I'd rather be..

At Goldeneye in Oracabessa.
At my parents house sleeping.
At Miss Mae's on Hellshire beach.
At the Gap Cafe way up above Newcastle.
At Little Ochi eating lobster in a fishing boat.
I'd rather be anywhere but here in a dinky borrowed office this morning. Its raining outside and I am feeling hungry and sleepy in equal measure. Why oh why must third world lawyers offices look and smell like this?? I promise one day to set up a very swanky practice... with good Blue Mountain Coffee!
So I have tons of work to do but I thought I'd share this photo with the blogosphere. I took it on a morning like this in a place a million miles from here. At the time it didn't seem so special but I am living off those memories right now..
Can you tell I am really looking forward to being back in Jamaica and NOT having to work!! Truth be told I probably won't get to do any of those things except sleep in my parents bed. Just one more week....

Well you have a beautiful silhouette!

I'd rather be in Dubai right now, on the beach, with sand stuck in uncomfortable nether regions....

Mad Bull said...

I like the picture... nice... those don't look to be dreads to me either.

Fiyah said...

Nice. Even your silhouette is sexy!

"At the Gap Cafe way up above Newcastle."

I spent the first two years of my life at Newcastle. Got my first tooth there. Learned to walk there.

Grew up not too far away. :) I love those hills. *sigh* Now if they could only get rid of the blasted lizards.

Yes, nice frame gyal. Didn't bother to read further... I'm shallow like that.

When I was away, I used to be just like you - dying for the flight to get home. Now I'm back, it does me good to read things like what you just wrote to remind me why I live here again!

Relax. We all want to get away sometimes. Just stare at a postcard.

screw the postcard. go somewhere. really.. just get up and go.. face the consequence when you get back but sometimes you gotta just getaway.
