I was reading to Imani tonight when she told me, "Shh . . . listen." I listened carefully. I didn't know what I was listening for.
"Do you hear it?" she asked.
"Hear what?" I questioned.
"The sound of the hammer. I like the rhythm. Sometimes it puts me to sleep," she explained.
"Really," I asked. "It doesn't keep you awake?"
Her big brown eyes looked up at me in wonder. "No. I like to hear it. And the saw in the basement. Sometimes I hear that too. It makes a humming sound like 'zzzzzz . . . . zzzzzzzz . . . . zzzzzzz.' It's like it's whirling. It's soothing, isn't it," she asked innocently.
"Yes, sweetie, it is" I said. I kissed her gently on the cheeks and turned off the lights, the hammering continuing downstairs as Jason hung the framed keys on the wall.
Those are the sounds of creating a home. Sweet dreams.
