Other than spending time with my boys. Which have become my entire universe. The shows that I have been to since I started, unfortunately the only time I was able to see Jerry was 95' @ Giants stadium ( I was at other shows that I kind of remember but was only maybe 4-5) when we lived in Cali. But I really fell in love even though the scene was on the verge of collapse and Jerry was in poor health. But being able to go and have experiences that change the way that I look at the world and just being able to go and let loose and dance and lose myself in the music and forget about everything that is stressing me out is priceless. The ripple was made by the boys with their music over forty years ago and it is still going. There is nowhere else I would rather be than at a show.

That's what it was -- the X factor. It was totally there at the SBCB 7-Oct-2012. It was how I knew we were home.

Sometimes you just don't need anything else other than the music & the people to get you there.

That reminds me of one of my favorite show moments. It was at the Arlington Theater in Santa Barbara in the 80's for the Jerry Garcia Band. We were in the 3rd row on the Jerry side. There was a guy sitting next to us that was by himself. He said his friends kept telling him how great the shows were and he'd never had the experience, so he scored his ticket to see what it was all about. He was a little shy & surprised at how friendly everyone was. Anyone who knows SB knows how conservative a venue the Arlington is. I've been told to sit down many times. I always wondered why if people wanted the sit down experience why they don't just stay home & watch TV. The show was off the hook, and eventually this guy has lost all his inhibitions & is standing on his seat, ripped his T-Shirt off & is waving it in the air cheering & saying how he's never had such a good time in his life before, and a Security guy comes over to us & taps him aggressively on the should & says "Do you want to sit down, or do you want to leave?!!" The guy, still standing on his chair, stops, turns to him & thinks for a moment. Then he says very politely & a little puzzled "Neither." Everyone around him cheered & we all got up on our chairs & the Security guy looked at us, shook his head, walked away, and no one bothered us for the rest of the show. This goes in my category of one of the best answers to a stupid question of all time. I want to thank that guy for keeping it all in perspective . . .

I am not trying to be a hater but I don't get that magic at PLF or ratdog shows. Furthur is the only band I have seen post-Grateful Dead that brings that x-factor magic. I really hope the boys continue to tour.
