Perhaps the most important reason that I write is that I have a great desire to record aspects of life, events and experiences which I think are worth keeping. I grew up in rural Jamaica in the forties. In the fifties I went to school in the capital city, Kingston, but continued to spend all my holidays at home in the country. I write from a memory of those times and those places. It is very easy to lose a sense of the past and have each generation evolve a notion of what existed at a time before the present. I consider that a tragedy.
