SIGNS

A week ago, as I arrived in an empty office and put on my headphones, three swallows dipped past my window. They weren’t the first I had seen this year, but as the room was empty and the music on my headphones seemed to fit their flight, I imagined they were there for me. They were carrying a message. A change in the air. I sat still for a moment and watched them. I have become too impatient to wait for signs to appear outside window panes, so I turned on my phone. There was one new message waiting. One of my best friends just had a baby boy. I called him and he told me after the baby was born that night, the first song they played on the radio was by The Beastie Boys. “I don’t know, but that seemed like a good sign.” he said. I agreed, hung up the phone, put my headphones back on, watched the swallows some more and felt happy. Summer’s coming. And it’s going to be good.

Here’s the music on my headphones that day:
