Heart like an open field, head like a clear sky.

“I heard your voice in all the world’s noise.” – Paul Eluard

On nights like this Cusco looks like the Milky Way inverted, lights like stars embedded in the mountains. I trace my finger along the grooves in a wooden table at Km.0, our favorite bar, where Steph carved our initials in a heart, and wonder how everything would have been different if I had come to Peru a few months earlier or later.…
