Silence, with the exception of a rooster

It’s been a long few weeks. I’ve felt them starting to drag on me, but I didn’t realize that it was so obvious from the outside. I ran into a colleague who hadn’t seen me in a while, and she greeted me with a strange look and said, “You look tired, or stressed, or something.”

I took her comments as a sign that I should do something to unwind on my way home, so I drove out west of town and stopped on the side of the road to watch the sunset. As my car door closed, I noticed something odd for this time of the day.

No wind. No cars.

For a few minutes, I checked into silence, with the exception of a rooster.
