Envy and Surprise
by Pegeen Shean
Birthdays, the yearly ritual of who looks younger and who looks older, as witnessed by a beloved 1950’s tin wind-up toy- a man dancing with a cane, is the pivotal character of this series. Watching and listening to the family’s history and secrets, he see so much, but reveal nothing, he is the Silent Witness.
