It is only when we forget all our learning that we begin to know.
Henry David Thoreau

With a passion for life and a quest for discovering new things I present to you a taste of my life experience from my first 50 years of living with the anticipation of there being many more years of discovery and growth.

I consider myself very blessed for the life experience of an early childhood and youth, growing up on the island of Grenada (gra-NEH-da), West Indies.

My life experience since coming to the United States includes 4 years served in the US Navy and 20+ years in Commercial Aviation as an Aircraft Maintenance Technician.  I have a BA degree in Religion and Graphic Design and a passion for music.  I’ve studied Classical Guitar and love music of all genres.

Other hobbies/interests include being a mobile DJ, working on my boat which I live on, enjoying the company of my wonderful dogs and just learning and discovering through whatever medium presents itself.

Do join me on me journey of documenting my life-experiences; both from the past and yet to come.

  1. http://www.pspyh.com (I did our harbour website too) I love living out here -the harbour website shows our history of built from sunken ships ..thanks for your interest – do you have any picts from your canal boat years. I have a friend who lived on one for several years in UK before she moved to France

  2. I don’t know if this is something you are interested in, but I have just nominated you for a Very Inspiring Blogging Award. My intent in accepting and nominating others is to work to increase blog traffic. I would be delighted if you chose to accept, but if you prefer not to I surely do understand. You can read my nomination post and the rules on my blog if you are interested.

  3. Thank you for the nominating me – that is quite the compliment and I appreciate and will work on complying with the nomination post rules. A good challenge for me; thank you.

  4. Your harbour looks an amazing place to live. A unique history too. Which house boat is yours? How long have you lived there? I have lots of pics on my old computer. I will up date when I get coordinated. We settled on the llangollen Canal in North Wales before we moved to our field. ,,

  5. Thanks for coming in to see me at Steve Says…come again, stay a while – have a wee drink even. Happy blogging 🙂 Steve…

  6. “Grenada” caught my eye while scanning through my Reader because I was back on active duty then so I naturally wanted to see the rest on the story. And I hope you’ll have more to say on this since you have a unique perspective.

    On another note, something I only picked up on this morning, your Navy service. Well, I’d known you served (thanks for the comment on Cradle of Liberty) but hadn’t connected it so fully to my history. My father was an ADC who crew chiefed on a P2 squadron out of Puerto Rico – before Grenada – but then in retirement was in maintenance with an East Coast airline. It’s always interesting how parts of one person’s life weaves in and out of the lives of others forming little connections. Again, thanks for your service.

    I’ll probably be back at some later date to comment on my “boat envy” – the boatswain’s mate in me rearing his head.

  7. Thanks & thanks for your service too. My Dad was a Bosun’s Mate in WWII – I was an AT3. I do have more to say on the Grenada stuff and hope to at some time -the full story is complicated – Maurice would have been voted in had he had elections -his second in command was evil and hated by most -Maurice though Socialist in essence was also interested in US relations -the timing of the invasion was everything – it was popular with most Grenadians because Maurice had just been assassinated by Coard’s people. Maurice will always be a hero in Grenada – and the USA for the most part is welcomed by most because of the timing. My understanding of the invasion from those I’ve heard from in the military is that it was one of the first truly joint service operations and one of the least prepared for. A great victory for Reagan and Grenada alike but more by chance than by plan. I know I am extremely grateful for the Americans coming in. So thank you for your part in that :). if you take a look at my photography page on the photo101 assignment for home my boat, Higgins boat from WWII is pictured 🙂 . I plan to do a couple of pages on it on my regular site once it’s up and running.
