    and seeing the New Riders was excellent too.

    However, in the early 70s we drove to Dallas and got there 4 hours early.

    The doors were open and the concert hall seemed deserted, so we wandered in and sat in the front row seats.

    Jerry Garcia came out alone, sat down, tuned his guitar, looked right us from 20 feet away, and played a solo from St, Stephens for 10 minutes until the roadies came over and kicked us out.

    “The answer must be, I think, that beauty and grace are performed whether or not we will or sense them. The least we can do is try to be there.” ― Annie Dillard, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek
