Last night someone had a gathering. Well not a gathering. A loud and long party. At three in the morning it was so loud, I couldn't take it anymore. No, I didn't go to join in. I got up and came downstairs. I read and listened to podcasts in the dark. I put the head phones in and played my electronic keyblard in the dark. And then, Tulia got up and came looking for me. I doubt she was having trouble sleeping but it was nice to have a black dog keep me company when I was awake for a good part of the night. And nice I could read and write and play music with the lights off so no one else was disturbed.
