The American reckoning is here.

Politics is such an ugly sport, unlike baseball. Baseball is life-sized chess with cleats.

Grateful Dead and its leader, Jerry Garcia, opted out of conventional modes and frameworks. He did not follow convention, he defied it artfully. Growing up in the Mission District of San Francisco during the Beat generation was formative, and Jerry was not going to be a square. Jerry was going to be an artist and an adventurer.

“Jerry was the Sun of the Grateful Dead — the music they played was like planets orbiting around him.” -Carlos Santana

Jerry Garcia achieved great things. He was an artist with a unique vision and a unique ability to convey his vision. He was also a hero to many, and a rock icon to many more.

Making music requires intense concentration, active listening, plus physical coordination and stamina.

Jerome Garcia grew up in The Mission District. His dad was a professional musician. You live what you learn.

You have to learn the rules before you can begin to artfully deconstruct them.

It is fashionable today to “fail harder” and to “fail faster.”
