Carnival Connections….

Your eyes meet across the crowded bar at a fete, you smile, he smiles backs. She steals a wine, you oblige before she escapes yet again to turn up at another fete, another time. It must be serendipity that you both are playing mas in the same band… same section. Yet somehow you let the person slip away without a name, a phone number or even an email address… blame it on the alcohol!

If any of you have seen my Facebook status the past few days you must be thinking I have gone insane; yes folks I am looking for a man! Not for myself, of course, but for a Carnival lover who happened to run into a guy she met in 2008; he was blessed then by a sweet wine in a fete, and a memory was created. Fast forward to 2009, she again sees him at various fetes and even on the road for 2009 yet though they chat, dance and keep running into each other, they part ways not even establishing a follow up connection. The hunt is on to find this mystery guy, feel free to “macco” my Facebook profile and check out his photo.

While pursuing this matter on behalf of my friend I was encouraged to write today’s post by others who are also seeking out a Carnival sweetie…..much like the “I SEE YOU” segment in some City Newspapers!

If you will like to make a Carnival Connection send in a photo of the person you would like to get in contact with via email : Please use "Carnival Connection" as the subject of the email.

I will publish the photo in a subsequent post on the blog. Do not worry your identity will be safe with me and will not be revealed on the blog. If there is a connection all correspondence will be done via email.

So if you are seeking THAT special someone who you just cannot get off your mind now that Carnival is over, don’t be shy send in their photo! Hopefully someone somewhere will see the person and send out the S.O.S. that they are being sought!

*please note that photo used is for illustrative purposes only and masqueraders pictured are NOT looking for a Carnival Connection!
