Living in Brooklyn NYC, amidst the hippiest hipsters in the most expensive closet known to man I decided enough is enough and so woke up from the long slumber known as fear of reality. As a young emigrant to the USA, adjusting to the eccentricities of the free world, naturally- alarmed me. Everything needed now to be questioned. Am I indeed African American despite being from a tiny island in the West Indies? Am I to now feign the whiplash of racism even though it really does not bother me? Am I now to feign the feaux plight for feminism and equality, knowing deep down that we women bear all the power needed to continue flourishing humanity? Am I now to relate to all of these socially constructed issues that leave the emigrant minority oblivious?
Finding oneself is paramount for keen understanding and consciousness from whence thou cometh. Sages have often uttered words bearing meaning, that for one to have successfully find them self, they must return to their starting point with learnt eyes, and a deeper more profound sense of self; as a burgeoning sage meself, I find these words to be true. Currently walking my path, making the journey through emotionally unfamiliar valleys, with scenic tours, guided by the light of unconditional love i’m making my way back home, be it Grenada, heaven, or the love of family- journey in light and love.
Having since left the grimy borough known as Brooklyn, i’ll forever cherish in my heart its tough lessons on survival, love, trust, and commitment I have flown the coup. Happily residing with my husband in Maryland I have found that dreams only work when we are awake to make them true. Don’t sleep in the comfort of fear of the unknown, delve headfirst into it, bold and brave and ready to trek into uncharted territory. Take with you the safety and security that there is an omnipotent being who is providing you/us with unconditional levels of energy, love and favor- walk tall.
And here we have the birth of my idea finally taking physical form in the cyber realm. My very first blog that will be linked to my store front site which is a mixture of health tips for the mind, body and soul along with DIY craft ideas and other useful tidbits from a Caribbean American emigrant residing in Maryland who still dreams.
