Living on an island is good

I am one of those people who absolutely love living in Barbados.It is not that I haven't ventured from these shores.I did sometime in the 80's spent a while in the USA.

What I did notice at that time was the newpaper headlines that I saw at times...."minorities scoring higher in SAT's" ...I would sometimes wonder if people could be so ignorant as to not know how foolish these statements......anyhow that is beside the point and irrelevant anyway.

Yes living in Barbados is good although I don't know why ...maybe it is because you can slow down the pace of everthing if you want to and stop for a while.Maybe it is because you don't get lost as an individual functioning for the sole purpose of satisfying the state.....or maybe it is because ever so often the country will pause for a while and wuk up.

No it is not that......maybe it is the soft spoken arrogance of the people who actually and really believe that Barbados is the center of the world...no really.Maybe it is the .....

No I think it is the underlying caring that everyone has...that you oftentimes don't notice but permeates even the government.Yes it is true i do believe that through it all Barbados is one caring nation despite what anyone else says.

That comes from living on an island...and a small one at that...everyone knows every one so you had better be nice.

I hate to look at the Barbados tourists site that give the history of Barbados.The ones that talk of Columbus discovering these islands and the other foolish tales that the Bob Marley and Burning Spear called 'mis-education'.I agree with them as a matter of fact Burning Spear referred to Christopher Columbus as a 'damn blasted liar'.Thank god for Rastafari.One of the funniest stories is the one of the bearded fig tree and the name Los Barbados which was supposed to mean 'the bearded one'.In the words of Gary Cole from the book reflections;The Colonization of Barbados is one of the darkest events and evil stories of modern history.Four centuries ago,Spanish and Portuguese slavers started to kidnap,kill and drive out the thousands of peaceful Indians found on the island the Indians called Ichirouganaim.The exact location of the island was a carefully kept secret but Spanish and Portuguese soldiers and sailors knew the island as the barbarous island,"Los Barb…
