Homes and spaces filled with character and warmth continue to have an arresting effect on me. As an avid lover of languages and culture, I came upon a phrase while studying German many years ago, “Heimatgefühl”, which expresses the feeling of finding your true home. Since discovering and exploring the meaning behind Heimatgefühl, I have traveled to many countries all over the world seeking that sense of home. Many buyers are searching for that sense of home or a home away from home.
As a native of Jamaica, I guard that feeling of home jealously and for many years considered Jamaica my only true home. That changed when I moved to St. Croix over thirteen years ago. The sights and smells of St. Croix, as I landed at the airport immediately impressed upon me the idea that, perhaps I may have found another place reminiscent of home. As I explored the island and her beautiful people, she filled me with that special nostalgic feeling of.
St. Croix captured my attention and heart in many ways. The turquoise hues of the pristine waters that encircle St. Croix come alive with her abundance of sunshine. Her rhythmic tempo and vibe are soothing with a meditative quality. Her food and many spices that tantalize the taste buds are magical. Her music, fused with African, European, American, and Native American influences dazzles and entrances.
Since landing on St. Croix, it has become a passion of mine to share her unique bounties, and I have never tired of so doing. Whether it is playing mass in her yearly Christmas parade, adorned in feathers signifying the height of the seasonal festivities, or by opening my home to friends, families, and strangers alike to indulge in Coquito, coconut tarts, and goat water, I have encouraged others to join me in celebrating this wonderful Caribbean island.
