October 22, 1991

22 October

Today I got a letter from Jay Petersen. I was surprised because Elvirus gave it to me at school. Yesterday Frances said she went to the post office and there was no mail. I think they just checked for her. She got a Cable & Wireless phone bill. They might have just put that in the box this morning. You never know with Frances. She might have even forgotten to go or ask.

I also got a letter from Jane Aldridge. She is very good about writing. I enjoy her friendship.

Today I did a lot at the apartment. Mrs. Garaway told me that Brewster was going to come to fix my electric cooker between 2:00 and 3:00. I decided to wait and not go back to school. He never came.

I napped in between reading Bible chapters, studied Kwéyol, read Teaching with TEACH, worked on my NYU application, washed my batik shirt, made lime squash, and wrote to Chris Sharples.

September 2, 1991

I used my camcorder on my flight from St. Vincent to Dominica to take aerial views of St. Lucia and Dominica. I’m sure you can find new better footage but this is what I saw in September 1991. The titles in the video are the exact notes I had in a notebook of my videos from that time.

17 October

The only illness I’ve had recently (since the St. Lucia vomitting) is abdominal pains accompanied by fever. It happened twice. I think it’s being caused by the tinned ravioli. I’m going to mention it to Dr. Allport on Friday to see what her response is. The first time it happened I thought I might have a problem with my appendix.

Today on the radio I heard Prince’s “Diamonds and Pearls” debuted at number 5. “Cream” is number 11 and his song for Martika is top ten. I’m waiting for Ann Marie to send the tape.

I’m also still waiting for a package from Jane. I’m going to call her on Saturday to hear how she is. I’m assuming a letter is on the way and lying somewhere between here and the U.S. I haven’t heard from her since I saw her in June. 

I biked to Calabishie on Saturday (12). It only took 75 minutes. I went to Hempstead beach with Ingrid and others. She came to the cultural show on Monday.

August 1991

On the back of the photo I wrote Guayave, Grenada, but the correct spelling is Gouyave. According to Kay Showker, Gouyave is a fishing town. There is also a major nutmeg processing station there.
