Many dominicans say that they don’t have time to relax. I once read somewhere that death is the ultimate relaxation and is nature’s way of telling us to slow down!

Obviously we need to to relax before that limited is reached!

Time for most people is not the real problem, but the issue is how to relax. Our heart has to rest between beats and with the right sort of relaxation could have a number of its other work-load pressures reduced.

Our daily activities is important to out well-being as is also our regular sleep at night. Irregularities in our health habits need to be eliminated and time set in advance for a regular relaxation slot.

As with many other things in life, practice makes perfect. But perfect relaxation is not achieved overnight. In order to survive we have to plan to relax.

I’m curious to know: How do you relax, and whether you plan your relaxation slots ahead of time? Share your relaxation ideas in the comments.

My wife Ruth and I have just returned from Sunday brunch at the newly-opened River Rush and I just couldn’t wait to write this review. River Rush is an exclusive resort in Dominica’s Rainforest situated between two rivers. The resort is incomplete as of today (23Aug09) although both should be finished soon.

Meanwhile, until the cottages are finished the restaurant is only open for Sunday brunch, served from 10AM – 2PM. The cost is moderate: EC$50 per person (plus cash bar) for a very good-tasting brunch with copious quantities and very wide selections.

We had omelets, which were served with two pancakes, home fries, sausages and bacon and a star fruit and parsley garnish. And (Ready for this homesick Americans?) Thomas’ English muffins! It was more than Ruth could finish.

River Rush is a lovely setting, at Duex Branche, along the road between Marigot and the Pond Casse roundabout, just west of the Central Forest Reserve. It’s well marked with a sign. River bathing there is an extra treat. A nice gravel path and stone steps lead from the restaurant to the river.

For me an extra-special treat was being allowed to jam with the live musicians, Mo the proprietor on sax and a keyboard player. I play harmonica. The music, whether you join-in like I did or simply listen as most everyone else does, is jazz and very, very good. Photos via river-rush.com

Now that the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) results are out and there is bound to be the usual excitement over those students who would have done exceptionally well as far as their results are concerned.

For many Dominican students these examinations are stepping stones as they try to discern the path along which they might want to travel as far as their careers are concerned. Many of these students are now getting the first hints on whether or not they should continue with dreams as they moved from one level of their formal education to another.

Having said that, we now have to wonder what might be in place, compliments of this country’s authorities, to properly assist these young people, whether they decide to further their education or to enter the work force early.

Government will certainly have to be very creative in get jobs for these young people once they have committed to joining the work force while the private sector would need to be a bit more willing to offer our youths a chance of making something of themselves. If this is not happening, then there will be too many people going around this country with nothing to do but getting into trouble with the law.

In any case, it will be government with the headaches to try and find rehabilitation programmes when work done upfront might have worked to the positive development of the young people. The private sector also has much to gain by assisting as it is their businesses that will bear the brunt of any assault of a people feeling that they have no where to go and no one to turn to.

So while we’re excited about the good news of excellent examination results, we are forced to ponder “what happens from here” and come up with very few answers.
