When GOD created JAMAICA, He was just showing off!
Hey there! You know me, I had to have a flamboyant page name. So yes, this is my blog! I know that there are many, MANY sites that celebrate the beauty of my little island, Jamaica, and yes, this is just one more. This is a celebration of my sense of priviledge at being born and bred here. It’s one of the strange things about me, I’m as nationalistic as they come, even while giving up on the world in general.
I have wondered what this site will say for and about me. I imagine that that will unfold over the next few months and result in something that even I have not anticipated. This said, I will do things my way. I will take my own photographs, not of the tourist traps, but the sites that I see daily and have only just begun not to take for granted. I will speak about the people whom I admire; even if they are not my nation’s National Heroes. I will discuss Reggae and Dancehall, but I will talk about Jamaican Jazz as well… You get the picture, don’t you?
Well, let’s get on with it…
