Hi Everyone 🙂

Since this is the week following Hero’s Day, I decided to show you a part of Jamaica’s culture; a music genre born here, Dancehall. The song for today is “Needle Eye” by Spice, this is a Gyal Chune, which simply means it’s a song (tune) made for the ladies to show off their dancing skills. Take a listen but beware, it’s explicit.

It’s one of my favourites 😀

Hello 🙂 I want to thank Terry from Through The Lens of My Life for tagging me to do the “Love in Ten Sentences” event, I love a challenge and I’m trying to sharpen my poetry skills so I’m going to give this a try. For all who don’t know, I’m a drummer and percussionist. I love it.

Love is the pain.
Love is the concentration.
Love is perfecting it.
Love is getting lost

None can stop love.
Love! when it hits.
Drumming, is my love.

My favourite quote on love is Continue reading Love In 10 Sentences

A Year with L'Acadco

I’m a very sentimental person, so I find myself harboring things as memories, be it pictures, flyers, ticket stubs…I keep a lot of them. My friend Cespo gave me that stick; he broke it playing the djun djuns at a company rehearsal, exactly one year 

Happiness? Does it come in a box?

How to make happiness:

  1. Listen to your favourite songs, sing along.
  2. Dance it out (I can’t dance either but that’s not the point.)
  3. Lay on any flat surface & stare upwards, breathe.
  4. Go hang out with your friends, go be in the company of people you love.
  5. Write about that thing that’s got you down.
  6. Drink some tea.
  7. Cry about it.
  8.  Hug it out.
  9.  Forgive.
  10. Remember but move on.

Being

Why are emotions so stressful? I don’t want to overthink. What do I want? I want happiness to flow through me, to disperse the what ifs. To be one with my surroundings, just float, and enjoy the feeling of being. xShida
