“Fun fact #1 about pomegranates: Pomegranates are awesome.
Fun fact #2: Pomegranates are like little explosions of awesome in your mouth.
Fun fact #3: A lot of people think you’re not supposed to eat the seeds of a pomegranate – but that’s not true, people who tell you that are liars, and they don’t know anything about life, and they should never be trusted.”
― Tahereh Mafi

A bit of bad news today was sweetened with the fruit of my childhood – Pomegranate. Pure ecstasy!

What I learnt yesterday

Wheresoever you may roam, love oh love your island home

Yesterday my island home hereafter referred to as sweet St. Lucia, celebrated 35 years of Independence from England. I, like many of my friends was there in spirit but across the globe (from my view on Facebook, Instagram) we experienced a resurgence of national pride that threatens never to ebb.

Everywhere you looked there were the colors of our flag – blue for the surrounding waters, yellow for the sun or as I like to say our sunny personalities, black and white for our people.

We are well known for more that our famous twin peaks, the Pitons, and Jade Mountain resort one of the top travel destinations in the world. From Mongstar to Dupes Brice and Curmiah Lisette on the music scene, Chef Nina Compton on Top Chef, Laurah John winner of International Entrepreneurship Competition and many other fellow countrymen we are blazing trails.

Happy 35th Independence Anniversary to my sweet island home. I will always stay in love with you.
