I am a public school principal.
My love, nay, adoration, of what the Dead experience gave to me is a full fledged part of my daily interactions with kids, parents, teachers and fellow administrators. I enjoy the ride, never take myself too seriously, look for the best in the worst, make light out iof dark and try to be a prankster whwnever I can. Kids are usually a bit freaked out by my genuine joy that I try to bring every day and they always get a chuckle when they come to my office and I have my i-tunes playing in the background.
I love the opportunty to show kids that open mindedness is important and that every body brings a little something to the party and that, my friends, is what makes the gig so much fun!!!
Whenever kids ask me to signe their yearbooks I always write the same thing, a quote from Hunter Thompson:
"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro!"
Have a wonderful day!
I had no idea I'd run into you here--but no real surprise I guess, being dead.net and all...
I'm still in Idyllwild, not too far from you. I did a just over a year at the newspaper in Palm Springs, then landed this gig which allows me to telecommute--sure beats all that driving and heat!
Did you make the Rat Dog show on 6/28? at Fantasy Springs Casino near Palm Springs?
goddessj - whoa! I had to check your bio to see if you were who I hoped you were.
HI!!! lovely to read from you!
and chris - how incredibly cool for you. where is your film school??
I'm working from home this week - this living in San Diego and southwestern Colorado at the same time is pretty taxing stuff, but man, I love it. I'm still doing environmental management for the US Navy, which often looks like interpreting environmental policy and regulations.
Most definetly enough talent and spirit and most importantly soul in the people here on this site to lead the planet. What a great group.
I am very lucky as i get to make art pottery every day. I am a potter at an arts and craft studio and have been able to make pots since i was 13, 36 years ago. Proud of you all.pk
Welcome! make yourself at home...
Izzie and Marve--how totally kewl to find you and so many others here...
I've been flying under the radar for the last couple of years, and when the old site went down, I was off doing other things.
I'm a writer and photographer, most recently for a very small company called BlissLights.
I am a licensed counselor specializing in addiction treatment. I have my own approach that is affirming and positive-focused. My love of the Grateful Dead raises some eyebrows among my peers at times, but it is all about the love and the music for me.
I got a chuckle about the part where ya poke holes in their bags! LOL Keep spreading the good vibes Chris!
Man, that sounds wonderful! Congrats to you & your family. Can't wait to see some Dead Head Talent down the road...

No matter what comes down, the mission always looks the same
