Deborah woke me at 5:15 to watch the sunrise, this being her last full day in Two Dot. She is full of excitement and chatter today but has paused enough to notice all of the individual sounds here. She’s been describing Two Dot as a place of such quiet, and yet after 10 days she has quieted herself enough to hear what’s here. Just now there are cows moaning, a truck grinding its way down the highway, the hunter moving things around outside his cabin, flies buzzing, a robin and all the other birds singing, and shockingly… no one mowing…but of course someone will be soon.
