Maaan, that sure was a mighty monster of a pothole that I fall into in this here foreign land recently. Oh me Lawd-oh Gawd-oh.
In there, I see ning-ning...you know, terrible troubles. It was murky and glumpy down dey. But good thing...it had a li'l bit o' water. I shine some light, and was able to see me self in the reflection. I wasn't too keen on what I see.
Frien'-o, if you see how I defy graffity and fly out mo' fast than salipenter runnin' on the surface of Abary Creek.
Outside, I stop to breathe in slow, breathe out slow. I ketch me senses. And I remember...
...that time when I return home to Guyana for good, how lonely and miserable I been. Then I remember how I decide to start liking where me was, instead o' looking for what I miss about The Island that I remigrate from.
I make up me mind. I gon channel some o' Pollyanna attitude. Now, I know many out there think that she is unreasonably optimistic. I wasn't planning to be like that. I was only going to take some o' she vibes and work it into me lifestyle.
I begin to do a set o' things that make me feel I was in a good place.
So here me is, in this here foreign land, being carer for Ma, remembering all the things I do back home to recover from falling into potholes.
I gon make that list and share with you soon.
Cheerio for now. Do something nice for you today. Plenty love, neena.
P.S. If you want a li'l peek into what I write about returning home...check it out here:
