Whatever's happening in our lives that we'd like folks here to know about.
Definitely missed seeing you at Vibes this year. Ain't no Q-School for this tour, dude. Print your own card, you're fully exempt!
I won't say something banal (like "when life gives you lemmons..."). I'm sure you already know life is a rollercoaster, going up or going down. Don't be attached to the present direction. Like the weather, wait a minute and it will change.
As the B-52s use to say: Get out of that state you're in! (Private Idaho)
Fortunately, I never left, just remained silent for awhile. It wasn't that rough, just something I didn't want to put upon all of you.
This place has always been my home (since it's inception), and you all made that possible. And as usual, what was found is just more family. The love and good vibes I've felt through any tough time, is always appreciated and welcomed.
Thanks Dead.Net fambly,
You all ROCK.
nice to see you back among us.Sorry for the tough times.
Not that's it's particularly interesting, but I feel like I've worked so hard and achieved so little this year. I'm really bummed, it's hard to deal with the so many people against you.
The best part though, and I believe the hope is: that I love my family here on Dead.Net. I got to visit some family members from old at Dead.net, and it really did my heart well. Although it was quite a long strange trip, and we didn't even make a show, the best part about it:
I finally released some pent up emotions over my last trip.
Thank you Dead.Net family, for instance you Pid, ch1na, scottishlass, mcgeeky, moye, the list is endless and of course MANY others I wish I could remember to name.and I can't thank all of you enough for how much support you've given me over the years.
During our short little trip from Ohio to Chicago to Michigan back to Ohio and Home, I wrote and created a ton of material. It was alot of emotions and things pent up inside. It was the best release I could think of as I was physically and emotionally tired from the real Grind.
I've had to deal with alot of past issues, both emotionally and mentally to even make it back alive this trip. Luckily, I had so many friends and family (((HUGZ)))) help me along the way.
Thank you all for showing me that even in my darkests of hours in a long time, you still know how to bring me out into the Light and show me that LOVE is Real!
Dead-related, but one of my favorite bars in NYC is McSorely's Old Ale House on 6th street just east of Cooper Square. Been there since 1854, and it's something to experience at least once in your life. Lots of really cool, all original crap hanging on the walls, sawdust on the floor, and they have both kinds of ale, light and dark! Order in increments of two. I have heard allegations that the Dead hung there a couple of times way back in the wayback. Not entirely implausible, as it is just down the street from where the Fillmore East used to be.
my travel schedule for work is a busy one and I get to visit some wonderful places. It seems as though everywhere I go I try to find a bar that an old Deadhead would enjoy.
And now I find myself headed to NYC this week (knowing that the Wetland Preserve is long gone).
So I would love to hear from anyone who could recommend the best bars/clubs for an old Deadhead wandering around NYC.....
Peace and Kindness
