Another Step Taken

Its amazing how every time you finish one thing there is another thing to start just around the corner.

As a mother you finish the dishes in the sink... you have to fold clothes in the drier. You finish homework with your son... and you have to start with your daughter. You start cleaning the house .... and you get the picture! Right!

As a teacher when one class leaves computers another one enters. You finish one educational program ... you have to start another. You just finish putting a plaster on a bruised knee and another one is making their way to you. You say something once in class ... you have to say it again ... and again ... and again.  :)

As a writer when you finish your novel you realize there are more steps to follow.  These stepping stones fail to reveal how challenging or nerve raking you can become with every step. Emotions are good ... they are what keeps you grounded, but they also makes you aware how important this next step is for you.

There is a big part of me that is hold my breath in anticipation to see the final print layout of my book and another part is nervous of what is to come.

No matter what ... I have to face each new step with the hope that I am ready to take on whatever responsibility it may bring.

Wish me luck ... and here are some motivational stepping stones to fill you with hope.

They helped me!!

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…
