This start of the year certainly took a toll on all of us. We went from planning for the future to restraining ourselves from losing our minds! I think it is safe to say that we're never in control of our lives. There is a saying, “Man plans, God laughs” I’m not sure where it came from, but it surely makes you think. We had planned to launch the magazine in 2 different cities this year, however we can all agree that our safety and health come first. Overall, I am willing to postpone all events until next year, hoping that we will be back to a level of normalcy that will permit us to gather once more. We will survive this, just like we survived many pandemics before this one.
On a brighter note, I am so elated to know that our creatives have not stopped working, this issue dubbed The Cultural Issue, puts emphasis on our Caribbean brothers and sisters in the creative world showcasing their work and masterpieces. Our cover model Kim Theodore is to be applauded in her effort of developing her God given talent of painting. We simply asked and she delivered. With her art we wanted to honor all Caribbean creatives who never stop working. Creatives we salute you!
We’ve also had the pleasure of featuring some amazing fashion spreads from around the world. Our favorite happens to be the “SAY IT LOUD” shoot by Karl M. Lee, a long-time contributor of the magazine who never stops to amaze us. Moreover, our picks from the Kavyar jungle did not disappoint.
We would like to thank our sponsors and contributors for this particular issue and hope you continue to support us in the near future.
We hope that you and your loved ones are staying safe and we can’t wait to see you in person once this is all over. We hope you enjoy our 38th issue.
