Get involved in voting...and despite what some adults might tell have choices:

VOTE: - Let our voices be heard

--Bob Weir is a national spokesperson. Headcount volunteers set up stations at shows and concerts where they encourage folks to register to vote.


Another area where you'll be asked to choose is spirituality...don't settle for religion...despite it's Latin root ("re-ligio" - to join together)...most are simply saying "Hooray for OUR side" or "My way or the highway"

YES, the Grateful Dead are a KULT…

Yes, "Weir" a cult…a KULTure of KINDness…

Mindful Self Care: Tye Die...Tai Chi...

Tai Chi, Green Building and The Grateful Dead: A Sustainable Golden Braid

--Coincidentally, three of the greatest loves of my life, Tai Chi, Green Building and The Grateful Dead all embody elements of Integration, Synergy and Collaboration. It is through doing Tai Chi, practicing green building and playing Grateful Dead Music, that I weave my thread. And it will be so inspiring to hear how others are doing their weaving and how we can assist one another in this most important personal and collective mission of Sustainable Living, referred to here as The Golden Braid. As it is written in the Dead Song, Terrapin Station:

"I can't figure out

if it's the end or beginning,

but the Train's put its breaks on

and the whistle is screaming."
