ARCHITECTS OF DESTINY to be released at Caribbean Fine Arts (CAFA) Fair

Architects of Destiny is a collection of poetry, prose and musings that has been written over a tumultuous period of my life. The roller-coaster ride that I was prized with has taught me much about myself, the people I am surrounded by and those I chose or chose not to foster relationships with.

I am not afraid to say that I am constantly searching for LOVE and in doing so I recognize that such fulfillment comes with knowing that the embracing of unconditional offerings does warrant much vulnerability.

My journey, albeit not yet completed as at the time of writing this short work, has enlightened me and nurtured my confidence and self-assurance in ways that can never be fully understood; not even by me.”
