This blog entry is second in the Origin series and chronicles my story from Trinidad & Tobago the Victory street years, and is best understood in chronological sequence. If you haven’t already done so, read the first entry Origins: Early Life to get caught up. After moving from Mayaro, I spent several years at 6 Victory Street, Arima. A narrow unpaved street branching off the Eastern Main Road, with middle-class homes leading to the Trinidad Textile Manufacturing Co Ltd (TTMC) to the top of the street, affectionately known as just textile.
For quite some time I have been envisioning leaving a legacy for my boys. Concepts swirling in my cortex are a cookbook with all their favourite eats that I’ve made over the years or a short story anthology of my life in Trinidad along with my eventual migration to America.
