no need to hate to say it!

In my experience a lot of Heads are engaged in formal religion, and a lot aren't. Sharing our perrspectives (rather than beating each other over the head with them...) is one of best parts of this whole thing as far as I'm concerned. So feel free to say more.

In fact, I may start a topic...

I think you win there, coachdeadhead. What's your story? How'd you find the Dead and all that?

Retired Gym Teacher

I noticed a lot of teachers on this board, but I wonder how many have taught for thirty eight years and are now retired? And how many of them taught physical education and coached basketball--not a profession one usually associates with the Grateful Dead (except maybe Phil Jackson). And how many can say they are over 70 years in age? Well, that fits my profile. And I have loved every minute of it.

I Ponder

I ponder on my existence. I AM trying to get all the pieces of the puzzle together, whether I can do that all in this life time or not I would have to say I DON'T KNOW.

Love & Light

Auto Body and Paint Shop

I run an auto body & paint shop in west maui. I've been here for almost 6 years - it's pretty chill - my boss is gone to the mainland 1/2 the time and it's really nice to live here - i worked for a busy criminal defense atty in sf for 12 years and i quit in 2001 to move to maui - i wasn't sure what i would do here

I am pleased to see so many of us are teachers . . . i imagine that you all are the teacher the student never forgets! I will never forget my 3rd grade teacher Mr. Rhodes - he had a cool handlebar mustache and played the guitar for us while we sang songs like bad bad leroy brown :)

In addition, i am a mom which is my other full time job. My son, Jasun, will be 5 in october and keeps me on my toes- he loves to sing and dance hmm wonder where he gets that from???? Kudos to garciagirl, household CEO;)~KRISSY~

Construction

I'm a construction manager for a real estate development company in Washington DC. I manage engineers, architects, and contractors. We build office & residential buildings.

My job is long hours, hard work, high stress. It's also good pay, often working outdoors, and free coffee. My job is basically managing people. I can't do any of what my consultants do, so I have to motivate them and get them together to do it. I enjoy the people I meet...the heady architects, the stuffy attorneys, the hard-boiled contractors, and the laborers who (in my humble opinion) do the only honest work in the entire operation.

I enjoy participating in designing and building real, big things. It's art and it's science.
