Artist: Bob Dylan Track: "New Morning" Album: New Morning Listen

From one of Bob Dylan's most underrated albums, this track is hopeful and effervescent without any of the sardonic or subversive undertones that tempered the hope and exceitement of his earlier work. This song is Dylan at his happiest. He deserves to feel this way more often.

This is how I felt yesterday before attending the 2012 Bicentennial Citizen Summit, a townhall meeting hosted by Mayor Michael Coleman to get ideas about how to better the city before our 200th birthday. It was a good day, yesterday.
