As July Fades to Black

July literally came in with a bang as we celebrated our country’s independence on the 4th of July. As I was going through my phone looking for pictures to highlight the month, it appears I spent a good part of each day, looking up at the sky and watching soccer. Soccer has become a lifestyleContinue reading “As July Fades to Black”

The Incompatibility Code

Feature Image by: Pinterest I’m surrounded by a lot of young people in my life. I have a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends, and I consider myself blessed, on most days, to have three young men of my own who are happy and healthy, and for the most part, still living at home.Continue reading “The Incompatibility Code”

Fear, Ego, Truth & Love

My husband and I spent the weekend in Virginia. Lately, we had somehow fallen into that “same old dull routine” of quiet lazy comfort and while that’s okay for a while, sometimes you have to “spice” it up.

Flying By their Seats

Growing up my generation was always encouraged to have a backup plan for whatever we did in life. This made perfect sense to me, after all, life’s outcomes were never guaranteed. Therefore, it was just common sense to make allowances for contingencies and disappointments. That meant making sure we had a few other cards tuckedContinue reading “Flying By their Seats”

The Hungry Sister

Today is my older sister’s birthday. As children growing up in Jamaica our parents would insist that we eat and drink what I thought back then, were horrible tasting foods. If I had a penny for the number of times I heard the line, “eat it, it good fi yuh” I would be wealthy. ForContinue reading “The Hungry Sister”
