From where I write my last blog of 2010, I hear the dominoes rushing over the tables and people talking rather loudly about the new year that will arrive shortly. They talk about changes, new opportunities and recovery, consolidation of all the good things that the 2010 has brought them along with passionate wishes that their baseball team will be champion again and predictions that the all important 15th birthday of their daughter will be the best day of their little girls life.
Everywhere in the Caribbean, people are in the midst of preparations for what is going to be an incredible party with family, friends and neighbors. Many delicacies will be prepared over a charcoal fire; the home cooked food will be plentiful and drinks will flow freely while people will dance on the loud rhythm of samba, salsa, merengue, reggaeton or perhaps Boney M.
When I shut down my computer in a few moments I will join all of them and quietly add my new years wishes to the list. The essence of new years celebrations is the same wherever we are. For 24 hours we all are focused on that one moment which represents all of the future. I particularly look forward to pop the cork of the bottle of champagne I saved for the occasion and to bring a toast to my friends, family and all of you who helped made the last year for all of us at Debbie’s so extremely rewarding.
I see you in a few days!
