World peace must develop from inner peace. Peace is not just mere absence of violence. Peace is, I think, the manifestation of human compassion.

I went to my first show [of the Grateful Dead], got right up front and never left. The incredible excitement, the family, the spirit, the hope, the happiness, all the different things I love and live for in life are there. The joy, the optimism, the teamwork, the experimentation, the exploration, the curiosity. No band has inspired more artwork, no band has inspired more books. No band has ever inspired a more loyal following and I'm involved in all of that stuff.

Well, the oppressors are trying to keep me down
Trying to drive me underground
And they think that they have got the battle won
I say forgive them Lord, they know not what they've done

'Cause, as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share now, what's mine
And then the harder they come
The harder they fall, one and all
Ooh, the harder they come
Harder they fall, one and all

And I keep on fighting for the things I want
Though I know that when you're dead you can't
But I'd rather be a free man in my grave
Than living as a puppet or a slave
Live by the mushroom, die by the mushroom
Roll on forever

The best way to get to know any bunch of people is to go and listen to their music.

Insanity is a legal term. Crazy is an art form.

From Trixie:
Inclusivity is the foundation that the Grateful Dead community is built on. All deadheads must stand up to racism as part of the ethos of the scene. Growing up Garcia isn’t just a fun rock and roll story, we’ve also experienced racism and discrimination because of that name. Stand in solidarity with the oppressed, fight for social justice. ❤️

I think music is the greatest art form that exists, and I think people listen to music for different reasons, and it serves different purposes. Some of it is background music, and some of it is things that might affect a person's day, if not their life, or change an attitude. The best songs are the ones that make you feel something.

Just a song of Gomorrah
I wonder what they did there
Must've been a bad thing
To get shot down for

Wonder how they blew it up
Or if they burned it down
Get out, get out, Mr. Lot
Don't you look around

Who gave you your orders?
Someone from the sky
I heard a voice inside my head
In the desert wind so dry

I heard a voice telling me to flee
The very same voice I always believe
Said, a lot of trouble's coming
But it don't have to come to you
I'm telling you, so you can tell
The rest what you been through

Don't you turn around, no
Don't look after you
It's not your business how it's done
You're lucky to get through

You're a good upstanding man
A credit to the flock
If you don't face straight ahead
You could not take the shock

Blew the city off the map
Left nothing there but fire
The wife of Lot got turned to salt
Because she looked behind her
Live by the mushroom, die by the mushroom
Roll on forever
