The good times. The bad times. The changin’ times.

It’s no surprise the late Steve Jobs’ favorite music was written and performed by Bob Dylan and The Beatles. I just finished his biography and it was as compelling a book as Atlas Shrugged.

Anyway, about three months ago I started a column about the 1964 Bob Dylan song, “The times they are a-changin.’” An anthem for those, times and these times. Bob Dylan can write his soul – and touch yours. The times are changing. But for one reason or another I set the column aside.

As I was reading the Walter Isaacson Steve Jobs biography (a book I could NOT put down), I got goosebumps when Jobs got fired from Apple after a decade of it being his creation and child. Devastated, he went home and played the second verse of “The times they are a-changin’” over and over:

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won’t come again
And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s still in spin
And there’s no tellin’ who
That it’s namin’
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin’.
