Jerry made more than a few Ripples in the still waters of our shared cosmos

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JERRY!!!


I'm gonna try another post - just stream of consciousness (and hopefully, some unconsciousness) and see what emerges...After all, this mirrors life...it's all unfolding before us...mostly unreHEARSEed...from now til we're in the HEARSE.


"When they come to take you down When they bring that wagon around When they come to call on you And drag your poor body down Just one thing I ask of you There's just one thing for me Please forget you knew my name My darlin' Sugaree"


Sugaree - Grateful Dead - Live at Winterland (10/18/74)





Earlier this afternoon, as I went for my usual daily walk around my neighborhood, I queued up "Ripple" by Playing for Change (PFC) and it was my soundtrack...on the track of life.

Like many of PFC's tunes, there are many famous musicians lending their talent. Among the other notables in this cover are drummer Bill Kreutzmann and Jerry's daughter Keelin.


Garcia Grisman - "Friend of the Devil" on Late Show. Sept. 15, 1993


Jerry Garcia instrumental cover of Imagine with Bronx video footage - check it out!!!

Editor's note: This is the second time I was led to this video...I also think that it's no coincidence that Eileen and I and John just finished watching the movie

"Motherless Brooklyn" - Edward Norton's 2019 take on NYC's Robert Moses - called a Power Broker. According to this movie, Moses displaced a lot of poor and minority folks to build his bridges, roads and parks...his EMPIRE...


IMAGINE...no religion...no government...no greed...no selfishness...I know YOU can...so let's continue to use our music as medicine to transform this world that's in so much pain...

"Quiet down the mind the more the song will play..."


You Can't Rush Your Healing - Trevor Hall

mama well she told me time is such a wonderful gift

you're not running out

you're really running in

confusion clouds the heart but it also points the way

quiet down the mind

the more the song will play

so

you can't rush your healing

darkness has its teachings

love is never leaving

you can't rush your healing

your healing

your healing

your healing

your healing

--interestingly, in "Motherless Brooklyn cited about the Robert Moses character - Moses Randolph - cites the courage and imagination of Fredrick Law Olmstead, Central Park's designer.
