Fabrizio said...

Ciao Stephen. Your blog is great!
Lot of greetings from Italy for a happy new year.

I think that Lil Stevie just guessed that Santa can change his size and probably pass through the door, even if it's closed! ;-D

Your brother's art is really cool.

A lot of blessings on the Bess clan. I really hope I'll make it to DC this summer to say "YOH" in the flesh. Well, I'll probably just say "Lumelang." Comes more naturally.

Wish you a great 2007...

I think the Caribbean countries have done nothing to help Haiti. Very sad. I heard something on BBC Caribbean yesterday about a woman who received death threats for speaking out...she's famous, I can't remember her name right now.

Hope your 2007 is filled with peace and happiness, Stephen.

Stephen Bess said...

GG-
Thank you! I wish the same for you. Yes, I also read an article in the Washington Post by Haitian born writer, Edwidge Danticat. She also talked about the chaos there in Haiti.

Guyana-Gyal said...

Edwidge Danticat. This is the second time I've heard her name in recent times. Another writer, Clare, http://www.cmwalsh.com told me about her.

Stephen Bess said...

Ms. Danticat is a wonderful and very nice lady. I had the pleasure of meeting her at a symposium for Haiti about 2 years ago. She's also a great writer.
