"And all I offer here is the distilled poetry of my existence..." Claude McKay,
Poet Laureate of Jamaica, 1890-1848
I have been a reporter since 1998, covering mainly business and politics. I have also capitalized on the many skills journalism requires to become an all-around communications specialist. In addition to being a professional curious person and communicator, I have a bad case of the travel bug and can't seem to stay put. Finally, I have put my skills to work as a volunteer in the community wherever I have lived. Now, follow me as I combine these compartments of my life in Kingston, Jamaica, where I am a writer, reporter, journalist and lecturer.
Tourists enjoy the beach as a worker rakes the sand, creating a pattern of straight lines. I have never been certain of the point of this. Is nature’s work not more beautiful? I guess at least someone has a job, raking sand that will be moved momentarily.
