“The Future is not Written” – Joe Strummer

As 2012 comes to an end I naturally find myself thinking about what is to come.  The late Joe Strummer has been on my mind lately because the 10 year anniversary of his death was this month.  Strummer projected a forward thinking attitude about change and taking control of our own destinies, which I like very much.  I’ll be ringing in the new year with the music of Joe Strummer and the long line of musicians he is associated with including Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, John Lennon and Bob Marley.  Happy New Year!

“And so now I’d like to say – people can change anything they want to. And that means everything in the world. People are running about following their little tracks – I am one of them. But we’ve all got to stop just following our own little mouse trail. People can do anything – this is something that I’m beginning to learn. People are out there doing bad things to each other. That’s because they’ve been dehumanized. It’s time to take the humanity back into the center of the ring and follow that for a time. Greed, it ain’t going anywhere. They should have that in a big billboard across Times Square. Without people you’re nothing. That’s my spiel.”
