The changes have begun
The changes at my neighbors seem to have begun. Big men in orange overalls walk around, talking so loud they split the cold air and their booming voices reach me inside my home in spite of all the closed windows and the trees between us. Noises of back-up signals and banging tools also break what was a quiet morning up to now. What will bring the rest of the day, I wonder.
I can't see them, but the southerly breeze carries the noises of men into my refuge full of birds that keep on feeding despite their presence too near.
***UPDATE: I took a walk to go buy a newspaper and was able to see that the Hydro-Québec workers had spliced the two A/C 100W wires and put in junction connections. I imagine this is in preparation of bringing in electricity for the new house that will be built.
P.S.: Someone driving a small grey car loudly honked at me and made a hand gesture. I was not able to determine if it was a wave or a finger.
