Daily Nugget #1: The Grateful Dead, "Ripple"

The 'Daily Nugget' is a section of this blog devoted to individual tracks, sort of a song du jour.

My Uncle Phil passed away today after a long battle with cancer. Ironically, he was not only a doctor, but as far I could tell, by far the most active and healthy member of my entire extended family—cycling, skiing, wind-surfing, he did it all. He was also a Deadhead, and owned a beautifully restored VW microbus. I dedicate this life-affirming song to his memory.
