I am the complex creole

My context is the Caribbean
An archipelago crocheted into a crossbreed
Of carnival, class, and commesse
Cognisant of Columbus
And the Commonwealth
That created these confused colonies

“"Oh Idon’t want a sad life" cried Morea passionately. I would rather not lived at all than have a maimed fettered existence for my lot. I want to be bright and enjoy all the beautiful things of life and feel that I have a share in them all, the sunshine, and the color and the sky, and music and art— and all the pleasures I have scarcely tasted yet. Oh I love life! I pray for a long, bright, happy life— with plenty to love me, and never to know what it is to weary of everything as some people do. I can’t understand them.— Life has so many splendid possibilities, it is such gladness only to be . Often when I wake in the morning to the fresh sweet air, and the twittering of birds and the knowledge that "another blue day" lies stretched out before me I kiss my own arms with very delight in it all, and thankfulness that God has put me here in the beautiful world. Oh I want to be happy all the while. Is no one happy always?” An excerpt from the book “With Silent Thread” by Frieda Cassin

“Perhaps the epitome of a Trinidadian is the child in the third row class with a dark skin and crinkly plaits who looks at you out of decidedly Chinese eyes and announces herself as Jacqueline Maharaj.”

Hahaha yes!

With a gun pointed to his head during the 1990 coup attempt, Arthur Napoleon Raymond Robinson, the third Prime Minister of T&T, was given a telephone and ordered by Jamaat-al-Muslimeen insurgents holding him hostage in Parliament to tell the Army to back down. Instead, Mr Robinson shouted into the receiver, “Attack with full force!”For his defiance, he was beaten by his captors and shot in the kneecap – an injury that would stay with him for the rest of his days.In 1987, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Honour from California Lutheran University. On a state visit to Nigeria in 1991 he was made Chief of Ile Ife by the Ooni of Ife. He was a Freeman of the cities of Los Angeles and Thousand Oaks and holds Venezuela’s highest award - the Simon Bolivar Award. 

RIP, to one of the last true statesmen of Trinidad and Tobago; our former President and Prime Minister.

RIP sir. You were one of our truly great leaders.
