In Praise of Wisdom: The Things My Grandmother Would Say
My grandmother was a wise woman. By word and deed, the matriarch of my family taught us all about life. She passed her insights on to my mother who, in turn, shared them with me. Like many Barbadian women, my grandmother was fond of proverbs, dishing out these pearls with a liberal hand. When I think of my grandmother, I think of the sensible sayings that guided her steps. I see how, steadily and surely, I am walking the very same path.
