bob & joan

What a beautiful couple they were. A few years ago, I had the delight of seeing Joan Baez give a fairly intimate performance at Bloomington's Buskirk-Chumley theatre. John Mellencamp, our favorite Bloomington resident (who has recently been dating Meg Ryan!), was in the audience. Joan saw him from stage and said she'd heard he was getting ready to tour with Bob Dylan and asked him to say "hello" for her. Funny to me how those two became such a legend. And how "Diamonds and Rust" is so clearly about Bob, without ever saying his name. ("You burst on the scene, already a legend. The unwashed phenomenon— the original vagabond.")
