"Finding inspiration for a collection is a very tedious and thought-provoking process. One must search the soul for instances and memories that touch, that resonate ..... a moment ...... it came in 2015 .... the illness, death, and disposal of my mother's aches ...... down Moruga I went to bid farewell and to take her back to where "She Ting Was She Own" That trip to Moruga was one of nostalgia. It brought back childhood memories of picking and eating zabouca under the zabouca tree, cocoa tea, fresh fish broth, the sight of country folk dancing the cocoa, listening to the adults speaking patois and the smell of the sea breeze. I joined a lime with some ole folks and enjoyed a meal of boiled provision and sautéed cod fish. This went down with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice and I was in heaven. It was too sweet when I listened to the sound of John “Buddy “Williams singing “Mama Don’t You Cry”, “Take Me Down To Los Rios” and Fitz Vaughn Bryan belting out “Me Ting Is Mine” It connected the dots of my family’s heritage. “She Ting” became “Me Ting” I was hooked and I promised my soul I had to go back."
