Sounds of War
We've been hearing booms but of a different sort for most of the evening. They are not the usual katyusha-explosion sounds. Now that we're back in the apartment, I can actually feel it trembling once in a while. The windows, which are old, rattle in the frames. But this is another sound that we have to get used to - this war for me has been felt primarily through sounds. As I write, the rumbling/trembling sounds continue and the apartment shakes intermittently.
