The Rio Grande
by A. Beverly
I had a very interesting childhood growing in Jamaica.
I was born in the hills of St Catherine. At three months, my parents (mother, a civil servant, father a businessman) my mother was transferred about 14 miles south from where I was born.
Then at five (5) going on six (6) years, she was transferred to the easternmost section of the island; hence the title of this little story :-)
I went back to school in Kingston
and in St Catherine.
I am just giving you an idea of my connection to one of the most beautiful places on this side of the world.
I am in my early sixties, and regardless of the changes in the world and on my island, nothing can take away my love for and the joy I feel as a Jamaican
There is so much to my story, which I consider to be an interesting and eclectic one, if I may say so.
So thank you for allowing me to share.Editor's Note
