You are the greatest!!! I am so looking forward to the gathering of many of the good folks that have befriended us and made life such a joy here in Jamaica. We're expecting some uplifting drumming and singing/chanting for a while at 6, then speaking about moving with the breeze on a One Love vibe (By the Rastafari Village). Probably some more drumming toward the end.

Tamika from the RasNatango Gallery and Garden will dramatist some readings from our book, along with Wendy, a many time visitor, now 'new resident' of her "home" Jamaica (coming up from Treasure Beach). We expect there will be a background slide show of selected photos from our lives.

I'll provide some context and be there to autograph books. We encourage you to be a Winner and purchase the raffle tickets to benefit youth in our rural hometown. We'd love to see you there!
