'tis then when the hurdy gurdy man comes singing songs of love

I love these trippy-dippy, hurdy-gurdy photos of Donovan. The girl on the right is Jenny Boyd (Pattie's sister), who Donovan was in love with for a time in the late 1960s. He wrote "Jennifer Juniper" for her, and she was one of the main reasons why he decided to join the Beatles in Rishikesh in 1968.

Dear womenofthebeatles,

I adore Donovan so so much - glad to know someone else in the blogosphere who loves Hurdy Gurdy man and Jennifer Juniper.

Also - could I become a woman of the Beatles? Or maybe a woman of the women of the Beatles. My plan is to marry Paul McCartney ... it could happen...

Dear Gloria,

If you ever finish Donovan's autobiography, could you let me know how it is? He's had such an interesting life - I'd love to hear his take on Gypsy Dave, Bob Dylan, the Maharishi, and everyone...
Also, you just HAVE to get Pattie's book - it's not as witty as Marianne Faithfull's book nor as heartwrenchingly tender as Cyn Lennon's book, but if you like Pattie or have an interest in the 60s and 70s, Pattie is a great go-to gal. For a particular thrill, you can listen to her audiobook version of Wonderful Tonight. If it wasn't enough to read her own words, you can now listen to her own voice!
