Here's a place to talk about the words that really grabbed you. That remain a touchstone of your life to this day. That are especially meaningful to you. Etc.
Its later Jerry but i love the line " dont waist your breathe to save your face when you have done your best"
He once said... "The music doesn't come from me, it comes through me
I used to drive my friend crazy by blurting out some Grateful Dead lyrics that fit the moment. Of course friend was not a deadhead so just looked at me confused until I said its a GD song. It is grate fun to do this with someone who knows what you are talking about....what I want to know is are you kind!
I was talking to a girlfriend I hadn't seen in 2 years and she was telling me the story of how she finally got clean. The person who ended up being the one to help her was a 20 year old kid who spent his whole life on the street, hustling on his bike, and didn't really have anything. He was given some money for Christmas and spent it on helping her. She said of all her big money family she found it odd that he was the one with the least to give whom helped her the most.
At which time I could not help but say mama it's true and started singing "Once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right..."
We both laughed and smiled and thanked the Dead for all their inspiration.
what do you want me to do for you, to watch for you while you are sleeping....
once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right...
I have so many that have impacted me,
today I would say the entire song Black Throated Wind has had the most profound impact on me.

Happy Birthday! and hello B.D.
I would just say "Thanks!". I became a DH in 1985. I had been introduced to the music by college friends in 1980, but I didn't get my ticket to the bus until my first show. It was a life altering event for me. I finally felt at home. The family and esp. the music has been my rock through more hard times and wonderful times than I can recall for you here. I hope that you find the kind of solice and peace that I have been granted by the Grace of the Universe and the Grateful Dead.
Peace- Love and Scarlett Begonias- Christie
For me " Crippled but free. I was blind all the time I was learning to see." that "bout says it all.
