I was delighted to hear that Bob Dylan had been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature today. What a unique writer, constantly surprising. He’s always been one of my favourite poets. To be truly unique as a writer is a rare, rare thing. Thoroughly deserved and shame on the writers who feel the decision was controversial. His words stand alone without the music. I hope the same comes to Cohen in his lifetime. My friend sent me a recent article on Cohen which is worth sharing:
I’ve been too tired to work much this week and have found the house cold and the bed too comfortable. I’ve bought Rupi Kaur’s Milk and Honey and am looking forward to reading that in bed. I also have another issue of The Dawntreader to read. Work has felt much longer than 8 hours every day. The winding up and winding down take so long it’s about a 13 hour day in all. I need to try and do an hour of writing now if I can. I was just so excited about the Dylan news I had to turn to the blog to say it.
