"REGGAE, MY STORY (3)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, June 17 2009 - Unlike most people, it was not Bob Marley through which I got my first Reggae injection. In fact, it took me a long time before I would even start to overstand just what Bob Marley was up to.
When I started to enjoy the music, just after discovering it in the early 1980's, I was struggling against my strong Christian upbringing which had -as I saw it back then- deprived me from so much.
I was in my early teens and definitely not ready to accept the fact that the Creator did not need no building so to speak, so I figured that I was basically dumped in this creation, a creation created by a Creator Who simply did not want me to be who I am, even though He was said to have created me.
This whole -rather crazy- idea was totally chanted down in the years I was about to live, and discover Reggae.
One Love, Give Thanks,
