I love my Bajan Christmas. I love the ham, Christmas morning church service in conjunction with the walk through Queen’s Park. Sometimes I wonder how other cultures celebrate this most special season of the year when the entire world seems to take a breather.

Bajan musicians and artistes are feeling the impact of the global recession resulting in the shrinking of international bookings and performance revenues. This has come from the newly elected president of The Association Of Music Entrepreneurs, George Thomas.

The leaves drift and blow away
As the November wind moves and calms my soul
Wiping my tears from my face
Drying them, leaving only a very faint trace
My heart is broken in two
He's six feey under, but he was only five years young
And I stand here, delivering this poem to you
One wrong move could shatter me
But God, I wish you would break me
I just want to live beyond myself
Beyond these limitations I've found, or founded
I wish you would take me in your arms
Or maybe I'm thinking of the prince of last night's romance novel
I wish you would ruin me, thoroughly
Because if you broke me God would have to remake me
And for a while I'd be free
I wish could escape you
And the air I breathe
And the body I wear
And the face I have
