Rosemarie Stone - A story of love and courage
Rosemarie Stone - A story of love and courageHer appearance on the popular television interview recently sent shock waves through many Jamaicans unused to such candour about a subject that is still taboo in some quarters. But for author Rosemarie Stone, widow of the late lecturer Carl Stone, the time had come to start talking publicly about how she contracted the dreaded HIV virus from her husband, and the subsequent nightmarish proportions her life assumed.

Roving with Lalah : Water delivery day in Harmons

There is no harmony in Harmons whenever the water truck comes around.

"Gyal, kirout! Memba a me first did deh yah so!" shouted Lillian, a 40-something-year-old woman with a pronounced lisp and surprisingly long toenails. She waved her hands frantically and then kicked Munchie's bucket that was under the pipe being filled. Now Munchie, a loud, fiery woman in her early 20s didn't take kindly to this at all.

Last week Lalah stops in Harmons. Read more at http://jamaica-gleaner.com/gleaner/20070517/news/news1.html

Pieces of the Past: Get the Book

You have enjoyed it on-line, now it is time to purchase your copy of the book, Pieces of the Past by Dr. Rebecca Tortello at Amazon.com

Enjoy the latest article in the series on-line, "A Time to Die
Death rituals", at http://www.jamaica-gleaner.com/pages/history/.

"Death rituals like those related to labour and delivery were not banned during slavery and so they served as a means of cultural preservation. Unlike birth rituals, however, although death rituals have also largely been replaced by Western conventions, some traditions remain strong. In addition, as with the birth of a child, death and burial are still ways of bringing family and friends together"
