Some great connections...

As it's long past time for spring cleaning, I'm doing summer polishing instead. As a result, you'll see a new picture of Zoey, who has started to walk, and of Grandma who is, thank God, still more or less able to keep up with Zoey. Trying too to stick with the blog, which I started because I've known for a while that we are close to some kind of radical shift in how we on this planet live, and I felt I ought to say so. Thus the blog's concern for the environment, both physical and social, and for song and story, which I feel have important roles in seeing us through whatever it is we're going to go through. I don't go on about God up here, but if you feel there's a Spirit of any kind out there, it's time to be in touch. Ergo... If you come by here to visit from time to time, do tell your friends to stop by, as we'll talk about all these things in upcoming posts. Folks who are interested in Caribbean literature, and in good scholarship may find it worthwhile to visit over the next few posts. I don't claim to be a scholar, but having edited an academic journal (the Caribbean Journal of Education) for many years, having done editorial work and been an editorial consultant for regional and international presses, some quite big, and having been publisher for our own small press (Sandberry), I know a little bit about how the scholarship thing ought to be done. There's some misinformation, downright wrong information, and maybe even a little mischief out there. We'll try to set a few things straight, and if we go astray ourselves, we'll be glad to be corrected. Stay posted!
