And we throw all sorts of other foods and spices in, to flavour our callaloo pot :ochro, pumpkin, garlic, pimento, hot pepper, chive, celery, coconut milk, salt and a meat of your choice. Most persons use pigtail or crab. I, however, like to change it up a bit and use shrimp, salmon or chicken foot.
Callaloo though can also be used in literary terms to give the meaning of diversity. For example, because of my multi-ethnic background, I usually tell persons I’m a ‘callaloo’.
Today, however, I thought of applying ‘callaloo’, to reading. Many readers have a preferred genre or two and that’s great. But sometimes it’s also good to venture outside of your ‘reading comfort zone’ and try something new… mix it up a little… like a callaloo 🙂
Diversifying your reading genre can be likened to dropping a hot pepper in a callaloo pot: it doesn’t overpower the other ingredients, rather it just gives added flavour.
So spice up your reading! Try a new author or genre. Here are some books you may not have read before but can add to your reading list:
Grey Areas by Brad Carl (perma-FREE on Amazon Kindle)
And of course there are many more titles which I will share in future posts!
