Dylan’s Birthdate 27.10.1914 adds up to Life Path: 25/7
Meaning: Seeks answers. Introspective. Intuitive. Philosophical. Mystical.
Dylan was strongly intuitive and had prophetic dreams. What others saw in him as intuition was a developed talent of observation and attention to details. He had an alert, energetic mind which always sought new enterprises, ideas and locations. A pioneering spirit and quest for knowledge, brought out the fiery missionary zeal within him. He was a spiritual crusader.
Because solitude is necessary for analysis, he would have felt the need to spend time alone, away from the crowds and in touch with nature.
… And of course poets and writers are all reclusive people. We are all writing to escape, just as readers, are reading to escape. It’s an addiction, its dreadful. We don’t consciously create a poetic style, but there is certain degree of concentration and there’s an element of consciousness, but not self-consciousness and an element of instinct. Inspiration often comes as an unexpected thing. The real beauty is when you are taken somewhere where you weren’t expecting to go.
THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL
I believe the gist of ‘Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night’ is that we should want to get as much living done as we can while we can—that we wring it of every flicker of light before that light dies. What an ingenious use of words.
‘I’ve just had eighteen straight whiskies. I think that’s the record’ ~ Dylan Thomas
“Poetry is what in a poem makes you laugh, cry, prickle, be silent, makes your toenails twinkle, makes you want to do this or that or nothing, makes you know that you are alone and not alone in the unknown world, that your bliss and suffering is forever shared and forever all your own. All that matters about poetry is the enjoyment of it however tragic it may be all that matters is the eternal movement behind it – the great undercurrent of human grief, folly, pretension, exaltation and ignorance – however unlofty the intention of the poem…” – Dylan Thomas
He lives in the hearts of many even today.
