Hangin’ out on the Island of St. John!

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Now I’m sure you will agree that everyone needs to get a way to the islands from time to time.  I tuned out last week on the back side of St. John in the Virgin Islands at the invitation of my law school roommate, and came back with some stories to tell.   Do you know where Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Treasure Island:” is located?  Well check out my video below and I’ll give you the whole background. And by the way, the temperature on St. John says between 75 and 80 degrees all year long.  How boring.  (Yeah, right!)

Below is my visit with Tom Lawson, a Virginia lawyer who spends a great deal of time on St. John and has developed quite a reputation as a painter in the Islands. His Picasso like figures blend in with Tom’s island interpretations, and have become quite popular.  Take a look as Tom explains his approach to his art.
