I linked their posts on the username (on the left). I also included their friends’ posts if they are both in the picture (not all but most). Anyway, here is Kaylor 2012 - 2016 in the media.

(date : 13 November 2013 - from the window of my house)

When I met you it was 65 and windy and the white skies were home.
You walked through the door, locked eyes with me, and that was it; I was hooked.
I was always confused as to why people said they felt butterflies.
What did it mean to have butterflies in your stomach when you liked someone?
What did it mean to have butterflies in your stomach when someone liked you?
And why did I never have them?
but now there are butterflies in my chest cavity, collar bone, kidneys, toes, and all over.
there are butterflies all over,
because of you.
my whole body shook hours after you took my hand and told me
it was nice to meet me.
no one has thought it was nice to meet me in years,
since I was a child and “cute” was still a good compliment,
when “beautiful” seemed like an adult word.
I used to think that our eyes would meet when we were in the same room together,
but they didn’t just simply meet,
they slammed right into each other and have not looked away.


We fell in love faster than a hurricane swallows a city near the ocean
And we fell so hard that our knees cracked on the pavement, but it didn’t matter,
It never mattered, when we could lick the other’s wounds.


I am not going to lie and say that loving you was easy,
Because there were days where it was harder to love you than it was to get out of bed.
Falling in love and drowning have a lot of similarities. You’re being completely consumed, it’s hard to breathe, and you’re lucky if you make it out alive.


We stayed up all night long every Friday night learning each other inside out, relearning each other,
Every crack and every crevice was our home.
We never wanted to forget who we were and what we meant to each other, we were always afraid of forgetting.


Sunday mornings we fell In love over coffee and tea, with our sleepy eyes and messy hair, we were cranky and feisty but we were home, we were always home.
But home can be cold and winter came and we grew very tired,
But we grew together.
We always grew together.


I forgot to tell you this was a story.

I forgot to tell you this was fiction.
That this was day dreams and wishful thinking.

A poet can write through a whole relationship with its ups and downs, hardships and laughs, sleepless Friday nights and Sunday morning coffee, all before the first kiss.
But the problem is, when a poet writes about you, and you leave before any of it can happen;
it ruins her.

Please do not ruin her.
Please do not ruin me.

Amanda Helm - When I met you it was 65 and windy

Rasta Fighting To Preserve Pinnacle’s Heritage

 In the 1st Picture is a section of the ruins of Leonard P. Howell’s great house at The Pinnacle in St Catherine. The first Rastafarian village, established by Leonard P. Howell, was completely destroyed by the local militia in 1953.-Photos by Paul H. Williams

Michael Matthews has been associated with The Pinnacle since he was a child. Last Friday, he was cooking ‘sip’ for the gathering at The Pinnacle, where the Rastafari community is maintaining a presence to protect Rastafari heritage, and Leonard P. Howell’s legacy. (2nd Picture)

After years of the Rastafari movement in Jamaica lobbying with the Jamaica National Heritage Trust (JNHT) for national monument status for The Pinnacle, located at Sligoville, St Catherine, only one lot was declared in September last year after the close of legal arguments in the St Catherine Resident Magistrate’s Court.

Pinnacle is the first Rastafarian village in Jamaica and was set up by Leonard P. Howell in 1940. The declaration of only Lot 199 for national monument protection, however, is a drop in the bucket for the Rastafarian community as they want ownership and protection of six lots, the entire property, preferably.

On November 13, 2013, Resident Magistrate Vashti Chatoor ruled that Lot 199 at Pinnacle legally belongs to St Jago Hills Development Company Limited. It consists of the ruins of the cut-stone great house where Leonard Howell lived and the ruins of a water tank which was part of Howell’s community at Pinnacle. It does not include the Nyahbinghi Tabernacle at Pinnacle.

Private properties may be declared national monuments.

ONLY ONE LOT PROTECTED

Prior to the JNHT’s declaration, the Rastafarian community said six lots, including the bakery, grave sites, and other sites of historical value at Pinnacle, were identified as suitable for national monument protection. The JNHT, the Rastafari community claimed, agreed to declare those six lots as national monuments. However, after the 2012 change of government, the JNHT board also changed, and the JNHT declared only one lot for national monument protection.

The JNHT falls under the culture portfolio.

The JNHT’s declaration of Lot 199 as a national monument does not change the ownership of the land at Pinnacle or the rights of St Jago Hills Development Company over Pinnacle. It, however, prevents St Jago Hills Development Company from disturbing or destroying the protected national monuments.

“We, therefore, need to have those additional lots urgently declared by JNHT as national monuments to prevent the St Jago Hills Development Company from further construction and destruction of Rastafari heritage,” a legal spokesman for the Rastafari community told The Sunday Gleaner.

A housing development has already been built up by the paper title owners at Pinnacle. The ongoing construction, the Rastafarians said, threatens the graves of many Howellites, including the wife of Leonard Howell, as well as the homes of many surviving Howellite families and ultimately original ancestral home of the Rastafari community.

MONUMENTS IN DANGER

A Rastafari tabernacle built many years ago at Pinnacle, the venue for annual celebrations in honour of Leonard P. Howell, is also in jeopardy of being lost forever. The Rastafari community is, therefore, seeking ownership and control over the undeveloped lands of Pinnacle, while reserving the right to pursue reclamation of the entire property through litigation if necessary.

The Rastafari community said in the 1990s, it had approached then Prime Minister P.J. Patterson with hopes of a government acquisition of the lands at Pinnacle for and on behalf of the Rastafari community. Yet, despite several discussions over several years with several successive governments, they are saying no land at Pinnacle has been acquired for and on behalf of the Rastafari community. Despite the JNHT’s declaration, they say, the Government has not made any move to acquire the lands.

About a month ago, the community met with Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller and, last Tuesday, there was a march to the Office of the Prime Minister to deliver letters outlining the issues to the prime minister and other members of parliament. The community met with a committee set up by the prime minister.

After that meeting, Dahlia Harris, principal director of culture in the Ministry of Youth and Culture, said dialogue would continue “in an atmosphere of mutual respect for the rights, interests, and concerns of all the stakeholders”.

Said Harris in a statement: “The dialogue on the issues related to Pinnacle is being coordinated by the committee established by the prime minister, which includes Ambassador Burchell Whiteman, Professor Rupert Lewis, and Judith Wedderburn.”

She added: “The Ministry of Youth and Culture, which has portfolio responsibility for all cultural issues, as well as the agencies of the ministry, will continue to carry out the roles of facilitator of, and participants in, the discussions.”

Harris said the developers were sensitive to the cultural issues related to the significance of Pinnacle to the Rastafari faith and were open to negotiations regarding further development/construction, and that there would be no construction on the five lots adjoining the great house.

“Further inclusive dialogue is to take place regarding the use of the site of the great house at Pinnacle, which has been designated by the JNHT as a national heritage site (and) further research, in consultation with the Millennium Council of Rastafari, the Leonard P. Howell Foundation and the Rastafari Youth Initiative will be undertaken to determine the existence of other sacred sites with a view to preventing any possible desecration,” she said.

Harris added: “Further meetings are to be scheduled to continue the discussions with a view to arriving at the amicable resolution of the issues.”
