Laying beside my love

As I lay here beside my love

My heart races with love

I see our past

I see our present

I want our future

I want to touch you and say I will forever love you but fearful of rejection I lay in the dark and listen to you breathe.

My heart races with love

The possibility of rejection pains me

Makes each breath harder

Makes each thought clearer

Makes me realize I am nothing without you

I miss you

I miss your love

I miss your compassion

I miss your laugher

I miss your smile

I miss that I used to make you happy


Blind OR NOT

You think I can’t see you?

You think me a fool?

I see you…

Not every quiet moment means I am asleep.

Not every quiet moment means I am a fool.

Not every quiet moment means I don’t see YOU.

I see you…

I hear you…

I feel you…



During a lunchtime conversation, we discussed pet peeves/annoyances. I thought it interesting some of the things we find annoying…

People are so very different and so much alike… One would think some of these issues apply only to them but we all had at least one issue in common.

Some issues of annoyance;

  • Tooth paste should not be squeezed from the top.
  • After cleaning or using the toilet, the seat should be left dry and closed.
  • Hair should not be left in the bath when you are finished taking a shower. Wash the hair and soap scum from the bath when you are finish.
  • Pack dishes to be washed in the the sink properly (in order of size).
  • Whatever is used after the kitchen is cleaned should be washed by whomever used it.
  • Bed should be spread by the last person to get out of it.
  • Clothes should be pin on the line by size and type
  • Clothes pins should be used in colour order
  • After the house is cleaned (wipe/mop), no one is allowed to walk in the area until its dried

Now, one should understand none of these issues should be taken lightly. What might be nothing or silly to you maybe as serious as a heart attack to someone else. Understanding this will greatly aid in moving a relationship forward or understanding the relationship is at the end.


Not posting my words today…  Wanted to share the words from a song done by Lil Wayne.  This song made me fan…  Love this song!

With everything happening today
You dont know whether you’re coming or going
But you think that you’re on your way
Life lined up on the mirror dont blow it
Look at me when Im talkin to you

images (1)

You looking at me but I’m lookin through you
I see the blood in your eyes
I see the love in disguiseI see the pain hidden in your pride
I see you’re not satisfied
And I dont see nobody else
I see myself I’m looking at the

Mirror on the wall, here we are again
Through my rise and fall
You’ve been my only friend

You told me that they can understand the man I am
So why are we here talkin’ to each other again

Oh, I see the truth in your lies
I see nobody by your side
but I’m with you when you re all alone
And you correct me when Im lookin wrong
I see that guilt beneath the shame
I see your soul through your window pain
I see the scars that remain
I see you —-, Im lookin at the..

Mirror on the wall, here we are again
Through my rise and fall
You’ve been my only friend
You told me that they can understand the man I am
So why are we here talkin’ to each other again

Lookin at me now I can see my past
Damn I look just like my f-ckin dad
Light it up, thats smokin’ mirrors
I even look good in the broken mirror
I see my momma smile thats a blessin
I see the change, I see the message
and no message could been any clearer
So I’m stared with the man in the…

Mirror on the wall, here we are again

You told me that they can understand the man I am

Mirror on the wall, here we are again
Through my rise and fall
You’ve been my only friend

Having a problem lately thinking about not so stupid things.

My current issue is public restrooms…

1. We shouldn’t need to put up a sign that says, “Please flush”.  That is a given… As a matter of fact, you should even double-check to ensure the toilet was flushed properly.

2. You wash your mouth after a meal, please wash out the sink after.  We really don’t need to see what you had for lunch.

3. You can urinate in the toilet bowl (urinal for men).  The floor is for walking and I don’t need to walk in your “pee”.

4. We understand that passing waste often times smell stink.  Light a match… Nothing more on that.

5. For the men, the urinal is for urinating.  Tissue, hand towel or any other solids won’t flush in the urinal… Urinate and wash your hands and use the damn waste-bin provided.

6. For the women, is it possible to dress completely from your homes?  Women get to work and spend another 20 minutes in the restroom hiding their beauty with makeup.

7. It’s my understanding women don’t sit on the public toilets…  The least you can do is wipe the urine from the seat when you’re done!  Damn it ladies, improve your aim or sit down!

8. Just so you understand, it’s not that I have a problem with you, I just don’t like talking to men while I urinate.  Can we save the chat until I’m finished?

No one should have to say these things…  The condition you keep the restrooms in, is indicative of what you do at home.  Don’t be prim and proper on the outside and a slob on the inside.

Take a minute and check your surroundings before leaving the restroom.


ImageAs I sit here, stand here, think here…

It seems nothing is right. Everything is wrong.  Negative is a way of life.

But life isn’t complicated…

Life is hard.

Life is easy.

Life is filled with difficult decisions.

Life is filled with easy decisions.

Life is filled with hurt.

Life is filled with love.

Life is filled with living.

The answers are simple, but to action the answers take great will power and a strength that doesn’t come easy.

Hold on.

Let go.







Be still.

The answer, the solution, the outcome will be the same. There is only one true answer. Easy or hard deal with it.

Take a stand.

Man up.

Stand tall.

“Go hard and dun”


It seems talking about or even mentioning death gives those around the feeling that you are morbid.

I asked the question “LIFE OR DEATH???” on Facebook and everyone thought something was wrong with me. Everyone chooses Life but why?

Understand, I am in no way considering committing suicide but I find it interesting that MOST people are very fearful of death and they have no idea what death is or what is after death (if anything)…

WHY are we all so afraid of death? Is death good or bad? Some would say “Bad!” — I would say, “How do you know?” No one really knows.

As far as I am concerned, this is one of life’s/death’s BIG questions…

Christians will tell you death is great as long as you are baptized. This is because they believe that only those baptized will end up on the right hand of Christ. They embrace the thought of death, yet most are afraid to die. Why is that???

Jehovah’s Witness will tell you there is no hell and only a few will end up on the right hand of Christ. What does that mean? Life and death is the same? What is the benefit of religion if most of us will remain here on earth?

Life is what we know and the unknown scares us! Death is the unknown factor. Why are we afraid? Because of the unknown… This is how most of us live our lives, fearful of all the unknown factors. Life has a lot of unknowns and we need to embrace them.

I am not saying go out and kill yourself but I am saying, “TAKE A CHANCE AND LIVE WITHOUT FEAR”.

I have always said if I am to die on Maxfield Avenue nothing can stop that from happening. I am not afraid of dying… I am afraid of how I will die.

We could be fearful of something/someplace far greater than what we have now.


RIU Montego Bay Jamaica

NO Internet in the room

NO room service

NO Jacuzzi

NO Internet – sorry, I said that already lol

NO white towels

For a five-star resort I had too many day one complaints.  I got to the room and the TV was on, the AC was on, the ceiling fan was on and all the lights.  This could mean they were prepared for me or this could mean RIU does not understand energy conservation.

The room was nicely prepared and to some extent inviting, however for a five-star resort there was nothing extraordinary.  The clanging of the ceiling fan forced me to turn it off, as it proved annoying.  I can’t say it was the best room I have ever been in but on the bright side, there was plenty of liquor in the mini bar and I mean bottles of Vodka, Appleton Rum and Old Tom Gin, not limited to the local Red Stripe beer, soda water and non alcoholic beverages.

The décor of the restaurants were beautiful, the food was tantalizing but it was not delicious. I like nicely seasoned food and for the most part the food taste bland.  It was difficult to get reservations to the themed restaurants, so I had most meals at the buffet hall.

The Mahoe Bay Restaurant offered the best ambience.  The restaurant has a panoramic view of the most perfect white sand beach being caressed by the calm blue Caribbean Sea with the Sandals Cays in the backdrop.  If you visit, ensure that you eat upstairs to see this really nice view of the property and the beach.

I did get the opportunity to have something from two of the 3 theme restaurants, Little Italy and the Steak House restaurants.  By far my favorite was the Steak House…  Even though the restaurant was fully booked I got a taste of the much-needed steak and shrimp kabob.  That did put a smile on my face.  Thanks Chef!  I must say the hotel and its staff are very willing and accommodative…

The entertainment was really “entertaining” lol

At 9:30 pm, the entertainment area was the place to be.  I must say the nightly shows were exceptionally executed and in some cases I laughed with such vigor that I was left in stitches.  Excellent work to the entertainment co-ordinators!

THE BAR!!!  The drinks at the bar flowed every night without a hitch! The bartenders (Andre and David) proved to be very knowledgeable and capable.  These guys mixed drinks and engaged the visitors at every moment.  They struck lively conversations that are filled with laughter.  These guys were smooth as they made each and every guest feel comfortable and welcomed at the Coconut Bar. It was obvious that these guys where not only co-workers but also great friends and it showed in their team work. Congratulations to management for hiring two of RIU’s best ambassadors.

For Jamaica’s Independence Day, the hotel had an entire day of celebration.  There was a marching band bellowing melodious music…  The guests were given temporary tattoos of the Jamaican flag (didn’t get mine lol)…  There was an exquisite buffet of Jamaican dishes and fruits…  You know all the usual which included ackee and saltfish, jerk chicken, stew pork (yeah… I said stew pork), pear (avocado), jackfruit and much more.  As always — I am proud to be JAMAICAN…

The beach!!! YEAAHHHH!!! Pity there wasn’t a Jacuzzi…

Saw the floating sea shops with sales men peddling their wares of trinkets.

“All in all” my stay was enjoyable but I still think a Jacuzzi is needed in the main pool area and Internet in the rooms.

Some things to try while at RIU

  • Make sure you have a drink at the Coconut Bar with Andre and David.
  • Make sure to check out the nightly entertainment. Show starts at 9:30pm.
  • Make sure to visit Margaritaville.  RIU provides transportation to and from so go get your groove on.
  • Make sure to lie on the beach for a few hours.  Read a book while laying just on the edge of the water soaking in the sun.
  • Make sure to eat at the Steak House restaurant.  The shrimp kabobs are a must have.
  • Make sure to do the disco… Note, if you can’t dance, you can entertain yourself by watching those who can and can’t dance and have a drink while you laugh lol


I had the opportunity to eat at The Truck Stop a few nights ago… The Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) speaks about Ritzy to Roadside – this was straight Roadside.

The ambience was really cool.  It was outdoors under a huge tree over looking the traffic on West Kings House Road .

Now you need to take in to consideration that this place is in the heart of Kingston, so its best to enjoy the surrounding distractions.  This includes the traffic, the lights, the horns and anything else that the city throws at you.

Candles where place on the table as the night fell making it a little more personal (maybe even romantic).

The music was barely noticeable.  Soft and soothing… it was a place for conversation.  Can you hold a decent conversation??? Lol

The food was ok but Jerk should be spicy off the fire.  Truck Stop’s jerk was not really spicy but you were given the jerk sauce to spice it to your taste.

My waitress was really cool.  She was very helpful

‘All in all’ the place was nice but the food wasn’t the greatest…
