Thank you, Mr Marley

Thank you, Mr Marley

Listen to Bob Marley’s “One Love”

2-09-shame-and-scandal

Jamaican Bob Marley is the defacto ambassador of the Caribbean islands.  His image is ubiquitous on every island I’ve visited (t-shirts mostly, but other things as well), his music is played with joy and reverence, and his Rastafarian belief in “One World, One Love” resonates today more than ever.

He was 36 in 1981 when he succumbed to cancer.

The official Bob Marley website claims the reason Mr Marley’s music still touches all ages and cultures of people around the globe is because it “embodies political repression, metaphysical and artistic insights, gangland warfare and various periods of mystical wilderness.”

I’m not sure what mystical wilderness is, but I do know his music is simply beautiful to listen to.
