i remember bob dylan sitting on the swing with that guitar/harmonica thing, all skinny and pale, with dark rough clothes and i would spin around and around on this merry go round and think 2 myself what a strange bird this was. he certainly wasnt from around here, yet i fell deeply and permanently in love with his gentle and ferrocious spirit on those saturday mornings in the park.
