Open windows in the bedroom tonight create a diversion that I don't need when trying to finally fall asleep: sound. Noise, more appropriately. One forgets during winter how loud the outside world is, even at night. Tired as I am after an extremely long and hot day at work, I am unable to adjust to the sounds. The clock shows the steady march of time and I know that recovery for tomorrow becomes ever more unlikely.
I push the day from my mind and listen to another rhythm. Slowly, I finally find the place that will help me fall asleep.
