The speck of a curved moon sent the village into its own sense of rapture. The clouds soon parted. Moonlight was like day and the village assumed a sense of purpose and anticipation. The lone radio beckoned the people to meet and share stories. Folk tales were spun into fantastic webs: spiders spoke and the lang lady hid in the bushes as Black Sam held court with his jumbie stories.

The Murphy radio was plugged into the Berec dry cell battery and the magic hour would soon approach.   Continue reading

Havana – Cuba

News Americas, LONDON, England, Fri. Aug. 28, 2015: According to the North American trade publication, Travel Weekly, US tourism to Cuba is now growing at such pace that the country is experiencing a shortage of both highly trained Cuban professional guides and non-Cuban certified tour directors to accompany the tours that US Treasury regulations require almost all US visitors to take.

It is just one indication of a situation that as this year goes on may change, if as seems likely the US Administration allows its citizens to travel to Cuba on an individual basis.  Continue reading

The bus stops at 133 Street and Liberty Avenue. The lady exits and runs to the roti shop for shelter from the rain. In no time she starts a conversation with one of the shoppers.

She has this friend who has a daughter. The problem is that the daughter was involved in a business wedding. She was supposed to divorce the man in a few weeks. But now he is refusing. He wants to stay married. She has someone else and was in the marriage only for the money. What advice can one possibly give? She wants to cut out, he wants to stay in and there are others like them. The attorneys on Liberty are refusing this one!

Astounding card magic: Penn and Teller Fool Us // Shin Lim – video

Astounding card magic: Penn and Teller Fool Us // Shin Lim – magician

Comments: Sasasaam

I have been doing magic for 12 years. I am in no way an expert but I have a deep love and appreciation for the art. And that. Was. Art. That is the card act that card magicians dream of in their wildest dreams. Sure, like P&T said, I caught a move or two. But I believe the mark of a true master is how long afterwards people want to start trying to figure it all out. For me, a 20-30 seconds of awe is bliss – an amazing act. And let me say, I never, ever want to know how the rest of that is done. Thank you Shin.
My reactions: Wow, so fast! Ooh I see what you did there. Wow, smoke, nice. Wait what? How in the heck?! Did you really do that with your mouth? Or what?! Anyway, coool! Continue reading
