“Remember, if u need any help call me. I know u are very independent, knowledgeable and resourceful, but call me all the same – for anything – to laugh – to cry – to gripe when homesickness hits” wrote Marcia, my friend from high school. I hadn’t been in touch with Marcia since we graduated […]

I migrated to Canada on Monday. For the first time in my life, I purchased a one-way ticket. This is a huge step, for not only have I moved, my teenagers have also moved with me. It is a big step for my entire family – including my dogs who will be joining us soon! […]

I wrote this last year after Jamaica’s performance in the Beijing Olympics. I am repeating it, after Jamaica’s performance in the Berlin World Championships. The calls for “government to do this and government to do that” are getting louder – I take a different view, as I observe something really interesting. Read on …. Much […]

A rush of seemingly limitless “things to do before I leave” flooded my brain, juxtaposed with the […]

Nothing is ever lost …. but my money was stolen!

There is a chapter in my book, “Free and Laughing: Spiritual Insights in Everyday Moments” entitled “Nothing is ever lost”. In this chapter I reflect on the nature of our divinely ordered Universe, which deems that everything is in its divinely ordered place and can therefore not be lost. “Nothing is ever lost” is a […]

“Your dreads are so beautiful” a new acquaintance said to me “Is it just style or is it something more?” “Oh, just style” I responded flippantly, by now used to comments like this. Yet, I realize that my locks are NOT just style. Yes, they are done using Sisterlocks, a very scientific locking technique. But […]
