My favorite thing about BBQ is Brisket! 🍖 That is the lower chest of beef or veal, so juicy, so tender! While I was at the Big Swamp Smoke Off I got to try over two dozen different briskets 🤤 Soooo delicious! #DavidIsFlorida
The Colosseum was rated one of the most visited sites in the world! Completed in 80ad it could hold up to 80,000 spectators used for gladiator contested and even mock sea battles. It was covered entirely of white marble built by slaves taken from the recently conquered Jerusalem. I love going at night because there are no crowds and the up lighting is beautiful! It’s a brutal history, but I feel it’s important to acknowledge the events and reflect on the history so we can learn from the past about the tragedies of racial animosity, glorifying violence, and religious oppression. I love how traveling exposes you to so many different cultures, traditions, and histories.
It’s been so chilly lately and all I want to do is snuggle up in bed all day long. And drink lots of hot cocoa with tiny marshmallows. And binge watch Netflix till dinner time. But I’m going to drag my booty out of bed and get to work. Productivity, here I come!...In about 10 more minutes.
TRAVEL & TRAGEDY BACK HOME: Been taking some time away from the internets to focus on the things that truly matter. About a week ago, we lay my beloved Uncle Wardie to rest. He passed suddenly, without warning, so the departure of such a bright spark and such a lively spirit still feels like a cruel joke.
My uncle, perpetual smiler-- and my frequent dance partner at family functions-- loved to party, so it was only fitting that his homegoing was filled with joy, music, and fervent rug-cutting. We celebrated his life in a way that only 🇯🇲Jamaicans🇯🇲 could: there were multiple DJs spinning classic dancehall and reggae tracks, enough jerk chicken to feed an army, and tables being slammed as infinite games of dominoes were played. Swipe for more photos and video to see what I mean.
There were tears, but also laughter, and so much love I could burst. I was deeply honoured to read his eulogy and recount the accomplishments of this beautiful soul. One of the most difficult aspects of long term travel is being away from home when tragedy strikes, but I'm so glad I was able to send off my dear Uncle Wardie in style, and spend this difficult time with my amazing family. Not only have I gained a renewed appreciation for life, love, and relationships, but also a refreshed resolve to walk in my purpose and uplift the things and people that matter. Rest in power Howard, Wardie, Jah-wards. ❤️

~What if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart.
Don’t let this happen~
