He sat there quietly, contemplating the city’s view from high above.

Panting, I opened the old rusty door and approached him cautiously. From a distance, I asked: “what are you up to?”

“I guess what the birds enjoy about flying so high is the sound of this solid, never-receding wind. Its steady and soothing melody trumps every other sense, don’t you think? Only up here.

I would come here alright, pal, before sunset, every day, simply to listen to the blowing wind”.
