Ingrid Walter is an award-winning journalist and communications specialist whose professional experience spans television, radio, print, politics and publishing. A Sea of Wisdom, Island Proverbs, which she co-produced with Sabina Theobalds is Ingrid’s first book. In part inspired by the proverbs Ingrid’s grandmother told her as a child growing up in Jamaica, the book is also a celebration of the love she has for the natural beauty of the Caribbean, the history, culture, uncanny wit and wisdom of its peoples.
Ingrid tells her own story:
“A Sea of Wisdom, Island Proverbs, is in part, inspired by my feisty grandmother, Gogo. As a child she entertained me with old Caribbean proverbs and African inspired Anansi stories; gripping, sometimes frightening tales of a wise and mischievous spider. It is also a product of the appreciation Sabina and I have of the culture, history and beauty of the Caribbean islands.
“While unveiling an intriguing mix of sage, funny and entertaining island proverbs, our book takes you on a scenic, historical and cultural journey through Jamaica, the Bahamas, St. Lucia, Antigua, Barbados, Cuba and the Turks and Caicos Islands.
“It is a bit like magic the way these islanders utilize every imaginable insect, animal, plant, food and more to provide profound commentary on the human condition; whether it be the funny and puzzling aspects of human nature, the way we parent, how we view friendship, power, greed, morality or work. This book provides a window into their Sea of Wisdom.”
