I was scheduled to do a local TV appearance this morning. But I got bumped. I’m not mad. Well, any non-morning person who has to be up at the crack of morning and sensible enough to navigate traffic AND get her thoughts lined up in correct order on about 3 hours of sleep and one cup of coffee is going to be a little bit mad. But I understand the ways of television…and election season (not saying that that has anything to do with anything, just saying). Sigh. Yes, it is election season in Antigua and Barbuda, albeit a blessedly short one. Hopefully we’ll act in the best interest of the country and hopefully that’s not just sleep deprivation talking.
Anyway, I’m not here for that. I’m here to plug the things I would have plugged on the morning show.

Other things literary in Antigua and Barbuda.
Such as the opportunities and initiatives that have thrived, in spite of an enabling environment, and others, like the Antigua and Barbuda International Literary Festival, that have withered on a limb for want of one.

Thanks to the morning show producer for the invitation and for offering to give some airtime to Wadadli Pen and Jhohadli in spite of having to bump me due to time constraints. Grumpy morningness aside, I’m not entitled to any airtime at all, so give thanks.
