As a terrible storm batter the beautiful island from which I was born, Jamaica the land of wood and water, memories of my early childhood awaken. . I loved my travels to my friends house….that could only begin after I had bathed and tidle myself, my way of saying tidy ..(for those now scratching your heads). I would leave my grandmother’s house, walking down a woodsy path, praying that there were no wild dogs in sight. The walk wasn’t very long at all but felt like an eternity. I was getting close when I came to the bottom of the hill. Walking up the hill, mi smell di curry weh de pon di stove. I knew that I was in for a good time. Every time that I went to my childhood friends home, there was always food cooking, music playing, and people coming round from all parts of the neighborhood. Before nights end, there would always be stories by the fire….my favorite; ANANCY. I loved it……He was very clever ? and always had me laughing. I have come across ANANCY stories on the web and would like to share one with you. Enjoy!!
Not sure if this is a real picture of ANANCY….but thought this little guy was cute.
