Eat Well. Do Good. Be Kind.

The Heart Has Its Seasons…

As another Summer winds down, and we start heading home from tours and trips, it’s time to think about serving up some good food that nourishes us, body and soul.

Luckily, the Kind Veggie Burritos Cookbook is guaranteed to be your most unique, trusty friend in the kitchen, as you gather in the bounty of the harvest season.

I cooked up this idea after those Spring 1991 Greensboro shows, when I was searching for something soul-satisfying to eat. It took four years of work (and very delicious research!) before I finally launched my self-published book in the lot at those sweet 1995 Charlotte shows.

And yeah, I have to say — the Kind Veggie Burritos Cookbook was an instant hit.Charlotte Ticket

Thanks to YOU, the Kind Veggie Burritos Cookbook of today has lots more recipes than that first slender little booklet, and has found happy homes in kitchens and tour packs around the world.

And for all these years, every copy has given a helping hand to both the Rex and the SEVA Foundations!

With over 120 recipes, from super simple, to beautifully elegant, the Kind Veggie Burritos Cookbook is where you’ll find all your favorites for touring, camping, and home cooking.

 And while these yummy dishes bring good vibes for you and your family, you are also supporting two important foundations for people in need.

Now in its 21st year, I have continued to donate all proceeds from your purchase (after expenses) to the Dead’s Rex Foundation and to SEVA, Compassion in Action.

Made one by one and shipped by mail-order with love, Kind Veggie Burritos serves up real comfort food – tasty dishes that will nourish you, and bring good lovin’ to people that need your help!

And did I mention?  All proceeds go to the Rex Foundation and SEVA.

SEVA is the non-profit foundation for compassionate social action, that brings medical assistance to people around the world, and is headed by good people like Ram Dass and Wavy Gravy.

The The Rex Foundation is the Grateful Dead’s own charitable foundation. It supports the arts and honors the spirit of community, service and creativity.

Remembering Jerry Today…

There were days, and there were days
And there were days between
Summer flies and August dies
The world grows dark and mean
Comes the shimmer of the moon
On black infested trees
The singing man is at his song
The holy on their knees
The reckless are out wrecking
The timid plead their pleas
No one knows much more of this
Than anyone can see
Anyone can see

There were days, and there were days
And there were days besides
When phantom ships with phantom sails
Set to sea on phantom tides
Comes the lightning of the sun
On bright unfocused eyes
The blue of yet another day
A springtime wet with sighs
A hopeful candle lingers
In the land of lullabies
Where headless horsemen vanish
With wild and lonely cries
Lonely cries

There were days, and there were days
And there were days I know
When all we ever wanted
Was to learn and love and grow
Once we grew into our shoes
We told them where to go
Walked halfway around the world
On promise of the glow
Stood upon a mountain top
Walked barefoot in the snow
Gave the best we had to give
How much we’ll never know
We’ll never know

There were days, and there were days
And there were days between
Polished like a golden bowl
The finest ever seen
Hearts of Summer held in trust
Still tender young and green
Left on shelves collecting dust
Not knowing what they mean
Valentines of flesh and blood
As soft as velveteen
Hoping love would not forsake
The days that lie between
Lie between….

Still missing you. Rest easy, Jerry.  And thank you.
