Creativity Is Humanities Algorithm

JAMAICA’S CREATIVITY, ARTS, ROOTS & CULTURE

“LIKKLE BUT WE TALLAWAH!”

“The Creativity in Jamaica is mind-boggling & PHENOMENAL! You’re being severely deprived if you aren’t exposed to it.”

~Maxwanette A Poetess

“This is where Jamaica began for me, with my Mother, Hyacinth Williams, marrying my father, she became a Moncrieffe. “My Mommy, ah di best Mommy!” Plays deep within my brain, pulsating, and radiating throughout my core…My Mommy showed & shared her culture, as Claude McKay & Miss Lou were known at home. I was born in Brooklyn, NY in the ’70s. Mommy wrote her first book in 1983 (I happily republished it last year), started her own record label, started her own company, and was an avid activist in her community in the USA because she knew what it was to suffer, struggle, and do with less. My Mommy taught me how to hold my head up high. She gave back until she gave away…But she always had a love for Jamaica, visited, and through her eyes, I became fascinated. My Mommy immersed my sister Denise & I into our ancestry, down to designing & making our clothes, a huge storyteller, an awesome cook, and had a vibe that simply made you have to jump & dance, get up & prance…

Oh, the dances! The foods, the people, the music, the groove,
Swaying and Flowing to a riddim,
all of their own.
Deep Within the core of our beings,
steady, firm, like the beating of the Congo drum, the Lub Dub of our hearts…
JAMAICA!
My eyes are full of tears, my heart, caresses you with love…
Yuh affi feel it.

I set out on a mission to discover who my people were, past the negativity taught, the unfairness brought the differences, yet our sameness.

The journey will take many lifetimes, it’s our duty to let it be known. Our Poets, Storytellers, Singers, CREATORS OF CREATIVITY…Yes, WE,

JAMAICA!
I speak because it is your blood that runs through my veins, beats in my heart, and fuels my brain, It is YOU, that Mommy taught me, Over & Over, “If at first, you don’t succeed, you try, & try, & try again”… The VOICES of the CREATIVES are getting louder & louder. Are we listening & getting prouder? Or are we joining in, just as we began, Jamaica, Jamaica, “Out of Many, We Are One.”

This is the fire & fuel I grew up with, no matter what, you keep on going. So, I had to start looking at where this came from. Where do this style, flare, talent, and courage as a people come from & what do you do with all that ENERGY? You reflect within Creativity. Let’s take a look, & come along with us, as we learn, share, expand, add, and grow with the view of Jamaica’s AWESOME Talents & Creatives, from the monitors across the globe!…~Maxwanette A Poetess aka Maxine A.

    1. “Greetings Brother Kenton!
      We’re always so happy to see and hear from you! I apologize for the delayed response, as I wasn’t available, due to being ill. Please bear with us, as we apply content and expand. We have a wonderful team and we appreciate the compliments. The behind-the-scenes work is extensive, and rarely do people see, know, or care about it. Yet, it’s vital to the flow and must be done. I know you can relate.

      The World of Creativity is soooo HUMONGOUS, lol! Yet, I’m having a wonderful time, on this journey, sharing Creatives, and my own talents (which oddly wasn’t the plan, but happened anyway, lol), as the beacons of; love, light, unity, arts, roots, and culture, coupled with the wonderfulness of life and humanity, that we all really encompass. “Creativy is Is Humanities Algorithm.” All we have to do? Is FEEL. Thank you for you continued love and support, as you’re a well needed and valued individual, and we’re happy to have you. I look forward to sharing your works on a larger scale and to your continued progress and success. I LOVE YOUR WORKS!, Your style, and your level of Creativity is uniquely satisfying. Continued Love & Blessings! Yuh dun noe seh mi lub yuh mi breddah! Blessed.”~Maxwanette A Poetess aka Maxine A. Moncrieffe
