Bouncin' from Bermuda

Beautiful Bermuda

Beautiful Bermuda. With all that has been going on with Hurricane Katrina, most of my attention has been focused on collecting supplies and doing what I can to try and aid the survivors of such a devastating event. But I would be remiss if I didn't send some love to an island that opened it's hospitable arms and welcomed me like the prodigal child returning home.

I visited the island from September 1st to September 4th for my first booksigning and a live radio broadcast.

Love to True Reflections Bookstore located in a quaint walkdown in parish of Hamilton surrounded by Bistros and quiet places to sit and reflect. Also only a stone's throw away from a HUGE Louis Vuitton store. Can't be mad at that. Valerie Young and Michelle really took care of a sistah and I will forever be grateful.

Also big holla's going out to the staff of the Hott 1075 Radio Station who let me take over the midday radio waves and made a little black girl from Chicago feel like a star. Bootise, Nefertari, Isadore, Brittney and Miss Thang .... please let me return the favor when you come to my city.

For those that have never been, I recommend running your toes through the pink sand and splashing in the blue waters. Don't leave without taking a tour and learning some of the rich history. Hangout at the Swizzle Inn where most who patronize swagger out. Eat a fish sandwich and visit the coves. BUT WHATEVER YOU DO, don't think you can out drink a Bermudian, 'cause baby .... on that little island they know how to knock 'em back. And I love that about them. On an island that's extrodinary, lives a people that outshines it by miles.


  1. Sound like you had fun! Promise me, next time you go can I be your most humble escort? puleeeze

    btw, I love the change of pic in your profile, did I ever tell you how BEAUTIFUL you are??? well I'm telling you now, you are sooooo dangggg (Sunday I don't cuss) BEAUTIFUL!!!

  2. Congratulations on your first book signing!
    Couldn't have picked a more beautiful place.

  3. You bounced from Bermuda with a bang! Congrats on your book signing. Keep us posted on how things are going. The best is yet to come.

  4. Wow! That's special having a book signing in Bermuda. It's a place I would love to go but I have been fearful of flying for long periods of time...becasue of 911. I've been to Chicago, Las Vegas, Washington, D.C. but the whole time I was so tense...My daughter and husband doesn't understand my fear-I don't even but I would love to go to Bermuda...hopefully I can get the nerves to take my daughter for her graduation present. I'm glad your signing went well...

  5. I've been to several islands but never Bermuda. I must put it on my "Islands To See List." Congrats on the first book signing.

  6. Sounds relaxing! Just what I need a vacation littered with quaint bistros!
