Bless. As I record this beautiful song, "Blowin' In The Wind" I thought of Meritah/Africa, my own mortality and destiny in the center of the crimes on humanity in this otherwise magical place, I'm presenced by the Spirit and Being of the wonderful and prolific Bob Dylan and in defiance to the absurdity of it all. In the Spirit of one love and Jamaica.
