I recently came across an old essay I wrote for the Summer, 1995 issue of Green Egg Magazine, the publication of the Church of All Worlds, with which I had a relationship at the time. I decided to post it on my Open Salon blog, here:
Hope you enjoy it.
P.S., It so happened that just as I was about to submit it, Jerry died (still hurts to think about); so I added the epilog.
P.P.S., I hope this is the proper place to put this, it's not really clear...
put it in the Deadheads, Religion and Spirituality thread, if you wanted...
i'm listening to he's gone right now, so i had to post in this thread
Without knowing where this is I would have to guess somewhere in Indiana, Ohio, Kansas, Nebraska, Illisnois -- somewhere on the Great Plains anyway...
It is a great picture. The rainbow is as clearly and sharply defined as I have ever seen it. And then there is the quality of light on one side and dark on the other. one has to wonder if there was a tornado in the area.
I would like to know what kind of camera took this picture and at what settings. Thank you for posting WharfRat3323, indeed I am smiling on a cloudy day!
Saw the Grateful Dead movie tonight, it was awesome :) I love you Jerrrrryyyyyy!!!!! <3
i am ripping a 3 disc Dead show 6-18-03 from the Merriweather post pavilion from cd on to my dell inspiron. the first disc went on fine but when i put disc 2 or 3 in the computer thinks they are the same disc. i give the discs different names and name all the tracks and it still dos not make a difference. if some one could help a young deadhead out it would be "grately" appreciated.
you might have better luck if you asked that question in the Technical Discussions thread, http://dead.net/forum/technical-discussions
what an unexpectedly fantastic weekend i had! nowhere to go and all weekend to get there. we've had less than 2" of rain since mid-may and now........ 5" in less than 48 hrs. stayed home with lots of great jg/ms and gogd and watched it rain all weekend; even made a new friend too! :))))). so nice just to watch it rain and rain and rain. did i mention that i made a new friend? and something great has come out of the ruthless, extreme drought this summer: intense fall colors. the maples are magnificent and the oak leaves which normally turn a disappointing dull brown are putting on a long lasting show of vivid maroon, yellow, orange and copper ----- it's times like this i truly feel spoiled.
it's too late (she's gone) > he's gone > they're gone > we're all gone........ missed jam opportunity? ...........( had time to think this weekend). :D
wishing you all a terrific weekend too !!!!!
deadhead smile....... :)
1. rosie mcgee's "dancing with the dead" e-book is affordable and is simply an outstanding read if you haven't yet. it would make a fine addition to anyone's hard drive and is worth the price just for the pics alone.
2. key-z productions sells affordable and beautiful full sheets of original perforated blotter art. i recently purchased one (code # lsd-25) that has the entire declaration of independence printed on it.......... just beautiful and says it all. tons of cool designs to pick from. unfortunately, these are NOT saturated so they are completely legal (damn!)....... yet beautiful; not to mention it helps the kesey family business.
3. and my personal favorite!!! ........get your sweety-pie a GIANT bag of weed. :) -- yeah, this one's more expensive but i'll bet there will be a lot of sharing goin' on just out of appreciation that santa was sooooooooo kind.... :)))))))))))))) -- great stocking-stuffer! :D
happy holihaze everybody! :)
