    Last night, my baby and me attended the Rootz Underground musical event in Redway, at the Mateel. During the first song I felt amazing strength of astounding love and attention. All the men are attractive and beautiful. Steven’s voice reminded me of Bob Marley, when he sang in Jamaica to unite the two political canidates. The beautiful keyboardist flowed words of love for forests. I loved his voice and words. The beautiful guitaristplayed so extremely well. The beautiful drummer drummed so powerfully and truly. The entire band made my heart beat with indecribable passion. I loved the way the lead singer jumped and danced,chanted and sang, and roared. I loved how he came close and knelt and held the fingers of my son and smiled warmly as he sang. I loved how my baby loved the moment. I loved how the lead singer came and knelt and picked up my son and carried him to the microphone stand and sang while holding him in his arm. A drunken young woman in very little clothing was at my rig speaking loudly about how great the moment was for baby

    …and I respected her, while clearly showing that was trying to absorb my baby and his first moment on stage. The moment meant, and means, so much to me. I am so grateful to have had the honor of attending such a beautiful, rebel event. Big ups to the band, the promoters, the supporters and all the lovers. Jahdonn and me love Rootz Underground with love so true.
