1919



behind the curtain
a play of light and shadows -
silence of windchimes


Today, the first Sunday in July, meets Trinidad and Tobago in mourning at the passing of a Prime Minister: Patrick Manning (August 17, 1946 - July 2, 2016). The Honorable Patrick Manning served as Prime Minister from 1991 to 1995 and again 2001 to 2010.

Wind chimes do have an air of silence even though they make noise - a kind of respectful chime - as is warranted here
