This book reveals what it means to have a belief system. Even though you may not remember the sermon, or message or lecture, something subconsciously settles into our psyche to stimulate reflection, the 'aha' moment or just a smile. The smile however should not be overlooked. It unites our past with the events of the present and the synthesis symbolizes that there is now a conscious realization that life has meaning. So 'holding on to the broken pieces' takes us to shore. What we used to struggle with is still a focus of some struggle, but we can see clearer now. This book shows that in the midst of the storms of life, we can still find ways to express ourselves and respond with humor. Humor gives us the psychic space and presence of mind to retreat and take stock, but always to go forward, to carry on with renewed hope. Laughter cures many ills both physical and spiritual. God laughs, sometimes at us, but I believe mostly with us. The Supreme Being is 'a-listening all night long' and therefore sometimes help comes from the least suspected places and persons: like the boy who was marginalized because he could not swim or even float, yet became the one who saved two of his friends from drowning We become motivated to help by stories that bring insight and fresh vision to the sufferer; by the ability to confront our mortality with irony and jest, as in the humorous "Tombstones" mentioned, and the suggested themes for guidance and survival that emanate therefrom. I present much of the book in conversational style, with some Caribbean slangs, to stimulate your own reflections, smiles or laughter. Enjoy it nuh
