Feeling Good!

The weekend is upon us and I’m under the influence of FUN
I’m on the carribean beaches of Negril, Jamaica – in the sun.

I know alot of things are ‘going on’ on the Kingston royal bays,
But Negril is at least 130 miles away – so we’re feeling pretty safe. 😉

So far so good – the fun is just getting started.
I’ve been in the “party state of mind” since we DFW parted.

I’ve met some good people and many more will be met
Tonight we’ll club on the beach at a joint called: Alfred’s.

I’m feeling good tonight amidst mother natures smug humidity,
I’ve got a RED STRIPE and smokey ambience- thus all is good with me.

When in Rome – Wear Roman Sandles,
I’m Qui
Dreaded up. 🙂


What’chu know about JAMAICA ‘mon?

Positive JAMAICAN NotesI obviously don’t know enough, and even though recent incites of violence in Kingston, Jamaica is quite concerning and discerning I still have a love for it. So the early morning found me up researching Jamaican artists whose dance hall tones override the ‘violence jones’. I found Ms. Cherine Anderson. Do you know her?
She’s beautiful, she sings, dances, acts and blogs. Carribbean Net News covered a film that she starred in “One Loveopposite Idris Elba [2006 International Film Festival]. The film trailer is hot and Carribean Net News gave it outstanding reviews. Cherine needs not flaunt combat boots or a gun strap in tow to get attention – She’s a NO LIMIT SOLDIER at the core of her soul. Born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica. Get to know her & vibe her positivity.

What about Queen Ifrica? Surely you know her…Right? Oh ‘mon Queen Ifrica’s soulful sounds are comparable to ourIndia Arie, but with a more authentic root. She reps Montego Bay lovely. Peep her hue:

[In depth Translation: You can’t take my virginity away from me]
Where’s our “domestic comparable” to THAT? 🙂

Somebody’s gotta balance this thang out
(media reflection). Why not me? Marcus Garvey (Jamaican native) came to the US — HARLEM in fact — and brought positivity and unity with him (his asset is historically documented). The least I can do is keep a positive outlook and prayers going out – as Kingston goes through one of the roughest patches it’s faced in a long time.

Sometimes it’s hard to pray for somebody or for people you don’t know. Maybe you didn’t know any Jamaicans as of yesterday, though today I beg to differ. Get to know Cherine and Queen Ifrica – they’re just two positive notes on an island of many…

Stay tuned for more JAMAICAN Insight,

and it’s my pleasure to “focus on” — in my writes.
