An Open Letter to Jamey Carroll

Dear Jamey,

I think you’re pretty much the most awesome person ever for choosing “All Along the Watchtower” as your walk up song. In fact, I think it’s so awesome that I would marry you.

You or the guy who understood why I think that’s so cool.

Whichever of you asks first.

Just saying.

Sincerely,

Jana

Super 100

I logged in this morning to see that the 100th person had read the “About my Blog” section on this blog. I find it amusing, comforting, and interesting that there are so many people who are interested in the song “All Along the Watchtower.” I certainly understand why it is the case because it is a particularly entrancing song.

In honor of the 100th person who read my reflection on the song, I’m going to add one more verse today:

Outside in the cold distance
A wild cat did growl
Two riders were approaching
And the wind began to howl

I didn’t initially include this in my reflection because my tie to this portion is different from the rest of the song. I think it simply paints a vivid picture. This is the part where I feel like the music starts to swirl. The guitar accomplishes both the wild cat’s growl and the wind’s howl.

And just when you’re caught up in this swirl of music and words, it suddenly stops. It slows down and just as quickly as it started, it’s over.

Thanks for reading! And Happy Friday!
