'Just Another Biker Sunday' in St.Lucia




"I've come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that's as unique as a fingerprint - and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you." - Oprah

How powerful! I allow the energy of my universe to always guide me. Hence the reverence, I have for certain people or situations and their arrival, timing in my life. I believe that when I tap into the energy of the universe, I'm fully aware of the minor details. "Love is in the details!"

On Wednesday morning, a Facebook friend shared the following video 'Just Another Biker Sunday,' which was recorded by another friend of mine. 'Though, I have never been a fan of motorbikes, this video caught my attention.

And although I've lived through many Sunday afternoons, and seen many blue-sky and sunny days, I have never had the thrill of experiencing St.Lucia quite like this. The video with its rock music soundtrack, captures a group of young St.Lucian dare devils as they navigate through local areas, at heart pounding speeds got my adrenaline pumping! Pure joy.

"WOW.  I never even knew there was such a biking culture in St.Lucia!"




With this discovery, I tried to contact my friend who produced the video. Unfortunately, he immediately responded, "Today is not a good day, I just lost one of my friends this morning. He was on his way to work!" I thought "Wow. One more young St.Lucian gone, in an untimely fashion!"

I did admit that I allow the energy of the universe to lead me.

I began to ask about the young St.Lucian man who died. ... And what a small world, for his face did look familiar. Apparently, "St.Lucia's First Recorded Road Fatality in 2011,"  HTS NEWS report was this young biker who was also my cousin's co-worker.

Many took to his Facebook page to bid him farewell. Peculiar, I only saw that, not because he was a friend of mine but because his Facebook profile was open, to the public. I just stared at his pictures, looking at his lovely brown eyes. 

I was hesitant to post the video, the timing seemed sadly off. Yet, I felt it necessary to share and to honor and say to this young man, "R.I.P."





Life is for living!
