And if my thought-dreams could be seen, they’d probably put my head in a guillotine. But it’s alright, Ma, it’s life, and life only. – The last few lines of Dylan’s song “It’s alright Ma (I’m only bleeding)“. The “Easy Rider” version of the song by Roger McGuinn is probably better known than Dylan’s own. It’s one of the most amazing songs ever. How did he came up with the lyrics? How did he manage to remember them? They go on and on and on in a stream-of-conscience-like rap rhythm. Listen to it (the lyrics are on youtube below the song:)!

Music is like smells – it works like a time machine, it instantaneously transports me into another world.

Just heard about this amazing concert taking place in the Californian Desert during our #GreatAmericanCycle.


Unfortunately, we won’t be able to go there, but the music of all these great musicians will be in our ears and in our minds when we’ll cycle up one of the most iconic routes in the world to raise visibility and funding for An Saol.

We asked Pádraig and he’s sad that the time here is over – but, at the same time, he’s looking forward to being back at home! We told him that we’ll back here soon, that he’ll continue to get better, that we would continue to travel, listen to music, weird and wonderful, chilled out, out of this world, never the same, never standing still. Dreamboaters.

Finally, here is another one: White Room, with the best way-wah guitar solos ever…

In the white room with black curtains near the station.
Black-roof country, no gold pavements, tired starlings.
Silver horses run down moonbeams in your dark eyes.
Dawn-light smiles on you leaving, my contentment.

How did they come up with this stuff??
