Laughter, the best medicine

The afternoon session was lead by Jamaican born Olive Senior, who showed us how to vary the way we write our poetry, and also read from her new novel.

The evening entertainment for Saturday night was Ricardo Keynes-Douglas (yes brother to Paul) I arrived a little late (my lift working on Caribbean time), but by all accounts he was just getting into his stride. The man has energy, it was nearly a two hour set, and people turned out to see him. The auditorim was respectably full. There are so many ways to tell ‘the English man, the Irish man and the Scottish man’ jokes. Just change them to ‘the Guyanese, the Trinie, and the Montratian’. He was real breath of fresh air and I laugh out loud with everyone else.
