Why Did I Stay Up So Late Writing?


I don’t know what I was thinking to stay up so late writing. I had a goal to get something done. I did it. That’s good.

But now I’m awake again. I want more sleep and I’m trying to get out for work. The repairs on our building are still going strong and the workers are not only early today but very loud.

On the other side of our temporary security walls, they drill, hammer, saw, drop heavy chunks of what I imagine was once part of my home. They yell in spanish. “Beuno!” And this morning they apparently have a boom box because there is also loud music blaring into my living room. I like the music and their singing. The pounding and sawing not so much.

I wonder if they know how well we can hear them.

    I lived in Puerto Rico for three years. The sounds they make are that of life. They are a happy people.
