Why I love Jason Castro

I traveled to Skopje, Macedonia in 1991. The country was just recovering from Communism. Things were still a mess. But the people I were with had pronounced artistic qualities. Music, poetry, art. Those are things that flourish in a society where the people have no means. By no means is that a justification for communism, but their talents were obvious. Heck, maybe it was just a European thing, but that was my suspicion.

Anyway, fast forward to 2008. This Jason Castro cat...the guys talent and how he consistently chooses uplifting songs...it just reminds me of these young Macedonians oozing with passion and creativity. And Hope. Enjoy.
