Tribute to Nina Simone

For the next few weeks, I will author my blog from a seaside porch, overlooking the Caribbean waters. I’m on the beautiful island of Barbados, where one branch of my family has made their home. Obviously, Nina Simone is on my mind. Simone lived in Barbados for much of her life, and god knows it’s clear why. Even for a city girl like me, the natural beauty of this island is bewitching.

My first love is the sea and water, not music. Music is second.
-Nina Simone
