Grateful

Happy birthday Jerry Garcia, farewell Robbie
118

I wrote this song in Michigan when Jerry Garcia died. The common wire, the silver thread is a loving nod to his hair. I am sending this message from the ocean. So I have gone from the desert to the ocean in one long day.

Jerry Garcia by David Gahr

Hoping all is well. I am waving to all by the sea. My condolences to the family and loved ones of the late Robbie Robertson. He was a great worker and a gentleman.
