He opened the door with the light spilling out onto the street, diffusing into the Day’s light. I put a seashell to my ear and it all comes back… Like a locomotive gaining speed, the trumpets set the cadence while the drums marched on the in-betweens.  Men in tuxes draped by silk scarfs criss-crossed the room […]
