I know I owe my readers a few posts for the A to Z Challenge but I just had to share my new article on Upful Journal:
A few minutes before Maracas Bay, I stopped at a little roadside stall which sold savoury sweets and pickled fruits. I said hello to the lady and the two young boys with her, asking for my usual pepper pineapple, and ordered a potato pie from her TODAY chalkboard menu. While she ‘went in the back’ to make the pie for me, the older boy, probably around nine years of age, looked up at me.
“You reaching as far as Maracas Beach? I could get a drop?”
My first reaction was surprise. I was a stranger to him! ”Where’s your family?” I asked.
“Here, but I just going there by my grandfather,”
The rest of my story can be found here. I hope you enjoy it and do explore. Upful Journal, an independent online journal with the vision of uniting Trinidad and Tobago as a community based on a mindful, positive, compassionate attitude and way of living, is all about sharing – sharing views, insights, expertise and opinions, but with a positive spin.
I will be back later tonight with my missing W, X and Y posts for the A to Z. Cheers!
Love and Light,
