Chronixx on Reggae Mountain

Chronixx on Reggae Mountain

Chronixx Acoustic

Saturday July 19, 2014

The raving didn’t end with the beach, Lexxi, Minkah and I decided to take in a Chronixx concert in the night. We arrived at the venue terribly late because of some circumstances  but we were set on going. When we arrived at 11:30 they had stopped charging to enter because the venue was full, they weren’t allowing anyone else in but we decided we weren’t leaving after all it…

The world is yours for the taking said a little voice in my head…

Wednesdays

The day just attracts good vibes.

When I was in high school, our drumming ensemble would have our meetings on Wednesdays. I’ve joined L’Acadco and our main day for drumming is Wednesday.

Or is it that Wednesdays attract the beat of a drum?

Drumming creates good vibes as well and as such is pulled to Wednesdays?

Write Often And Write Enough And Your Voice Will Find You

You will chase your voice like a dog chasing a car, but you’ll never catch it. Because you were your voice all along. You were never the dog. You were always the car.

Writing 101: A Character-Building Experience

He was strolling up the pathway, towards us,  greeting everyone he passed, stopping to speak to some, while others wanted pictures with him.  You could tell he was humble just by the way he tread through the crowd. He was the man of the hour, we were waiting for him and the late start was expected because Jamaicans being on time would have been a sight to see. Lexxi and I were leaned up against…
