 Concerts Update

It's confirmed now, Dan Bern is performing in Ottawa Blues Fest on July 12th. A bit hard to get there in the middle of the week, but I'll try.

Although I missed the David Gilmour concert back in March, I was lucky enough to find two not-so-expensive tickets for Roger Waters on September 20 in Toronto. I attedned a Waters concert in 2002 where thousands of Iranian including me flew over from Tehran to Dubai to attend (photos). It's nice to be to one again.

Given the ticket I've reserved for GUADEC leaves me some time after the conference, I may even catch a Bob Dylan in concert in Germany. Talking about Bob, he turned 65 on Wednesday. Happy Birthday Bob!

by Bob Dylan

I laid on a dune, I looked at the sky,
When the children were babies and played on the beach.
You came up behind me, I saw you go by,
You were always so close and still within reach.

Sara, Sara,
Whatever made you want to change your mind?
Sara, Sara,
So easy to look at, so hard to define.

I can still see them playin' with their pails in the sand,
They run to the water their buckets to fill.
I can still see the shells fallin' out of their hands
As they follow each other back up the hill.

Sara, Sara,
Sweet virgin angel, sweet love of my life,
Sara, Sara,
Radiant jewel, mystical wife.

Sleepin' in the woods by a fire in the night,
Drinkin' white rum in a Portugal bar,
Them playin' leapfrog and hearin' about Snow White,
You in the marketplace in Savanna-la-Mar.

Sara, Sara,
It's all so clear, I could never forget,
Sara, Sara,
Lovin' you is the one thing I'll never regret.

I can still hear the sounds of those Methodist bells,
I'd taken the cure and had just gotten through,
Stayin' up for days in the Chelsea Hotel,
Writin' "Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands" for you.

Sara, Sara,
Wherever we travel we're never apart.
Sara, oh Sara,
Beautiful lady, so dear to my heart.

How did I meet you? I don't know.
A messenger sent me in a tropical storm.
You were there in the winter, moonlight on the snow
And on Lily Pond Lane when the weather was warm.

Sara, oh Sara,
Scorpio Sphinx in a calico dress,
Sara, Sara,
You must forgive me my unworthiness.

Now the beach is deserted except for some kelp
And a piece of an old ship that lies on the shore.
You always responded when I needed your help,
You gimme a map and a key to your door.

Sara, oh Sara,
Glamorous nymph with an arrow and bow,
Sara, oh Sara,
Don't ever leave me, don't ever go.

I just came across your blog and it's funny I should find the pictures of two of my friends in your Dubai concert pics (Siamack and Hooman). I heard so much about that concert, I think I'll remember it for life. Good luck with Bob Dylan's concert, it's a great opportunity, who knows how much longer he lives.
don't see bob dylan. he will disappoint you in concert. i've seen him, and i've been VERY disappointed. i'm telling you, country music is the way to go.
