by



MAIA CHUNG



THE devil is in the details, right? Or is it in the insidious? Insidious as defined by the Oxford Dictionary says: proceeding in a gradual subtle way, but with harmful effects.

It’s that slow seep that creeps into the mind, heart and soul when we are most unguarded. To me that is why Jamaica is a morally failed state and becoming more so every day.

We neglect the gradual and slow ways in which we achieve…

Yet that apparently is not stopping Sanchez from spreading her blogging skills to others. The Global Post… Continue

Searching for the Saint Lucian in us!

Isn’t it time we gave our children something to be truly proud about? What does it really mean to be Saint Lucian? What about us defines us as Saint Lucian? Is there such a thing as being Saint Lucian? I thought about these questions and though not conclusively, came up with some idiosyncrasies that perhaps can be described as Saint Lucian.

Water Whereforth Art Thou?

Water Whereforth Art Thou?

by Maia Chung

Water is the source of life and it drives me crazy to think that after four decades have

elapsed, since independence no new dam construction has been planned or

executed in this nation Jamaica.

Our population has grown since then... the up springing of communities across the island, the

designation of a new city...that of Portmore and no administration has

thought it fitting to even plan for a new dam?

With attention… Continue

Generation next needs our help!

A day usually reserved for church, late breakfast, time to spend with the family, maybe do the chores we did not complete on Saturday, best describes what I consider to be a typical Sunday.
