Shine on, you crazy DiamondS...

Joel,


YOU…are the inspiration for this birthday song/gift…


I simply joined the opening lines of your email’s invitation...


“Hi you fellow crazy friend whom i love and miss,”…


...to your last name…Diamond


...and added the “S” - so Doris can continue to join you on life’s ongoing dance floor adventures…





You and others had a CRAZY dream about bringing people together...






Most of the song’s lyrical images don't pertain to you…so, just enjoy the repeating refrain:

"Shine on, you crazy diamond..."


That said, some of the words DO apply to you:

--you legend

--you seer of visions (what COULD BE)

--you piper (as you gather people around the vision)

--you winner

--you miner for truth

A Jew and an Irishman walk into the Parthenon...




[from the description] On a summer day in 1989, Van Morrison and Bob Dylan met up in Greece and brought their acoustic guitars to the place in Athens where the ancients believed the muses lived. Philopappos Hill, traditionally known as the Hill of the Muses, rises high above the Athens Basin and has a commanding view of the Acropolis.











PARTYZONE...


Remember, in his email, Joel asked us not to mob their home...and to make an appointment to see them during visiting hours...





Long Island's own crooner has joined the party...






JOEL, You're traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That's the signpost up ahead—your next stop, the 80's Zone!
