I had been playing the guitar, primarily by strumming chords for accompaniment, nigh onto 60 years, before I knew what a Staff, Breve, Quaver or Clef were.

In 1970, my brother-in-law gave me “An Easy Way to Guitar” tutoring book which I promptly stowed away.

Maybe it is the utter drama involved in getting on a flight or boat that makes Tobago a destination of interest. For years I have been hearing conversations like “Boy you lucky to get on.” A direct flight to Timbuktu and a rocket to the moon might be easier options.

As a coverall wearer who worked in the Pointe-a-Pierre refinery in my youthful days and later in the oil and gas producing fields in Forest Reserve as a petroleum engineer for Texaco Trinidad Inc, permit me to share a few thoughts.

Ancel Roget’s statement “take your rig and go” translates into “take your jobs and go.”

We are living in strange times in T&T with high levels of crime, etc. One of the components we as a nation can boast of and not be surprised about is bad management. We are living and seeing it daily.

On the path to self-realisation, we must realise that man remains subject to all negative emotions and behaviour until he reaches perfection like Jesus Christ. We who are less than perfect must expect that we will err on our path to liberation.
