Dreaming of Dylan: dream a little dream of him

Hello dear Fans, Friends, Familiars, Foreigners, Futurists, Fatalists and Funlovers:

I just love a little alliteration, or a lot.

Is it fall yet? Well, it’s trying. I sometimes prefer the word “autumn”. It reminds me of old songs. And then there’s “autumnal”. What a great word. Go ahead, say it out loud. I’ll wait.… There, doesn’t it feel good?

I go on a bit because it’s my favorite season. It’s taking its time this year, but that feeling of reinvigoration when the morning air starts to take on a…

The bench that keeps on giving!

Hello my friends!

Can there still be more Beulah? Yes! In fact, we might just be getting started. That was a mighty deep bench!

THANK YOU!!!

Bon weekend wherever you are.

Love,

MLK

It’s also the beginning of what I intend to be a long and fruitful Beulah season, not tied to any calendar anywhere. For those of you who’ve known me for a while, you’re well aware of my Beulah Rowley project. The album has just been completed—produced by Hal Willner—and it’s her time to shine. It’s not commercially available yet, but for you, my fans, friends and family, it’s available…
