Adriana´s post "Books, body and soul": my own version

The book, like a living creature, has both a physical body and an immaterial soul...

... said @Adriana in her post. This makes me reflect. I sit on my comfortable sofa closing my eyes, preparing myself to what I hope will be a brainstorm between myself and me. I remember another sentence:

The soul of a book you experience by reading.

I don´t know what to make out of this sentence. I´m not reading. I´m only sitting still. I continue, for what seems like a never ending time. Nothing happens, of course. I change position, feeling uncomfortable.

A strong smell hit me, filling the room from end to end. It is a very thick scent, a scent I can only describe as fear; I remember Adriana´s words:

I experienced (books) through my five senses.

Could this book be about… no, I won´t risk a hint. Not yet. What I can say right now, is that I just experienced one of my five senses. The smell.

In front of me is taking shape a faint body. The blurred image defines. It is a man.

The vision.

The man seems confused. I hear him whisper:

Where can I hide? – He looks around nervously.

The hearing.

This is a crime fiction! I´m a hundred percent sure. This poor man is the designated victim.

I pity him, and I put a reassuring hand on his shoulder.

The touch.

I cannot, I will not, leak the man!

Taste the book? (Not really!)… for hygiene and healthy reasons

Adriana´s words. What a relief!

24 May 2021 Bob Dylan will be 80 years old
Bob Dylan is in the list ' 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time Dylan's vision on American popular music was transforming. No one raised the bar, or had more impact. “You want to write songs that are bigger than life,” he wrote in his memoirs, Chronicles. “You want to say something about strange things that have happened to you, strange things you've seen.“Dylan himself saw no difference between modern times and legendary past - reading about the Civil War helped him understand the 1960s - allowing him to rewire folk ballads passed down from generation to generation into songs that excite both the present moment as lasting standards. Early songs like “Blowin “in the Wind” became hits for others — Peter, Paul & Mary were number two in the Billboard Hot 100 in 1963; Stevie Wonder released the number nine two years later — changing the ambitions of everyone, from the Beatles to Johnny Cash. 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time - Then Dylan started climbing the charts on his own with music that turned pop into prophecy: 'Subterranean Homesick Blues', 'Like a Rolling Stone', 'Positively Fourth Street', 'Rainy Day Women # 12 & 35.'His personas changed, but songs like “Tangled Up in Blue”, “Knockin 'on Heaven's Door” and “Forever Young” continued to define their epochs in a sustainable way. And only among his peers Dylan's creativity was incessant. The BobCast: looking for Bob Dylan On 24 May 2021 icon Bob Dylan will be 80 years old.
