"I have gotten into a very reflective zone in the last couple of days. I remember a friend who mentioned once that studying masters’ in London had been amazing. I disagree here, because there were so many aspects to it than merely amazing. It was horrible, good, amazing, painful, lovely, worth remembering... it was everything.
But that is what life is. If it’s amazing every day, you’ll get bored. You need all emotions to actually cherish a particular one. When people say it’s been amazing for the whole year, they are lying and are just trying to sell an idea.
I feel that honesty is important because people look up to you, especially the next generation that will come here. They should be prepared properly! For me, I wasn’t prepared, especially for winters. Nobody told me how short the winters will actually be. I got really worried! So in general just be honest with yourself and to everyone around you. Don’t exaggerate situations or underplay a particular event. It is what it is...let it pass… When I feel sad, I always tell people that I won’t fight myself to be happy, because it’s my natural emotion. The constant focus on being positive completely undermines other emotions like being sad, tired or weak.
Those are also emotions and they are made for a reason and meant to be felt.
So you should let them in as well. It’s important to let every emotion pass, just like you let every season pass. You can’t fast forward a season, thus you shouldn’t fast forward your emotions as well." (London, United Kingdom) [swipe right for special note from @baatein] (Link to full story in website)

Bob Dylan is undoubtedly the greatest lyricist of his, or any, generation. Strongly influenced by the Beat poets and folk music icons, his songs of protest and personal experience introduced a new lyrical sophistication to the realm of pop music, inspiring such future luminaries as The Beatles and David Bowie. Revered as the voice of a generation, a deification he would constantly reject both publicly and within his songs, Dylan always played by his own rules, maintained his integrity and smashed through barriers. As such, it's hard to pick out a definitive Dylan song but "Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again" is as good an example as any of his dazzling wordplay and arresting use of imagery. In Bob we trust. #thebeatles #poetry #stuckinsideofmobilewiththememphisbluesagain #bobdylan #davidbowie #popmusic #poet #icon #writing #blondeonblonde #music #lyrics
