Lost in Translation

Time always changes.

No matter how hard we try to put a routine to it and sometimes control it ... we are all fools to think we can.

It slips out of our fingers... it disappears with the blink of an eye .... and before you even know it .... seconds turns to minutes, turns to hours, turns to days, turns to nights, turns to months, turns to years.

When do you find time for life... for yourself... for your children... for your love?

A moment in time also has the ability to capture an emotion.. a feeling that .... when you recall a time past you can also remember the tears shed, the laughter among friends, the passion enflamed....

Time lets you appreciate life... it lets you hope for a better tomorrow ... it lets you think that tomorrow is a new day ... a Better Day.

Be engulfed by time. Know that it can be your enemy or your friend. Know that you must make the best of what time you have. Know that you only have a little time to love, and not waste time on hate. Spend time on things and people who matter, for they are what make time spent worth reminiscing.

No matter what enjoy it ... embrace it and appreciate the gift of time.

I do.


  1. Ah, very well written post! I like that you said "time can be your enemy or your friend", it definitely makes you think on how you spend your time.

  2. Time is definitely an interesting thing...and we can't make more of it so we have to enjoy the heck out of what we have.

  3. I always find myself wishing for more time. You're right, its best to make the most of what you have!

  4. So true. It's so important to make the most of the time we have on hand.

  5. Beautiful post! Your comment "Know that you only have a little time to love, and not waste time on hate," really spoke to my heart tonight. It made me think about the time spent in disagreements with those you love rather than nurturing those relationships. And we never really have enough heal and to forgive. Well written.

  6. I think that this is my favorite post of yours. Thank you for reminding me to be present. Beautiful.

My Version of Fall.

I have been seeing on other blogs beautiful pictures of the ever changing and eye stimulating Fall season. Honestly living in Trinidad limits your experiences of the changing seasons and seeing how spring turns to summer to fall and then winter. All I have is endless summer greenery. All I have is the constant warm weather and lush green rain forests.

So I have been living vicariously through other blog admiring the Fall pictures and sometimes questioning if it is really true. Then I had a beautiful sunny day yesterday and got to spend the day just lying on a beach and soaking in the sun. So I decided to give you all my version of Fall. And see what we get during the Fall Season.


 I visited a beach house in Blanchisseuse Beach and it was attached to 3 different bays. It was fun just splashing in the waves, and fun exploring each bay in the warming sun.

This was a bird's eye view of the bay that had clear green water and little watery caves to hide under. My son really liked…

Hate is a strong word.

When you live on a small island like I do in Trinidad, you really do not want to be too outspoken about terrible things happening to someone you know, because it is almost as if you are talking about it happening in your own backyard. But the fact is, terrible things do happen and unfortunately it sometimes happen to people you know or people who you cannot ignore.

In the last month there was a unforgettable incident of a little girl being attacked and physically taken advantage of ... and this rocked out entire community. Mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, granddaughters and friends were really disturbed about the attack... because you do feel as if it has happened in your back yard! For a few weeks no one felt safe in their own homes and everyone was whispering about the ever changing rumors of the whereabouts of a man, who manage to physically hurt 1 and mentally hurt 100s.

In my heart I do feel sorry for the young girl and pray that through God, family and friends she can be a su…
