Monochrome Monday: PAUSE

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come...
"Funeral Blues" - W. H. Auden

Rest in peace, dear Cory Aquino, former President of the Republic of the Philippines. For leading the fight that toppled a dictator, restored democracy, and forged a nation ever so strongly together- we will be eternally grateful.

  1. A very strong post for a Philippine hart :-)

    Even for a Norwegian girl.

    Hugs from Anne.

  2. Very cool picture and it looks great in b&w. I was in the P.I. just after she was elected and I remember seeing so much yellow. It's hard to believe that it's been so long.
    R.I.P. Cory.

  3. Fine picture for an evocative moment. Best wishes.
