Summer. Time for fans in the window. In the kitchen, there’s a ceiling fan, and a window fan cools the concrete floor where dogs like to lay.
Each fan sings a different pitch, gentle background music when I used to sit on the steps to watch clouds float by.
Once, a cacophony of crickets, katydids, birdsong, and wind flowing through the pine needles blended together.
A peaceful sound.
People moved from city to country. They play music so loud you wonder if their children are going to be deaf before the age of 15.
Now, there is no peace.
