CoorsMikey, have I ever told you that I have some sort of strange connection with Jerry Garcia? Never was a huge Dead fan, but absolutely love some of their stuff. Years ago I went to Hempfest, and met a guy who did the most amazing pencil drawings. He was just whipping them out in no time. My wife asked if he had one of Jerry Garcia, he said no, and proceeded to draw me the most amazing picture of him from memory that was astoundingly perfect in less than 5-6 minutes. No picture to go by, nothing. It hangs over my bed and watches out for me every time I trip.
I have had 4-5 visiting dreams with him. Where I am just sitting, playing guitar, passing big fat joints back and forth and bullshitting like I knew him all my life. Very strange as I had never been a solid fan before all that. His picture hangs over my bed to this day. It was meant to be.
That same day, I came across an old dude sitting in the shade by a Tie Die shop. Amazed, I said are you Jack Herer? He laughed and nodded. I sat there with him for two hours while my wife and brother in law walked the concourse. Again I felt like I had known him all my life. We went out on the rocks, and I had some BOG Lifesaver, which was one of the most delectable strains I ever had in my life. He offered me some bud in return, and I turned it down, just happy to share with him. Later I realized what a chance I had just casually blown off, just happy to have him smoking my weed that beautiful August day. I wish to this day I had taken that fat nug lol. Lost chances, man indeed. I was humbled to sit there in the shade with him while 100,000 stoners walked by completely oblivious who that was. I got a signed copy of The Emperor Wears no Clothes that day that I will always treasure. He had his lifechanging stroke very soon after. Very damn grateful for that time. Laughed and giggled like we had known one another forever.
EDIT: took this pic as I made the post.
