SUMMER 2019

Late summer evening I was trying to sleep when I heard a cacophony of bells, birdcalls and whistles in the living room. I got up to check it out – and as soon as I stepped over the threshold into the living area, the noises ceased. This went on for hours – and my husband slept through the whole thing. I heard whistling and clanging of metal, like carnival rides. Faintly I made out excited voices/whispers. These tantalized the ear as if the conversation was just out of reach. Eventually I just fell asleep.
