Hibernation update

Got an extension until Thanksgiving on The Reawakened, and I'm chugging along on that. I promise that this time next year you'll be reading it thinking, "Wow, I'm so glad she spent the lifespan of a piece of German paper writing this book instead of blogging."

But I thought I'd pop in to celebrate the beginning of the six-month countdown to Wicked Game (pre-order now and save 5%!) by spreading the news about a symposium at U Mass Amherst this weekend. Unbroken Chain: Grateful Dead and American Culture will be more than "a bunch of people sitting around talking about favorite concert memories," according to this Associated Press article. Insert easy joke here.

I'll try to keep popping in with brief posts here and there over the next few weeks. But right now, gotta get back to War and Peace--I mean, The Reawakened.

Hi, I love how you are running this blog. I just started a blog of my own and I was wondering if you would like to do a link exchange with my site. My site can be found at:


If you want to do this, just leave a comment on my site, on any post, and I’ll link you later that night.

As an Deadhead since 1968, or there abouts, I'd LOVE to go to UMass this weekend. Can't do it, but I'll be sending them ---- and you---Good Lovin'.


PS If any of you have never heard the song "Unbroken Chain," give a listen. It's beautiful and moving, one of the Dead's best, and there are so many.

Windy was fun. Spent most of my time around the art show. Jody Lee, the AGOH, asked me if I ever thought of myself as a dwarf and asked me to model for her as she sketched. I ended up as a 17th Century cavalier.

Now I can add male madel to my resume. I must admit, I miss your hubby as an auctioneer. He always put on a good show.
