Thank you for sharing this insight! Finally, someone hears what I've been hearing for years but have been alone in the wilderness. Much of his oeuvre, especially the most recent several albums, has been love songs to, say, a ''greater being,'' or Existence, or the Universe. Once I recognized this, I revisited old songs and often could hear conversations simultaneously - one with an actual lover, and one with God.... A slight difference of opinion, if I may. I don't feel Dylan thinks of God as either male or female....nor do I feel Dylan is weary or desirous of death. Most certainly I don't believe he ever has felt abandoned by God. Maybe abandoned by females, but not by God.

Thanks for your comment. It's valuable to hear the variety of responses Dylan evokes. I appreciate your taking the time to write.

What a ONEderful take...

Thanks!
