Circumstantial Account of a State of ThingsMy grandfather said he knew what people we came from I reeled off all the names I knew Yoruba Ibo Ashanti Mandingo He said no to all of them, saying that he would know it if he heard it I was thirteen I was anxious for him to remember.I pestered him for days He told me to stop bothering him and that he would remember Or stop bothering or else he would not remember I hovered about him in any room in which he rested I followed him around asking him if he wanted me to do this or that for him, clean his glasses, polish his shoes, bring his tea I studied him intently when he came home I searched the grey bristles of his moustache for any flicker which might suggest he was about to speak He raised his Sunday Guardian newspaper to block my view He shooed me away, telling me to find some book to read or work to do At times it seemed as if Papa was on the brink of remembering I imagined pulling the word off his tongue if only I knew the first syllable.I scoured the San Fernando library and found no other lists of names at the time Having no way of finding other names, I could only repeat the ones I knew, asking him if he was sure it wasnt Yoruba, how about Ashanti I couldnt help myself I wanted to be either one I had heard that they were noble people But I could also be Ibo I had heard that they were gentle And I had followed the war in Biafra I was on their side.Papa never remembered Each week he came I asked him had he remembered Each week he told me no Then I stopped asking He was disappointed I was disappointed We lived after that in this mutual disappointment It was a rift between us It gathered into a kind of estrangement After that he grew old I grew young A small space opened in me.I carried this space with me Over time it has changed shape and light as the question it evoked has changed in appearance and angle The name of the people we came from has ceased to matter A name would have comforted a thirteen year old The question however was complicated, nuanced That moment between my grandfather and I several decades ago revealed a tear in the world A steady answer would have mended this fault line quickly I would have proceeded happily with a simple name I may have played with it for a few days and then stored it away Forgotten But the rupture this exchange with my grandfather revealed was greater than the need for familial bonds It was a rupture in history, a rupture in the quality of being It was also a physical rupture, a rupture of geography.My grandfather and I recognized this, which is why we were mutually disappointed And which is why he could not lie to me It would have been very easy to confirm any of the names Id proposed to him But he could not do this because he too faced this moment of rupture We were not from the place where we lived and we could not remember where we were from or who we were My grandfather could not summon up a vision of landscape or a people which would add up to a name And it was profoundly disturbing.Having no name to call on was having no past having no past pointed to the fissure between the past and the present That fissure is represented in the Door of No Return that place where our ancestors departed one world for another the Old World for the New The place where all names were forgotten and all beginnings recast In some desolate sense it was the creation place of Blacks in the New World Diaspora at the same time that it signified the end of traceable beginnings Beginnings that can be noted through a name or a set of family stories that extend farther into the past than five hundred or so years, or the kinds of beginnings that can be expressed in a name which in turn marked out territory or occupation I am interested in exploring this creation place the Door of No Return, a place emptied of beginnings as a site of belonging or unbelonging MapsThe rufous hummingbird travels five thousand miles from summer home to winter home and back This hummingbird can fit into the palm of a hand Its body defies the known physics of energy and flight It knew its way before all known map makers It is a bird whose origins and paths are the blood of its small body It is a bird whose desire to find its way depends on drops of nectar from flowers WaterWater is the first thing in my imagination Over the reaches of the eyes at Guaya when I was a little girl, I knew that there was still water All beginning in water, all ending in water Turquoise, aquamarine, deep green, deep blue, ink blue, navy, blue black cerulean water.To the south of this island on a clear day you could see the mainland of South America Women and men with a tinge of red in the black of their faces and a burnt copper to their hair would arrive from the mainland to this island fleeing husbands or the law, or fleeing life To the north was the hinterland of Trinidad, leading to the city which someone with great ambition in another century called Port of Spain To the west was the birds beak of Venezuela and to the east, the immense Atlantic gaping to Africa.Open it anywhere and start reading and it makes sense her true home is not Africa, the Caribbean or
