It’s 5 am. Our neighbours in Beirut have a chicken coop on their roof. You know, easy access to eggs and the occasional chicken dinner. And there is a rooster. You know, to help make more chickens. And it’s 5am. And the sun is up. And he won’t shut up. I’ve never lived near a rooster before. Apparently it’s not that rare here. Later today, I’m buying earplugs.
Words to live by…Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Discover. - Mark Twain
