the past two nights, i’ve wondered what about this apartment at night reminds me of home?
what about this boston neighborhood, with sirens screaching, doors slamming, music blaring and curses on the street remind me of home? where my night sounds are coyotes howling, moose slashing through the ravine,  the brook gurgling and a far off train?

chirpers.

i just realized that here, amidst the city night sounds, i can [amazingly] hear chirpers.

lovely, comforting, a familiar night sound.

has the ability to oh so quickly make this new place feel like home.
