No Direction Home

I965: An academic slowmotion train wreck, bad 'tude, bad habits, hated school, was told not to even bother going to high school by the beneficent Sisters of Mercy;  a neighbor got me reading books and bashing a guitar, saw Dylan go electric, met my future wife. Now, living the dream. To all of us renegade kids, who when told to "sit down," we stood up, that had "No Direction Home," who are now adults  and have had a touch of a little bit of success; life is fraught with irony, and we sure showed 'em. Rage on into that good night!
