1981

_mg_5019

1981 is the year i came here. I was born at the Spanish Town Hospital, in the parish of St.Catherine, Jamaica.

I came right after the People’s National Party (PNP) had lost the national election to the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP).

1981 marked the end of Jamaica’s experiment with self-determination and the beginning of the second wave of colonialism.

In a way i emerged at some kind of half way point in time and i decided to make some notes here about how life has been playing out in Jamaica since 1981.

(Ooh and if you love Reggae Music i was born the same year Bob Marley died.)
