magnificence of the changing scenery informs us that
a time to remember!
A time to embrace and savor the transformation
of a sensational season called "Fall".
am fascinated by the beauty
of the green foliage that becomes a rainbow of brilliant
colors; which changes to a blaze of orange, burgundy,
gold, red, yellow, brown, and even purple. Oh,
what a truly lovely sight.
embrace the many changes that transpire throughout this
month; the newness, the subtle dreaded darkness that
comes ohhh to soon, and even the downward turn the
temperature takes as the night air becomes crisper and
chillier. What a spectacular time of year this lovely
is the time to expand into the purity of your beings, to get back into routine
and follow along the pathway toward fulfilling your goals. November, most importantly is the beginning of the holiday season,
a time to share, to give thanks, to express love and appreciation, to spend
time with family and good friends, and to treasure what is truly sacred in
hope this lovely November ( "Fall") I will experience more of what is (to some extent)
sacred to me: having a clear calendar, absolutely no commitments, and just
chilling at home on my favorite sofa snuggled under a blanket with some wine,
Lindt chocolate and great reggae and neo soul music - from the likes of Bares
Hammond, Tarrus Riley, Raheem DeVaughn, Ledisi, Michell Ndegeocello, and even Vikter Duplaix
- just to name a few.
enjoy this lovely season!
Sunday, November 1st we attended the
Caribbean Students Scholarship Fund, Inc. (CSSF
Inc.) Fashion Show and Fundraiser featuring
Designer Robert Young, The CLOTH, and it was truly
nice. We were somewhat late due to the
Daylight Saving Time Change, but I must say we
were absolutely glad to have made it because the
fashions were gorgeous.
affair Designer Robert Young has with The CLOTH is
so very apparent, his pieces are relaxing and
cool, as well as beautiful, and some very
though all the models were beautiful, we were
pleasantly surprised to see 2 of the male models
who we have known for a number of years now, and
who we never knew were models. Funny, their
name currently slips my mind, but they were the
highlight of the show in my opinion. They
were savvy and in their own individual uniqueness
displayed Robert's exceptional designs of the
Cloth for men. They were fantastic, and so
were all the female models.
Team had a large crowd at this Fundraiser,
actually all their tickets were gone (sold out)
prior to the day of the show, so we are delighted
they were able to raise funds to present to the
lucky 2010 Caribbean Students scholarship
winner/s. Congratulations to the entire CSSF
Inc. Team for a JOB WELL DONE and for a GREAT
SUCCESS. Their hard work certainly paid

a while since I shared anything with you regarding
"On The Music", so here is my
opportunity to share what I experienced in
Trinidad a few months ago. Actually, it was
so much about the family on this trip, that we didn't
get an opportunity to really check out the
music scene. However, one memory
sticks in my mind, and it's of Singer Phil Collins song
"Just One More Night" redone by Reggae
Artist " Busy Signal" entitled "One More
Signal's "One More Night' was so popular in
Trinidad that it seemed at any given moment if you
stood still for a second the song was whirling
through the air, and echoing throughout the entire
island. I guess everyone had it playing in
their vehicles in bars (rum shops/snackettes), and in their homes
constantly.) Everyone I spoke to
simply adored this song.
were all the way up in the Toco area in Trinidad
(many call it the bush), and sure enough "One
More Night" was blasting out of the
bars,/ rum shops and
snackettes. It was amazing
to me that this little song was so popular.
Needless- to- say, Busy Signal was in Trinidad
while we were there for
the biggest Independence Day Celebration along with
Machal Montano and many other great soca and
reggae artists, and
the frenzy around this concert was incredible.
Everyone had to go see Busy Signal, and from all
the reports about the crowds, they certainly did!
thing about this was earlier this year I saw my
vybing to a few songs, he later shared with me that it
was Busy Signal's "Unknown Number",
and "Trading Places" he proceeded to tell me "other artists
better watch out, because Busy Signal is on his
way to becoming a big star".
Wow...was he right!
have to repeat what Todd said in my own little way
"Busy Signal is going to be hot"!
Actually, his songs are topping many music
charts around the world. Check out

the families who lost their loved ones by the
hands of the Serial Killer in Cleveland
Ohio. Approximately 11 female bodies were
found this week on the killer's property.
It's so sad that all these women were missing
and there were no media coverage of their
disappearance, none on the popular Nancy Grace's
show on CNN nor any other show.
