Review
A Sea of Wisdom….my new friend, January 30, 2005
Reviewer: Audrey A. Burgess (San Francisco, CA, USA)

The Authors authenticate my Jamaicanness in speech, color, food and mood. A Sea of Wisdom is my new friend and I reach for it often to feel the Caribbean sea on my skin and taste the spices, to smell the burning cane fields and see the blue mountains blooming coffee, guinep, breadfruit, naseberry and rose apple trees…aaahhh.

Being transported so suddenly to my childhood memories from the humor and appeal of reading a Sea of Wisdom on my morning commute, has really opened my eyes to the simplicity of the wisdom of the proverbs, which are still meaningful today in this beautiful city of San Francisco, I now call ‘Home’.

Growing up in a paradise like Jamaica is an unforgettable experience which is usually lost to my everyday life consciousness while living in a modern, vibrant American city. It is so spiritually and psychologically delicious to see my native language in print…
