Sounds like a Bob Dylan lyric in there somewhere! In terms of stirring the creative juices I've probably been more influenced by music than literature. Almost finished reading John Berger's recent "Hold everything dear: Despatches on survival and resistance". Nothing like an unapologetic, 80-year old Marxist to make me contemplate what is really dear to me?
