A Jewish Girl’s Reggae Odyssey

A Jewish Girl’s Reggae Odyssey

I imagine there are moments in every nice young Jewish girl’s life when she is miraculously taken out of her safe little Jewish sphere, and if only temporarily, let loose in the world, privy to the wilderness of the Diaspora and its ever-colorful, cultural quirks, made insatiably curious, inspired and hungry for “the rest of the world”…Ok, well maybe not every nice young Jewish girl.

I distinctly remember sitting on a hilltop in the Pacific Northwest surrounded by smiles and dread locks and sweat and sun, the bass from the sound system echoing in my solar plexus while small gentle breezes swept past me leaving aural trails of hemp and lavender.
