  • Thoughts On Living Accountably

    A year has come and gone and I still find myself on this beautiful island. I find the work I am doing — community development — to be fulfilling and the earlier stumbles of learning experiences have slowed. I am comfortable in my daily movements and can generally navigate...
  • Walking While The World Rides?

    In so many areas of life, Jamaica seems comfortable with easy-going, laid-back, “no-problem-mon” archaic circumstances.

  • Similarities between the Amazon and Jamaica

    The South American fire season is entering its last stages, and it has been one for the records. The fire season (or dry season) has seen the Amazon, starting in Brazil, reaching an inferno stage while the world cries crocodile tears and does half actions. This has been so...
  • Precautions for survival in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian
