Oh Me Oh I Oh You...just ask the questions


My blog is still up and running! It’s not over yet. Don’t give up on me in this modern world of loads of blogs, information and questions which seem to have no answers. Be calm my readers because amidst that I have a surprise for you.

I am pleased to share with you the completion of my book: Oh Me Oh I Oh You...just ask the questions - Grace Asphall.

For full indulgence please visit

Below you will find the introduction to the book and reviews.


The idea of writing this book was founded on the people whom I have met on the streets or in an establishment in my Flatbush neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York, USA. I summed them up as being bold and strapped with interesting character traits. They never cease to amaze and impress me with their antics, stories, knowledge on world events, laws, local happenings and their opinions on current affairs and religion. They court stamina. More importantly they express themselves without fear...self-induced therapy.

Oh Me Oh I Oh You…just ask the questions is an insightful and witty collection of essays that explores the rich culture and meanings behind the old adages of Caribbean/Jamaican folklore. Grace powerfully quips with wisdom, self-reflection, and astute observation, cleverly drawing you into each story as you recognize situations or dilemmas relevant and relatable to you. Her ability to write in such raw, unabashed, honest, and thoughtful manner only reinforces the connection you experience to each of her stories. In this atmospheric platform of life lessons you will find there is something for everyone. Whether you are a procrastinator, a teenager experiencing peer pressure, or someone having trouble asserting your voice in the workplace, this easy-to-read thought-provoking book will draw you into the wisdom of ‘old sayings’, helping you to find your voice and your ‘aha’ moment. A must-read!  - Natasha Ioda

Grace Asphall captures perfectly the sayings and adages of old-time Jamaica in Oh Me Oh I Oh You…just ask the questions. In the age of consumerism, social media and instant gratification, the wisdom and intuition from traditional Jamaica is refreshing to read and is more valuable than ever. - Peter Allen

Step into the world of Grace Asphall! Her unique perspective will have you laughing, thinking and talking. You may find yourself quoting some proverbs too! - Peter Domani

Tah-tah! Happy reading!
