The area I work in has no windows.
Neither do the hallways… well, except one set of doors has a small window.
Sometimes, when the heat is super intense… a most wonderful thing happens… The cicadas get so very loud… So very loud they are able to penetrate the walls here. And for a small blissful amount of time… I can hear nature. I can hear there is a world outside these walls.
Earlier today, I got sooooo excited. I thought I heard a bird chirping. I thought that maybe it was in the same tree outside I could hear the cicadas in.
Silly me… It was just a squeaky printer.
