The Departed

Posted on: March 7, 2008

I picked up the flight magazine from it’s regular place. Only to be pleasantly surprised by the cover. The US Airways magazine’s cover story was about Jamaica. My heart silently leapt 🙂

As I started the story and relished the wonderful kudos being poured on my fair yet violence riddled isle. I couldn’t help but think:
    How many of us Jamaicans literally flee our shores for a “betta’ life” . Yet, here I am on a plane full of American tourists fleeing not just the literal cold of the North America winter but also escaping to; 

the warmth of a special culture,

    the strength of a people,
       
        and the beauty of an island that breathes life right into your pores.

We escape to make more money, they escape to refresh their souls. What an interesting conundrum….

….that of the departed.
