Since I mentioned Tomas in my last post, I figured now is as good a times as any to show you, the world, the damaged my sweet-sweet country of residence, St. Lucia, sustained. Click the first pic below to be taken to a photo album, and see below for my personal snapshots of the flooding in front of my house.

Pretty bad, huh? I know.
I hope all is well in your neck of the woods, and if not I trust that change is on the way. There’s seemingly nothing more frustrating than when our surroundings are in disarray!
Here on my side of the world we are sorta at the beginning of the Hurricane Season and we’re bracing our communities for a Tropical Depression. Sounds…dangerous huh? Yep, it is! Buuuuut oddly enough Tropical Waves, Tropical Depressions and Hurricanes excite me. As long as I am safe, I am not the least bit worried or scared. I looooove the to hear the wind howling outside and the sound of the rain on the window panes and on the roof is…exciting. That is one of the few words than come to mind when I think of Hurricanes (and their associated stages). Of course the fun comes with, not a grain but, a bucket of salt i.e. the damage and the aftermath! *sigh*
Hopefully we won’t get a repeat of Tomas.
I will be at the Nation Cultural Centre this Friday evening at 8pm to indulge in St. Lucia’s production of Ntozake Shange’s 1975 play/chorepoetry.
For those of you who are not able to make is on Friday, I believe it’s on at the same time on Saturday. – Call NCC for confirmation!
Come on out and support the nations talented artist. – The evening ought to be very interesting. Especially for me who hates to read and as a result had never heard of the book before 2010. :-/
See you there!
