Omo Osun @ Paria River

Here is Big Mami, in the Paria River on the North Coast of Trinidad. I went up there with some friends a few months back.

What this picture can’t tell you, is that I was singing for Mama Osun at the top of my lungs.

The smile is the pleasure of going to my Mother’s home. I worked to get there too. To get to Paria, it’s a three hour drive from my house, then a three hour hike. The hike to Paria is considered one of the most difficult in Trinidad, and one of the most challenging.

A year earlier, I was walking with a cane.
