Happy Trytophan Day!

Thanksgiving 2004: Many thanks for life, liberty, family, a fine job, stout martinis and the new U2. Many thanks also for the chance meeting, at a Seattle exhibit of Bob Dylan memorabilia, of Bruce Langhorne, the acknowledged inspiration for “Mr. Tambourine Man.”

Langhorne, a cool ponytailed brother up from L.A. for the proceedings, spotted me (the only other brother at the show) and we talked about Dylan, his music and style, and how we related to him as African Americans. Enlightening to say the least. We pledged to stay in touch, traded e-mails and went our separate ways, our bootheels to be wandering.
