Book Excerpt On The Guidance Counsellor’s Handbook by Denise N. Fyffe

How does Education and Gender impact on work?

Feature on The Jamaican Guidance Counsellor’s Handbook by Author Denise N. Fyffe

Introduction It should be made particularly apparent that there is no separate distinction between the roles and responsibilities of a school counsellor. Seemingly, no understandable approach was identified to distinguish or separate what are roles, versus, what are responsibilities. What can be said however is that responsibilities are dependent on the type of role that … Continue reading Feature on The Jamaican Guidance Counsellor’s Handbook by Author Denise N. Fyffe

Book Feature on The Island Journal by Denise N. Fyffe

Jamaicans consider themselves spiritually blessed as they have the most churches per square mile. Jamaica also has the most talented people in music, arts and athletics and are creative, have a love for life, blessed with a beautiful and luscious island paradise. There are high pristine Blue Mountains, the un-spoilt Cockpit Country, good vibes and jamming music floating everywhere you go.

The everyday man misses the unique gifts which are upon him daily. Where else does almost every home have a fruit tree in the backyard; usually there are several of them. Jamaica has tens of thousands of towering mango trees, ackee trees, breadfruit, or our national flower lignum vitae trees. The countryside is lined with succulent cherry, plums, apple and so many delicious morsels from God’s garden.

All around you will see children playing and laughing, up to some Anancy mischief; but they are happy. Hunger is mostly kept at bay because there are trees bearing food everywhere and most neighbours are willing to allow you to pick from their trees. Mango, banana, ackee, pear, sweet sop, soursop, apple, papaya, june plum, hog plum, orange, grapefruit, cherry and much more.

Jamaica is a paradise indeed.

This book is a compilation of poems that I wrote while going through depression. I hope it gives you some understanding of the depressed mind. Some take life for granted and they shouldn’t.
