think softly!

.Nite-Nite

think softly!

Slowly, it comes back to me...
I am awake,,,I am in Punta Gorda...
I am hearing a "nite-nite" - the traditional send-off
of the recently departed by the Garinagu

One week after a death, an all night bash of 
drinking,singing,and dancing...

The Garifuna farewll, African and Carib blended
as the living cope and the dead depart.
