Last leaf fallen, bare earth where green was born 

No, no – the last leaf has yet to fall… These are simply evocative lyrics from one of my all-time fave albums, the Grateful Dead’s ANTHEM OF THE SUN. The song features the lyrics of enigmatic collaborator Bobby Petersen, who I’ve hardly heard boo about despite a 2 decade long interest in all things Gratefully Departed.

This installment – a LEAF if you will in the cyber-tome that is MY MySpace – is only the briefest of indications that this LEAF on ASHERA’S TREE – tho’ it may occur at any moment – is not fallen, nor will SHe stop lifting and turning Sunwards so long as breath moves across this Earth, the Body of my Beloved.

Behind me ABRAXAS!
