Walking The Unfamiliar Road

Have you ever gone walking in an unfamiliar neighborhood? At the start of the walk everything is new and interesting but after a few feet in and with every new twist and turn you realize you have no idea where you are, but still, you keep walking. With every turn you feel more lost, youContinue reading “Walking The Unfamiliar Road”

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. So, since we’re not into “pina coladas and getting caught in the rain”, if you don’t getContinue reading “Fear, Ego, Truth & Love”

Familiarity of the Sun

I live for sunrises and sunsets, and I have photographed many. I have chased them to different ends of the earth, to just the right spaces in some of the most beautiful places. I have gotten up early in the morning to capture many a sunrise, a perfect mix of colorful hues, heartwarming tones ofContinue reading “Familiarity of the Sun”

Journeys in June

So, here we are at the end of June and already we’re halfway through the year. Let’s be honest, June has left some of us reeling from all its new developments and deliberations. Personally, June has thrown me for a loop, but on the upside, it has also presented me with some great experiences andContinue reading “Journeys in June”

17 Days Ago

I have already spent 17 full glorious days in Jamaica. I’ve waded in the river, hiked up a mountain, rafted on the Martha Brae, climbed a waterfall, swam in the ocean and driven legally on the wrong side of the road. I’ve dodged what felt like a million potholes and got caught by a millionContinue reading “17 Days Ago”

The Blue Mountains of Jamaica

When we were young our parents never trusted those busses shuttling children back and forth to school trips. So, usually that meant that unless my dad was able to take the day off from work to drive behind the bus we weren’t going. Can’t say I remember exactly, but somehow there is this vague memoryContinue reading “The Blue Mountains of Jamaica”

Humble Beginnings

I mentioned in my last post that I was a country girl from the Parish of St Thomas in Jamaica, and I posted some beautiful pictures of where I grew up. The reality is, it’s not all “sunshine and roses” for everyone in my Parish. For lots of people living in St Thomas and otherContinue reading “Humble Beginnings”

Bloganuary #21 – I Choose Now

Prompt: If you could, what year would you time travel to and why? I’m sure there are some people out there with some great stories and valid reasons as to why they would want to time travel backwards or forwards in this life so I won’t make light of this topic. For me personally, theContinue reading “Bloganuary #21 – I Choose Now”

Bloganuary #2 Back in Jamaica

Some of the best road trips I have ever taken were as a child in my home country of Jamaica while travelling in my father’s gray Datsun pickup truck. Nothing beats sitting in the back facing the wind while speeding through hilly winding country roads. We would leave out early in the morning so weContinue reading “Bloganuary #2 Back in Jamaica”
