Fixing Problems Overnight  

In the likely event, as fate would have it, you are confronted with the dilemma of a man threatening suicide and a boy getting ready to shoot himself in the foot, do ask the suicidal elder, “Please hold while I tend to the more important task of dissuading the lad from starting bad”. Heaven can wait. Hell, not so much. […]

The Broken Clock

The fact that a clock is right at least twice per day is curiously inefficient and shouldn’t be considered as evidence of accuracy or credibility. Indeed,  betting against that clock, even allowing for the times it is right, is the best thing to do. You will always come out ahead. “What if the clock has a special place in your […]

Losing Matches

A blind man in the Spectators Box at a cricket game may strike you as odd or consolation to courtesy. That he brings critical insights for which he bears a handicap may not ever cross your mind, have become faithful to the mistaken view that we see with our eyes. “We done know already that he is blind and cannot […]

Building Bridges

If we had come to the brook and found a bridge already in place, we would cross it without any reservations or accounting worry.

We are at a place mentally where we are doing […]

Fork In The Road

Prior to the fork in the road, our journey on the straight and narrow was going well. Or so we claim by, “If the fork hadn’t happened, our journey would have been assured”.  We do crave a predictable continuous pathway. What if our journey prior to the fork in the road was off course, too restrictive, and flashing red but […]

A Fisherman’s Folly

In the event it falls to you to tell The Fisherman of whispers that are not yet grumbles, I hope you will be guided not by his generosity to you, but by yours to him. His stock in trade insistently proclaimed “Fresh Fish” has mixed reviews, albeit from the genteel folks able to afford his catch and others who have […]

Jamaica’s Currency

The value of the Jamaican currency has been perplexingly elevated to whom will grace the note they have fittingly debased? It is an aspiration to die for; this much is crystal clear. Even as or if we are trapped in the cynicism of the unsavory plot to ‘deitify’ those who have given us hell, let us with all sincerity wish […]
