Alfonzo & Gitmo, the Rooster
In the south of Spain, the bells ring every day to remind us of how we are connected to the Old World. Within the Ancient City of Azula, is the answer where we can hear the ancient bells resonate on the old walls, and tell a story that sings of the past! The sounds of the ancient bells offer a view into a world view where people have time to remember their history with each passing day. This is a story about an old man named Alfonso, however, he is a character that’s timeless! For in fact, he is the timekeeper of the bell tower! Time resonates for Alfonso, and his friend, Gitmo the Rooster– where they both work together keeping time for the entire community of Azula. Together, Alfonso and Gitmo, the Rooster offer many lessons to the community. It is their friendship, and the responsibility to keeping time that shows us how wonderful life is when we work together, and celebrate life’s passing.
