It is raining. I look out on the maple, where a few leaves have turned yellow, and listen to Punch, the parrot, talking to himself and to the rain ticking gently against the windows. I am here alone for the first time in weeks, to take up my “real” life again at last.

Without the interruptions, nourishing and maddening, this life would become arid. Yet I taste it fully only when I am alone.
