the bob marley documentary at the tricycle theatre last night in a room full of proud jamaicans, followed by live q&a with director kevin macdonald was 37 kinds of awesome.
i spent most of my life listening to bob marley, first on the turn table, then cassette deck, then cd drive and now mp3 player and i hardly knew a thing about the man behind the music. needless to say, i have a whole new appreciation for him.
my dad sang this verse to me last time i saw him, a week or so before i moved to the uk. he said: “now remember… don’t worry about a thing, because every little thing gonna alright.” it may very well be one of my favorite dad moments. and i have to keep reminding myself, even when it’s dark and cold and rainy and scary…
that every little thing is gonna be alright.
