Walking Into My Past
Country Road,
St. Michael, Barbados

My youth took me to this place plenty of times. It was my task to pick up my grandmother’s welfare check. Even though I did not relish the waiting in line, the big plum tree in the back of the premises was a welcomed treat after. And if that was not enough, the countless tamarind trees near The Sugar Bond trees kept a little boy like me busy.

As always, my grandmother would give me 10 cents for my troubles. So all in all, the Welfare Office was not a bad deal after all.
