I was born in a tiny hamlet called Junction in St. Vincent in the West Indies. I was quiet, shy, and curious. I attended high school in the capital Kingstown, right by the sea, and was curious about the bold brawling waves rolling like wheels upon the sea: I wanted to know what moved these giant waves. In 1978, I emigrated to the United States of America and attended Los Angeles Community College and Cal State Los Angeles. My curiosity about nature and people inspired me to study geography and sociology in college. I graduated with a Master’s degree in geography and for quite some time. taught geography, off and on, within the Los Angeles and El Camino College Districts. Those assignments were quite engaging and growthful: They brought me into orbit with humanity’s surging sea and yielded much valuable insight into the system of human beings on the earth.
