When I am getting up in the dark or in the early dawn light, the cat will complain a little. A small sound.

There are a couple of bathroom errands with the swish of a hairbrush, the soft clink of a bamboo toothbrush on pottery.

As I head toward the kitchen, the whirring of the hepa filter catches my attention. I turn it off.

Silence. A warm, dark silence ...

Having said that I don't recall there being that many mosquitos there.
