Not too tired to enjoy this moment

We're all tired. No, check that: We're all EXHAUSTED.
I slept four hours overnight and Jill and the girls stayed up until past dawn -- all because of last night's RELAY FOR LIFE fundraising event. Jill served as the chairwoman for the annual AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY event, so we were all busy.

I spent today (when I wasn't sleeping), listening to the live BOB DYLAN album from 1964 (part of the bootleg series reissue series). Chronicling the Halloween concert at New York's Philharmonic Hall, this double-disc set also includes what might be my favorite Dylan moment.

"This is called, 'A Sacrilegious Lullaby in D Minor,'" Dylan announces before launching only the second public performance of "GATES OF EDEN."

The audience, expecting the familiar protest singer Dylan, instead experience Dylan reaching beyond the topical. The audience sits completely silent -- hopefully more in rapt attention than dumbfounded shock.

British singer-songwriter Marc Carroll once called "Gates of Eden" a song "so powerful it's actually unsettling."

I imagine some in the crowd that night in 1964 were unsettled indeed by this new Dylan.

I love that moment.
