Keep on writing!
I live in Miami and write also-- mostly screenplays (I am a dreamer)
I am an insurance agent working with mostly small family owned construction companies-it's been tough many of my customers/friends are really hurting. I love what I do My checking account is my boss I work as much or as little as I need to and the people I work with are fantastic. They find me being a Deadhead amusing. I will run into some construction execs who admit to seeing them. There is one old guy (I'm guesing late 60's) who is semiretired that claims he saw them all of the time in the Avalon Ballroom along with the Jeffferson Airplane before Grace Slick.

And the road goes on forever....

I'm a freelance writer...

...and I finally got to write a story on the Dead! It's about our trip from Florida to see the Dead in Denver earlier in the month and lessons learned along the way. The editor of a local paper here in southwest Florida agreed to publish it on their site. Talk about mixing business with pleasure!

Anyway, it's titled "Lessons from the Golden Road." Here's a link:

I'm hoping to get some more gigs with them, so good, bad or indifferent, if you check it out please leave a comment at the end.

Thanks: Grateful for the gig in Florida...

And quiet all the few words that you say
So come and hold my hand for you see I'd understand
And remember that the only time is now.."

Thank you for calling....

I answer phones for the PBS station here... and between this and the last job I had, I haven't worked for a for-profit company in over a decade. No wonder I'm poor. But happy, so it is a fair trade.

Ummm...I'm a barber, LOL

Actually, that's how I make money. What I really do for a living is ride my motorcycle and listen to the Dead.

Night Owl

Well, after searching for years for a job I can actually feel good about, I went to school and became a nurse. I am now working nights as a charge nurse in a long term care center. I never wanted to quit my job touring, but having a child 14 years ago pretty much put a stop to that. In the same year, my daughter was born and Jerry was gone. Luckily she was wble to make it to a few shows in her stroller!

I'm a laborer with a contractor who specializes in ponds and pondless "water features", such as waterfalls and streams and things for backyards mostly. It pays the bills and here in california unemployment is quite high and I'm just thankful to have a job. I love being outdoors and I rarely miss a sunrise. It's also fun taking on a different a different task each day even if I am moving several cubic yards of dirt or lifting heavy rocks. I'm living proof that we "hippies" aint lazy!
