Heritage – A Living Tradition: Weekly Photo Challenge


We inherit all kinds of things. I treasure the bedcover my mother knitted for us when we were children (it is not beautiful enough for a photograph, but I cherish it anyway). Heritage holds history, and memories. It is also something we should never disrespect or destroy; sadly, though, we don’t seem to think of our natural environment as an inheritance that we should protect and hand down to future generations. We disrespect it every day.

However, I am sharing here some examples of a living heritage. We can still see it all around us, in Jamaica and elsewhere, if we look. Whether it is a set of old-fashioned enamel jugs – collector’s items; a new poetry book; a whimsical carving, in the Jamaican tradition; or food items laid out on a tablecloth – we are looking at heritage, there.
