Whistles in the Wind
About the Book
Whistles in the Wind explores experiences of diverse forms that make up the essence of modern man’s life, lending voice to his main responses to both natural and man-made stimuli surrounding him in a longitudinal context of time as a malleable prism, through which man’s actions may be perceived. In rural and urban settings, in work and leisure contexts and in spheres of social interaction in times of peace and war, man is always confronted with choices, and how choices are made. The book is further concerned with an artistic form through which man’s behavior is best understood. In this regard, the ubiquitous use of imagery is intended to throw light on man’s interaction with nature in the context of both the static (physical features and forces) and changing dynamics beyond man’s control. Above all, it is also generally about how little winds of events, subtle warning whistles blowing in them, matter and lead to ultimate storms that may have been averted. From whatever angle life is viewed, man’s resilience is dealt with rather implicitly in terms of how he deals with death, the height of man’s gloom, and other tragic events, invariably evolving and transformed into man’s cycles of hilarious and victorious moods.
