A beautiful day in Barbados

Today is a beautiful day in Barbados,and we do have many beautiful days.For me there is something magical about the first day that the schools 'open back'.It is not that my daughter is not going to be here with her perpetual(or is it incessant) questions that I can't answer.Actually she is still here.She is not going to school today probably because of me and the inordinate amount of time I spend on the computer.

The first day back to school after the Christmas holidays you see all the happy faces,the many school uniforms,the hustle of the ZR's and the whole interaction of people early in the morning. There was a time that I would have used the term hustle and bustle but after spending some time in bigger countries I have realized that it only looks like hustling and bustling to us.

Today is a beautiful day in Barbados,the greens look greener,the sky looks bluer and the air feels fresher.You can still hear the chirping of the blackbirds the cooing of the doves and we are even beginning to see the return of the yellow breast...We are not too bad off after all.
