My store is in the tiny cellar of a damp 18th century house, which, for roaches and crickets, is the equivalent of a gorgeous ocean-view mansion.  (Sidebar: crickets are just roaches that can do a round-off into your face so don’t be fooled by Disney’s version wearing...

I'm not sure when I first began following 'In Her Shoes' blog, but the site's profiles of black women entrepreneurs are a huge source of inspiration for me.  Founder, media maven Renae Bluitt uses her popular platform to celebrate “some of the most driven, talented, in...

I stopped believing in politics around 2012.

Well maybe that’s not completely accurate… 

I stopped believing in politicians around 2012, but alas it’s also near impossible to have any faith in a system, when the people who are elected to uphold it are trash.

You lot just REALLY don’t know when to leave well enough alone.  I’m convinced that if I were to look up ‘doing too damn much for no reason’ in the dictionary, whom would I find? Bermuda’s anti-LGBTQ crusaders and politicians.

Let’s go back a couple years.

In the lead up...

The Jeremy Frith and Friends event was advertised as a ‘uniquely Bermudian’ night of spoken word.   Throughout the night, they played recordings of him, sometimes reciting his poetry, sometimes just talking about the things he was passionate about – the environment chi...

When I was about 7 years old, I remember answering a question at the Kingdom Hall, and at the end of the meeting, a visitor, a black American woman, complimented me on my participation.

“I love your accent,” she added.

“Mama, she knew I was American!” 

I ran to my mama, a...

Read Essay 1: ... and Friends.

I once read that people write poetry because they experience an emotion so huge that ordinary sentence structure, a traditional paragraph, will not do. That the emotion can only be adequately expressed in verse with a random hyphen and rhy...
