Saturday morning, that’s yesterday I attended the funeral service of my friend’s mother. She was given a beautiful and just perfect eulogy by her only daughter.

[Derwent Intense ink pencils on water colour paper - Happy First People's Holiday]





[Inspiration]
Today in Trinidad and Tobago we celebrate First People's Day as a Public Holiday remembering our Amerindian Ancestors who had been living as many as 6000 years here, before the colonizers arrived. We still retain some place names like Rivers: Caroni and Oropouche. Also some Foods remain such as Cassava and Farine.

There are three significant birthdays for me in October. Today is one of them - it's my Goddaughter's birthday. Happy Birthday Meeks!!!
I was browsing some Pinterest fashions only yesterday. Seems gingham prints are back, in a big way. I remember wearing a brown gingham print dress for my goddaughter's christening, wayyyyyy back when.
