Happy Birthday, Jackson Browne and John Lennon

October 9th is a day of birth on many levels. In the U.S., today marks Columbus' discovery of the New World. Five centuries hence, it also commemorates the day two extraordinary troubadours arrived in 3D: John Lennon was born October 9, 1940, and would be 66 today were he still embodied. And Jackson Browne, who was my muse thirty years ago and is still a poetic prophet for our times, turns 58 today.

Let freedom—and the music—ring!
