I humbly thank you all for the love. What I've come to realize at this age (44) and with the emergence of Furthur these past few years, is that Dawn and I are truly and fully appreciating EVERY moment of every show soo much, that is has actually spilled over into how I treat events in my personal life now, I swear. Not that I didn't love every minute of watching Jerry make magic, and it sure was a magical journey, but I never thought something like Furthur would even exist, after Jerry. Sure Phil and friends, Ratdog, etc...are/were fun to see, but in no way does it compare to the Furthur scene for me. THIS scene takes me back to my best days of touring, thanks to us all!
But my point before was, even with my engagement on NYE...this is a 2nd marriage for both Dawn and I and we have made a conscious effort to make almost everything we do BETTER this time around...also with age you appreciate that these things will not be here forever, so it's important to me to make things even more SPECIAL. I could not pass up this opportunity to make such a great event as NYE with Furthur as mindblowingly greatl as possible, and proposing to my Sugar Mag was one of the highlights of my life! I am filled with optimism and positivity for the coming year, partly thanks to this Furthur family that has emerged, so I gladly send back these positive vibes to you all and thank you.
Let's have an even better 2012 Furthur family!
