Brian was saying that he was keeping up with the Krishna's at all the DEAD concerts (the Grateful Dead rock band). "We would be there singing and dancing with the Krishnas. But then Garcia passed away and we got into family and responsibilities."
We had an astounding gathering (not exactly like the Dead concerts) but a group of 20 people had come to Brian's Love Boutique and Yoga Studio, in Newcastle, for hearing from our 'Tales from Trails' and kirtan.
What a marvelous mature group they were! This occurred after a 17 mile jaunt today when I weathered some rain, sun, hail, sun, and wind - one after the other. It was Gopal who encountered more interaction from people.
"Hey, you're parked on my grass! That's my grass! And you, don't start spinnin' your tires there!"
Gopal was aghast at the outburst of misrepresenting appropriate ownership. After-all everything belongs to God.
Another fellow became disturbed for Gopal's pulling over the vehicle too far into his driveway and waiting for me to reach there. When he explained to the complainer that he was the support person for a monk walking across America, for America, he just calmed right down and offered a great place by a pond for parking at.
All's well that ends well.
May the Source be with you!
