    I’d just been contacted by a 10-year old nephew that I’ve never seen before with a photograph and he looks like a new-age star child. No sooner had I questioned what I could send such a child for his birthday in July, when Ziggy came on BBC Radio in England. His perspective on things matches my own and he wants to re-seed the earth and protect it as our home. I’d like to send his songs and music to this young nephew but it would be better if I could know for sure that all the songs were of this ethic and all would be good for this young boy. In the late ’60′s, I was travelling around Jamaica and joined up with a stressed-out American student in his rental car who wouldn’t stop to look at anything when I asked him to. When we got to Ocho Rios, he obligingly pulled into the parking area of the water falls to sleep for the night, he in the front and me in the back seat. After only a short while, I had the most urgent need to depart from that place. Incredibly, he responded to me and drove out. As we pulled out onto the highway, me still in the back seat, I was caressed by a Rastafarian Spirit who was very visible to me. Clearly, this spirit wanted me out of there. Whether all this ties together, I don’t know, only time will tell!
    I know of Marley’s Ghost in the film, “Christmas Carol”. Could this have been Bob Marley’s Spirit even though he was very much alive at that time?
