Greetings On-Line Family!

    We hope your Thanksgiving was peaceful,   enjoyable and full of loved ones sharing, rejoicing and giving thanks together!

Last week we did not have an opportunity to connect with you via our weekly e-mail due to some computer glitches.   We think it may have been a virus of some sort, but thanks to Todd I am on the "ball" again.  Even though he figured everything out and fixed the problem, on the 1st Day of Christmas he gave me a present; which was his brand new laptop!!  

  These past 2 weeks have certainly been very devastating for many in Washington DC and surrounding areas (Maryland and Virginia) due to the murder of Washington Redskins Safety Sean Taylor.  Fans all across the nation and locally are mourning his untimely death.  Here it is, another young life has selfishly been taken through violence, but this time it's a little different, it crossed over barriers, and struck a football star!!! 

According to the reports Sean was asleep in his home in Miami Florida with his Fiancée and child and was awakened by noises.  He grabbed a knife/machete that he kept under his bed and headed out of his room.  However, he never made it out because intruders burst into his bedroom and fired 2 shots, one of which struck Sean in his thigh that badly severed an artery, resulting from him loosing tremendous amounts of blood; that eventually caused him to pass away a day later.

Taylor a very silent guy seemed to have kept to himself a lot and really said very little.  However, he played extremely hard and took his job very seriously.  Fans in a kind of "cult like" way loved and worshipped him, because his playing was exciting and completely out-of-sight.  He just played hard!!!  It is so unfair that (1) his life was taken; (2) at such a young age and (3) in the prime of his career.

You know, one thing I didn't understand is why the many reports I've read and heard felt it necessary to talked about Taylor's past "brush" with the law, about some minor things young folks do from time to time and even us adults (driving under the influence; a misdemeanor, even details about some football fines), COME ON...to me none of them really has any relevance to this case.  It is clear he was young and did things most young people would do.   The fact remains though, is that a young man who many on his team stated seemed to have matured tremendously since the birth of his daughter 18 months ago, has been taken from all of his fans, family, daughter and fiancée in a violent manner

I noticed that the 4 young men who did this crime is in custody in Miami, their ages are 17, 18, 19 & 20.  All have been denied bail and are under a suicide watch.  It is such a shame that the killing of each other continues, our own youths simply won't stop taking each others lives.  In this case a football star's  life was selfishly taken, just callously gunned down due to robbery by his own people.  Actually, people that we are coming to find out knew Sean, and was friends of a family member.  What a terrible incident and a shame for this violence, and most importantly for this unfortunate loss.

ProFlowers  Well, the mourning continues and will continue for some time to come.  We will all miss Sean Taylor, and most importantly his excellent playing.  The Redskins has lost one of its stars!!!!  However, we know he will be shinning in heaven.  May his family find peace during this time of sorrow and hold dear to them the wonderful memories.

  

  

A couple of weekends ago Todd and I attended a concert in Washington DC and the artists made such an impression on me that I must share my thoughts with you about them.  The artists are all from Trinidad - Marlon Asher (known for his hit single Ganga Farmer that took the Caribbean and International airwaves by storm), Khari Kill (known for his hit single "Picture of Salassie" that hit the reggae scene in a big way) and the duo I-Shasha and Million Voices (with their hit song "Don't you know your love is devine".)

Conscious Reggae is the musical style of these Trinidadian artists.  Yes, positive, conscious reggae music!  Imagine (1) "Trinis" singing Reggae and sounding  just as great as any popular reggae singer; and (2) imagine real good reggae coming out of the land of soca?  Hum, I'm sure it's unimaginable to many, but not to me because I grew up in Trinidad on "dub" (as I called it and as many do in Trinidad.)  

Hearing these gentlemen sing and watching their performance gave me a sense of pride, because I have had a small glimpse of the struggle many before them endured to be recognized and heard (singing this dub).  

Critics are calling this upsurge of conscious and positive music written, produced and performed by Trinidadian artists NEW, but this music is not new, it was being produced in Trinidad for a long time.  One of our most memorable trips to my place of birth (Trinidad) several years ago, we were swept from fete to fete to fete to fete checking out some up and coming "ragga soca" artists (at the time) some of the artists were "General Grant", "Daddy Ozzy" and another young man who called himself "Super Child" (I believe).   Then, I saw the potential for what they were doing, saw the movement they were building , and felt the excitement the youths and even adults from Trinidad were experiencing.  I only wished then we were not so focused on our business (Dry Cleaning company), so that we could have grabbed on to this music and guided it to higher heights.

Now that I have seen these positive singers live, heard their voices live, and have had an opportunity to review most of their music, I feel extremely good about this upsurge of young conscious reggae artist coming out of my home, and I truly love what they are doing.  Their lyrics are really good and very positive; their rhythms/music are enjoyable, and in a nutshell they are darn good.  Again, I am excited and proud to see this taking place, and even more proud that these talented young men are beginning to get some major air play, and that they are able to crossed over seas with their conscious music.  

Look out for these guys in your town, and for their music.  Currently, I'm really "digging" (1) Marlon Ashers's hit "Love of Jah" (you can really hear Marlon's singing abilities); (2) I-Shasa's hit "Who Jah Bless", (3) I-Shasa and Million Voices hit "I Know Jah" (they harmonize so well together), and 4) Benjai "I got something 4U".  Also look out for the following artist out of Trinidad who are doing "big things" with this reggae music: Prophet Benjamin, Mr, King, Demolition Man, Levi Myaz, Jah Bami and a few others.
