I am a relative new comer to the Dead family, having "discovered" them during college in 1988-1990. Since then, I have tried to get as many albums(cds) as possible, along with reading the band's history. Love the site, and can't wait to explore it in full.

This new site here looks really cool!! Still a lot to discover, looks like it's growing fast. So far I have not found the answer to my question why I cannot post a new topic on the forum.

"Welcome all you Deadheads, Hippies, and kind folks to this Grateful place, where Garcia fans will be Gathering! www.GratefulGarciaGathering.com
Up these steps beside me climb
To Terrapin and points sublime
Robbed of reason, faith and name
Broken-hearted blind and lame
Slain by doubt, mistaken trust
Abandoned in the rain to rust
Shriveled by the heat of day
Torn to shreds by birds of prey
Shapeless in the fire's glow
Tell me if you think you know
Who it was we were below
Where we've been and where we go
Lilies have the bees to tend them
Grasses have the breeze to bend them
Broken hearts have tears to mend them
Show us stairs, we will ascend them
Stair by stair by stair we climb
Voices hushed to sighs by time
Speak our souls in pantomime
Clear cold bells of winter chime
Pale through this ghostly haze
The dawn of a newborn moon
Illuminates this ancient maze
Of tumbled stones rough hewn
Trust your faith and enter
By paths the heart divines
The sun lies at the center
Through gates of creeping vines
how faint the rays
of former days
in avenues of time--
but it does shine
emblem of sight
pride of the eyes
that shatters shadow
and all of the dark defies
Let the sun rise!
