Annie P and Me

Kingston, Jamaica, 1976

Found this in one of my photo albums. I was a freshman in college when this was taken, and had gone home for the Christmas vacation. I was the age my son is now. That's my friend Annie in the blue top. One of my little cousins is on my lap. This photo was snapped on the back stairs at 37 Paddington Terrace, the house where I came of age, and for which this blog is named. Check out our afros. We're just a coupla cool chicks catching the sun. Annie P died earlier this year (I wrote about it here). Seeing this picture brought a whole rush of memories. Wish I could go back and do some things differently, but that's a useless thought, isn't it?


  1. You and your daughter look alike!

  2. You all look so beautiful with your beautiful afros. Ah, yes, I wish that too - but have yet to find the rewind button.
