Lately I’ve been living most of the time alone on a house that used to host from four to six people and boy, it feels quite strange.
I can’t say I understand them but I’m starting to do things that always seemed a little weird to me before.
I arrive in the evening to be greeted by an all encompassing silence, I turn on the lights on many rooms, otherwise I feel a bit uneasy (and it is a pitch black here). I also find myself talking a lot more to my cats and thinking out loud.
All of a sudden lots of sounds, that were always here, step to the foreground. I can hear a faucet dripping on the far end. Kind of like the first time I wore earplugs and I started to hear my inner machinery.
