Awake and kicking

Someone's outside, on the street, talking. I'd say it's two or three guys. Despite the lateness of the hour. They're not going to keep me up. They'd really have to go all out with the noise to do that. But it's a reminder. The whole world is never sleeping. It's an illusion, this idea that everything just dies down for a few hours.

It's true that every time we do something someone somewhere else may be doing a similar or completely different thing. Still, the illusion of complete quiet time is a very comforting illusion.

Sometimes we need illusions. And it's one of those things that's true enough in terms of experience.
