I sometimes forget how blessed I am to have an endless stream of creativity, to care about the world and contribute to help make it better, to be alive at this time and know that right now is the absolutely best time of my life, that everyday I get stronger, better, more inspired, and that I have always been able to find people who love me to support my artistic expressions and my cultural activist work.
Although it is not always easy to make my dream a reality, and sometimes I get frustrated and ask where is my help, why do I have to do so much of the leg work alone, where are the billions to fund my project –after all I want to do good in the world, I don’t want six cars and a diamond ring that cost millions. I just want to create an amazing artists colony with a profuse Caribbean garden with sculptures and an orchard with all the many fruits, and ponds and flowing water and wide open space to dream and think and create.
I want to leave my children a legacy of land and ownership, in addition to my writings, so each generation is not beginning from scratch so that we never make any ground way . I don’t want to go out the same way I came, unknown, unheralded, without leaving monuments that document that I was here, I had dreams and plans which I implemented that will exist long, long after i have gone, and will contribute to humanity.
I want it all. I deserve it all. I will live my dreams. I will continue to create and leave a lasting legacy. I will continue to help heal the world, and expose child abuse, and provide victims and parents with a voice to say no more enough. Our community must talk out, blare out, expose, eradicate and heal. To this end I have written, The Cock Crows Our Secrets, to begin the dialogue. I cannot do this without out. So support in all ways you can, spread the word, send contribution to the St Croix Foundation care of Moving Women. Raise the conversation with friends, family and colleagues, and most importantly do not be silent about these crimes that impact the entire community.
I am blessed and grateful and each day I am doing my part. Join me in happinesses and wealth building to support all our dreams. Support Moving Women’s theatre efforts.

Dr. Opal Palmer- Adisa
I am happy to know that you continue
with your very much needed possitive efforts and influence here on St. Croix.
It is with deep admiration and respect that I say: “Thank you.” I pray that by the grace of Almighty God, you may continue with your great master pieces and legacies that will live on and on; and that they be woven securely now and foervermore into the the extended fabric of all life, in expectation that the birth of your seeds will remain perpetual throughout time as we know it today and beyond.
