just a touch

"every silver lining has a touch of gray." i guess cuz i first heard it when i was in a homeless shelter at age 18. i was pretty down and depressed and lonely. my friend that i talked to on facebook sent me a link to touch of gray, and i remember smiling and saying "this is how i feel and have felt for years, but its so upbeat, and hopeful." so then i went and became obsessed with the dead officially. the song still means as much to me now, and helped me do away with alot of my anger and just to let things roll man.

So many of my favorites have

So many of my favorites have already been listed and I'm sure that these are somewhere in the fray as well, but here they are again:

Inspiration, move me brightly
Light the song with sense of colour
Hold away despair
More than this I will not ask
Faced with mysteries dark and vast
Statements just seem vain at last

Crazy Fingers

"Your rain falls like crazy fingers" (your fingers fall like crazy rain)
"Peels of fragile thunder keeping time"

"Beneath the sweet, calm face of the sea, swift undertow"

Hunter is delving into the unconscious, quivering rhythms that unite us.
The Grateful Dead took special care of our precious commodity--music. They served it to us on a velvet pillow, caressing every nerve with their masterful explorations.

GD Songs that changed my life.

Three Dead songs really touched and changed my life. Box of Rain, Standing on the Moon and China Doll,{I am a doll collector} so it really makes me happy to hear that song.

Post Card to the Grateful Dead

"There is a road, no simple highway,
Between the dawn and the dark of night,
And if you go no one may follow,
That path is for your steps alone."

Hello friends!
I am new to the website, and this might be out of line but I am looking for your help.
I am studying architecture, and my recent assignment was designing a post card that would describe home... This touched me at a profoundly emotional level, since I feel that I am very much "in between places": I was born and raised in Eastern Europe, but I haven't been there in about 7 years; I lived in Maryland with my husband for about 5 years, and we moved together to New England 2 years ago. We separated 6 months after the move, and I now have a roomate situation, while pursuing my degree...
The past couple of years have been tumoltuous, and therefore I feel that I do not have a home... except for the music of the Grateful Dead. I was not born in a time or place that allowed me to ever see a true Grateful Dead show, but the spirit, the acceptance and the love I feel while listening to their music has trully given me the support of a family.
Going to festivals and shows, meeting beautiful people and most of all beeing touched by the music have been life changing events.I regain direction and hope in life and mankind. So when it came to designing a post card describing home, I though of the Grateful Dead.
This is where I need your help. If you were to write a post card to the GD, what would you say?
Thank you for taking the time of reading my lenghty post, and I am looking forward to hear what you would say.

Comes A Time

From day to day, just lettin' it ride
You get so far away from how it feels inside.
You can't let go, 'cuz you're afraid to fall
But the day may come when you can't feel at all.

Comes a time, when the blind man
Takes your hand, and says, Don't you see?
Gotta make it somehow on the dreams you still believe.
Don't give it up - you've got an empty cup
Only love can fill.
Only love can fill.

Gets me every time I hear it.
