Today is Bob Dylan's 70th birthday. He has been a music icon for five decades! He was born Robert Alan Zimmerman. But inspired by poet Dylan Thomas he just called himself what he wanted to be called. How cool! That got me to thinking what it would be like if I called myself Bear Dylan. I wonder if I could write and record songs like Barkin' in the Wind or Like a Rolling Bone. Hmmm. If I can blog, why not song write? I think I will ask Mom for a guitar.
