On Bob Dylan:

is the reason he keeps on touring because he himself does not believe in his ability as a performer/poet/comedy actor/dj/painter/writer/movie actor/prophet he keeps touring? He never quite measures up to himself, yet he is brilliant and erratic, flawed and keeps us all delighted the rest who don’t appreciate him, clearly identified.

Getting up late today, finished breakfast coffee and nuts. Grandpa arrives nearby with his grandson. The car is modest and clean. He asks me in Swedish and changes language, he tells me that he had gone to Nordkapp by car two years ago by car. It was very nice and told me of a place to stop but I have forgotten it. The weather was very nice…. have a nice day we both said and waved as I pack my belongings. I admired their half-hearted attempt to fish together from that still and vibrating lake.
