Story Telling at True Blue Bay Resort

March 16, 2012

Long before iphones, Blackberrys, Facebook, Twitter and all the other gadgets and apps that exist for entertainment and ‘socializing’, storytelling was one of the main forms of entertainment in Grenada. “Tim Tim”, was a familiar expression used to signal the start of story time and with elation children would gather round grandparents to enjoy the latest tales of “Compere Zien” or “Brar Anansi” or one of their fellow counterparts.

At True Blue Bay Boutique Resort, a bit of this tradition is kept alive with our Story Telling Sessions with Ms. Esther O’Neale.  Ms. O’Neale is author of the book “The Red Petticoat”—a collection of some of the stories told to her by her grandparents.  Every Monday at 4:30pm she shares a bit of this aspect of Grenadian tradition.  Feel free to join us and share in the stories of yester-year. Here is a clip from one of the sessions: Compere Zien & The Jumbie.
