When You Read... You Write

READ...
When you read... you imagine...
When you read... you believe...
When you read... you learn...
When you read... you write...

Reading is the doorway to many possibilities and the silver lining to a dark cloud of self doubt and the unknown. It broadens your horizon and exposes you to different cultures, theories and endless discoveries.

In support of Reading Literacy I recently offered my children's novel Dragon Boyz as a special prize to the Maple Leaf International School. So apart from enjoying the experiencing of seeing the pride on their students' faces, I liked showing the young learners what they can achieve if they allow their creative juices to flow.

It was a great honor to present the Grade 3 student with Dragon Boyz, and appreciated the welcome I received from their Librarian, Gena Mohammed and the Maple Leaf school body.

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.

Enjoy.


 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…
