It Ain’t Me Babe by Bob Dylan (1964)
Someone to open each and every door.
No no no, it ain’t me you’re looking for…
New Orleans, Aug/2005
Handwritten notes left in 2010’s funeral:
- “Since this is a church, I’m going to be nice. You made me lose my home. You may have taken away my life as I know it but you’ll never take away my spirit.”
- “Thank God you are gone but unfortunately you will never be forgotten.”
And we, as they, must never forget it.
"The fact of my having been the common prisoner of a common gaol I must frankly accept, and, curious as it may seem, one of the things I shall have to teach myself is not to be ashamed of it. I must accept it as a punishment, and if one is ashamed of having been punished, one might just as well never have been punished at all. Of course there are many things of which I was convicted that I had not done, but then there are many things of which I was convicted that I had done, and a still greater number of things in my life for which I was never indicted at all. And as the gods are strange, and punish us for what is good and humane in us as much as for what is evil and perverse, I must accept the fact that one is punished for the good as well as for the evil that one does. I have no doubt that it is quite right one should be. It helps one, or should help one, to realise both, and not to be too conceited about either. And if I then am not ashamed of my punishment, as I hope not to be, I shall be able to think, and walk, and live with freedom."
- Oscar Wilde
Kiss from a Rose - Seal
I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey.
The more I get of you,
Stranger it feels, yeah.
And now that your rose is in bloom.
A light hits the gloom on the grey.
