The other day…

The other day they waited, the sky was dark and faded,

On the rail at the Greek

Solemnly they stated, “He has to die, you know he has to die.”

It was one of those moments so many have had…

All the children learnin’, from books that they were burnin’,

Eye contact with Garcia from 20 feet away…

Every leaf was turnin’, to watch him die, you know he had to die.

You knew what was coming…

The summer sun looked down on him,

Yet it was always new…

His mother could but frown on him,

I remember it as if it happened, well, is still happening…

And all the other sound on him,

Anything and everything is possible….

He had to die, you know he had to die.

Rest In Peace: Jerry Garcia

Return Message

We are back from an all to brief vacation and 4+ days completely offline…???
Yea, there was a bit of withdrawal but it was pretty easy to treat with heavy doses of conversation with relatives, long time friends and architects/builders.

I’m on the road again tomorrow and expect at most 1-2 posts before this week’s Ark starts boarding. All the boarders who did not make it on to last week’s sailing will lead off their respective categories this week in, as usual, order received. They will also get a second full line for this week’s boardings…our usual practice is one line per category per human sponsor.
