We’re Celebrating!

Today, InsideJourneys, is celebrating its first anniversary. A year ago, I wrote my first post. Since then, I’ve written many more and most importantly, made several friends, who stop by everyday.

It’s been a fun year. Thanks for your support and encouragement. So pull up a chair and have a slice of this delicious cake. No, I didn’t bake this one but I can tell you it’s great.

    Awww, thank you. You seem to have settled back into your hometown well. NY was big on many things but art and fashion was always my motivation to visit. What is it like in the way of art and fashion in Jamaica? Is there a typical way of dressing or something women feel at ease in? What is the art representative of and is it as reflective as the music?

    Congratulations! One year is a great accomplishment. I’ll admit, however, with all the things going on in my life, I can’t always stop by everyday, but I do stop by every few days. I truly enjoy reading your stories and looking through some of your travel photos for which I am often inspired. Here’s to another good year and to more travels in the days ahead!

  8. Thanks, Sherry and thanks for stopping by. It’s people like you who make this journey rewarding.
    Hard to believe a year has passed already. Looking forward to sharing more experiences and photos. Love your blog as well!

  9. Yes, am settling in, still. NY is definitely big and I love it, but differently. There’s lots of art and fashion in Jamaica. I’m more into the art than the fashion though. There’s Fashion Night Out and Caribbean Fashion Week. There isn’t a typical way of dressing. We dress like we do here in summer. For art, we have the range: so-called primitive, naive, contemporary, overwhelmingly representational and flat. We have some fine ceramicists, photographers and sculptors but painters far outnumber them. Interestingly enough, the art is less about the music, though music (reggae and its derivatives) is such a big part of our lives and is what we’re known for. Much of the work is landscape, nature, African inspired, everyday scenes, etc. Hope one day you’ll come so I can show you around.

  10. Thanks, Narelle. Glad you’re here too!

  11. Congratulations on your anniversary! It’s been a wonderful journey and I wish you many more! As you can tell, I’m finally catching up on blog posts… no more excuses; especially as I keep catching a cold… Time to just push through it all and get on with life. Celebrate and enjoy your hard work Marcia! Kudos!

    Oh, please feel better, Elizabeth. It isn’t fun when to get a cold in winter.
