    That's Fred... yes, her real name is Fred, says so on her driver's liscence, I checked. Fred is one of my bestest mostest superest friends on the planet.

    Like me, Fred's a deadhead, but she's got the tatoos to show it...LOL.

    Fred's an amazing soul ... and I call her that because she's more than just a person ... she's got the most amazing outlook on life, and the most incredible veiw on everything. Her parting words all the time (even when she was in the hospital, seriously ill) is "Have fun, be free."

    This was taken at Fred's most natural setting, a music festival. She had just heard the band she had flown from Seatle to NY to see wasn't going to play because of the rain. Oddly, I hadn't heard, and I saw her sit on the ground, so I took the shot.

    ... and that's pretty much it
     
  4. I was trying to figure out the title and how it meshed with the image when I spotted the tattoo. Good one.

    Very cool. I never met a girl named Fred - it's a great name so why not! :)

    It's actually her name too... to everyone she's Grateful Fred, since we all are fans of the band, The Grateful Dead.
