I sketched my hero, the transcendent Paul Simon, a writer whose lyrics enter through the heart and remain in the brain. Thank you, sir, for all the music and the otherworldly journeys they provide. In the song “Boy in the Bubble,” Paul Simon wrote: “These are the days of miracles and wonder.” He is both.
Today, October 13, 2017, he turns 76. Happy birthday, Paul, and keep having them.
