This Made My Day Today.

My friend from the UK via Afghanistan  sent me this today and it totally made my day. Thank you Aimal  for being my brother. I am totally blessed when it comes to my few close friends.

How cool is that?

RIP Uncle George

No picture needed.

I learned today that yesterday one of the unsung heroes of T&T – Dr. George Dixon (MD) of Couva and Balmain passed away. He is embellished in my childhood as Uncle George but I know he was much more than that.

Uncle George was one of those doctors who identified with his community and chose to remain in it and make a difference. His easygoing nature and openness of spirit were never forced. He looked on everyone who came to him not just as a doctor but as someone who genuinely cared.

If a patient couldn’t afford him that was never an obstacle – he was as gracious to the rich as to the poor. You would be treated even if your only payment ended up being a bag of fruit you gave him or nothing at all.

My Auntie Brenda May Dixon was there by his side through everything and both were always there for me and my mom. I miss you Uncle George and I hope that all of us can make a difference the way you did. RIP Dr. George Dixon.

Saint Lou Lou – Maybe You

I ran across this song and video today and it touches me deeply. So beautiful and evocative.

The Guardian UK has written about the singing twins:

With its sleepy, minor chord synths and innate sense of longing for what could have been, Saint Lou Lou’s debut single feels like the perfect end-of-summer song. In fact, the disparity between the seasons and climates infuses everything about the music made by twins Elektra and Miranda Kilbey, the pair splitting their time between the crisp winters of Sweden and the balmy summers of Australia.
