The Grateful Dead has been a huge part of my life. Ever since the age of 7 , they have been the soundtrack to my life. Starting high school, I fell in love with the festival life, selling patchwork and hemp necklaces out of the back of my car. Why my parents allowed it? Yikes! They always pushed me to explore creative outlets. Camping at festivals is like no other, I’m not talking about Cochella or Bonaroo, I’m talking about real down to earth, free spirited festivals that don’t get fashion coverage.
To all you DeadHeads out there, you can tell by now I use names of Dead songs in all my collections. Fun fact: When I was in 7th grade, we had to pick one person to rule the world for art class and make art out of it. I made a globe with dancing bears around it with a tie dyed background. In the middle it said, WWJD, What Would JERRY do.
Even though Jerry isn’t around anymore, I still go to FURTHER when they play here in SF. Forever Grateful.
