I wanted inspiration and found it in the Frank Collymore lecture last night – which also gave me an opportunity to wear my Cameroon gown.
And today I hung out with some ancestors in the gardens of the parish church in St John. They spoke to me through the whisper of the wind, through the sway of the mahogany trees and through the laughter of the children on a school trip.
I was in good company. The last prime minister of Barbados, David Thompson, is buried in the church yard.
I came away with much clarity about the main theme that will run through the course, and why I was told in a circle in April not to change the title ‘Love is Not a Reward’.
