Why I Read It
Although I grew up in the height of the 80's, my typical big-haired 80's girl persona was short lived. By highschool I was a closet hippie in boots, tie-dye and gypsy skirts. My favorite music included Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, the Doors and- yes, the Grateful Dead. My mother frequently told me I was in a misplaced generation. In fact I wrote a social studies paper on how I would reconstruct societial norms based on the Grateful Dead philosophy (I called it Stoney Island- my friends still tease me about it).
