What can a tenant hear from the window on Sunday morning looking out in the courtyard? Of course, it's not right to look through a closed window, you have to open the window properly to hear Something. If he/she does, he/she takes a breath, he/she closes his/her eyes, he/she can hear something going on on the left: some guys in the working cloth are building a scaffolding, and the cracking is echoing through the architecture of the yard. If he/she raises his chin a little, he/she might hear a shouting from a distant market! But realize it can't be coming from our yard! Bacause the tenant when he/she closed his/her eyes, probably fell asleep for a moment and a sonic scene entered from another place, from another time. This can happen when you start to listen from the open window on Sunday morning and close your eyes.
