It's finally warm enough to keep the windows open tonight. And though I'm fenced in by screens it's one step closer to being connected to the small marsh and line of trees just below. The pulsing sounds reach me from the darkness outside and I try to dissect them. I can hear the rustle of the leaves and the song of small animals. Some near, some far, yet all collaborating on the same tune. It's a welcome sound from the comfort of my bed.
