for relaxation/fun (besides hanging w/ my now 9yo son) i do a radio broadcast from east stroudsburg university (where i entered to complete BS/BA -psychology/sociology/theology - that i dropped out from in '71) which highlights the sounds and vibes of the 60's/70's with a splash of the 50's and todays sounds. the show airs fried-days 6pm - midnite (e.s.t.) locally 90.3fm (w e s s ) and on the web www.esu.edu/wess. have beenb doing the grateful dead hour for 10+ years and the show has been voted best broadcast for 11+years. move over 'for-profit radio' .. college (the real fm) radio is bringing the sounds to the people.
I do site specific installations directly inspired by the space and yup you guessed it The Grateful Dead. I was actually lucky enough to get Dennis Mcnally to visit one of my shows in NYC. It was a thrill.

I work in a small town movie store where I do nothing but sit, play videogames, and watch movies.
I teach 5th and 6th grade in San Diego, California. I have been doing this for 5 years now and it is always a challenge and is usually fun. Those kids keep me on my toes. As for the previous post from WalplolechinaCat, don't ever be ashamed of your faith. There is nothing wrong with faith:)
I help folks recover from mental illness.
peace and low stress
I work for companies that produce games-role playing, board, and card games. I LOVE it! My collegues are an international gallery of intelligent and unusual folk (not unlike Deadheads in that respect), and I really enjoy that there is creativity, art, and writing involved in producing games. I also like that the finished product helps people relate and interact with each other. The gaming community accepts new people readily-not based on their social status, posessions, or what they look like, but due to the fact that they love to game. This industry has also brought me out into the world-taken me from Chicago to Atlanta to Germany to France, and next to Spain.
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...
