While this is partly true, I know only too well, that the architect...

DYLAN AND ME IN ‘62

DYLAN AND ME IN ‘62 As early as 1962, the year my pioneering and travelling for the Canadian Bahá’í community began, Bob Dylan was reflecting on the theme of the rejected prophet. He wrote: “To preach of peace and brotherhood, / Oh, what might be the cost! / A man he did it long ago / And they hung ...
