Snapshots of Jamaica & Beyond Words

Friday, September 16, 2011


I’m on vacay, so haven’t been out and about, but I do have a few shots you might be interested in. Also, I’m Beyond Words – well not really. I’m over there today, talking about my decision to self-publish. I know, I know, two days in a row now, I’ve asked you to take another step, but bear with me.  Jeanne and I are waiting by the front door, welcome mat all laid out, for you to come in.
Imposing...it's a church, not yet painted.
A cactus island thingie close to where I live.

Look familiar? Backdrop for my cover.
Flower fix. You know how that goes.
If I don’t see you at Beyond Words, (mega hint) have a great weekend and meet me back here on Monday!

  6. Thanks, Michelle, I appreciate that.
    Have a great weekend and who knows what could happen in the future.

    Jeanne, it's still steamy hot here now, but will get just a bit cooler as the year winds down.

    Laura, thanks. I enjoy sharing the stuff that's off the beaten track.

  7. For some reason, I think I need to go visit Beyond Words. I don't know why. Amazing. It just fluttered in out of the blue :)

    Happy Weekend!

  10. Oh you got that damned twitter bird from the other website. I hate crap like that which floats around the screen pestering you.

  14. Laila, thanks!

    Clarissa, it does kind of look like the Kingston Public Hospital now that I think about it, but it isn't

    Good to know you're back, Holly. Thanks for dropping in.

  16. What a lovely interview on Jeanne's blog! Now I must ask ... if you live where those of us in the states want to go for a vacation, where are your wish places to travel to?

  17. Thanks, Michelle. I'd love to visit Egypt to see the pyramids. The heat might get me, but I've always wanted to visit.

  18. Me too, Sarah. Imposing is the word that comes to mind each time I look at it.

  19. Hi J.L. I found your blog from Rachael Harrie's campaigner blog, and am now your newest follower, so:

    Nice to meet you!

    As to your post: I love Jamaica! You're writing short stories related to the island? That is so cool. I can't wait to hear more.

  20. Matthew, nice to meet you too. Oh, yeah, these stories have the stuff you don't see on the nice, touristy posters.

    I still haven't gotten around to everybody in the groups I'm in for the campaign, but tomorrow's another day!

  22. I'll head over to Beyond Words.

    Thanks for the pics. It's fun and interesting to see where you live. I think I'll post some pics from where I live too.

  23. That a cool idea, DL. I'd certainly be interested.

  26. Love the photos, especially the cactus island.

  27. Alice, that's exactly how I think about that building. Maybe when they put some paint on it, it will be even more beautiful.

    Misha, I always think it should be in some desert.

    Rosalind, thanks for dropping in.
