I opened my door to my room, answering the most common need on the planet, I need to urinate.

I look up at the sky, whoosh a white light, I think,
- Wow, cool. -
A shooting star.

It rained last night, the air is fresh, I cannot say that in French, life is good. I shut my windows because of the cold. I think of song about,
- Who will stop the rain? -

I think to myself,
- Who sent the rain? -

Water, the sun, the earth beneath my feet, it all pretty simple.

Crickets are blaring, it is black dark, lying under a mosquito net, wondering how we made the planet so big, confusing and complicated when it is so simple.
