I live in a mostly quiet urban-sprawl neighborhood where deer and rabbits wander around, looking cute except when they eat the landscaping. We are close enough to restaurants and taverns with outdoor dining areas that sometimes, on Friday or Saturday evenings, music drifts through our bedroom walls. That generally doesn’t bother me because the music is not nearly as loud as our noisy old air conditioner before we replaced it two years ago.

And considering what has happened this year, I can’t complain at all. It’s good to hear something that is more like normal life.

Word-art that says "So many of us around the world are singing out our windows, reminding one another we are here, and we are here for each other, and we have a song."
