“Ain’t it just like the night to play tricks when you’re tryin’ to be so quiet?”
- Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan - The Times They Are A-Changin
I watched a show on the Science Channel yesterday which described the Second Law of Thermodynamics as the universe moving from order to chaos. I took this to mean that it is natural that things change and will always be in a state of change. Pragmatically, this means that trying to stop change from happening is futile, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t have some affect on the direction of that change.
I’m pretty sure Bob Dylan knew this when he wrote this song.
And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s still in spin

“Establishing yourself, furnishing a house, building up a comfortable existence, and having that menace hanging over your head all the time - no, I prefer to live in hotels, cafés, just passing through.”
— Alberto Giacometti
“Some people walk in the rain. Others just get wet.”
— Bob Dylan
