Walt Whitman-Song of Myself
Having gone to a half dozen 'Big Shows' up until this day, I
and my buds thought it was kinduva cool insider's deal...
young and hopeful, thought maybe the world really would
turn upside down...FREE music in The Park was big fun, &
seemingly OUR thing ( 'our' being a not-so-small Circle of
Friends)-hundreds/maybe thousands, but still, a small and
very hip deal. At first, walking much Further than past music-
in-The-Park mornings required, we were amazed/elated that
there were SO DAMN MANY of 'us' ! As the day wore on,
we realized that it wasn't a 'small circle' anymore. The World
had found our little party and more would be coming every week-END ? Yeah, the beginning of the end...or so we thunk.
Grateful Dead Live at Polo Field, Golden Gate Park on 1967-01-14 - Grateful Dead
Morning Dew, Viola Lee Blues, Good Morning Little School Girl
This was another of those defining moments for me.15 years old...hitch-hiking around the Bay to all of these places where like-minded heads would be. To think that the elders (Leary, Ginsberg and Alpert,)there would lead us so far into the other possibilities for humanity. Truly blessed to be there.
