We are still in George Town. The irony is not lost on me that my last post was about "keeping time" and here we are - flubbing our departure dates. The truth is - we couldn't say goodbye to our friends just yet. We have been having a blast with Lara and Brian, Jay and Nicole (yes, they're still out here!) and our new friends, Kelly and George. We will be heading south with Kelly and George and it's great to know we'll be heading to the Caribbean with the company of another boat and a couple of great people who have become instant friends.
Across from where I sit, there is a local children's festival going on. The theme is clearly "unity" and the simple fact that we are all part of the human family. As someone who wholeheartedly believes this - it is a beautiful message to be reminded of and it's wonderful to see it being instilled in such young children. A little girl, no older than eight just sang a lively song to a Caribbean beat called "All of We Is One". Her little voice boomed over the speakers and was so precious:
"Your my brother, your my sister - all of we is one. Your from Jamaica, I'm from Bahamas - all of we is one. All of we is one family, all of we is one. All of we is one family, all of we is one."
A great reminder. No matter what color we are, no matter where we are from, we are all after the same things: friendship, community, purpose and love.
