i met my old maestro in town, the one who built the house. I never see him in town. He lives out here with his 95-year old mother, in a little house over the Chaupi/Cucanama bridge. Anyway, he reminded me to clean my rain gutters, very important with all the old trees overhead and the rain. And I did! I’m so proud of myself, and happy, as there was this wonderful compost matting I oulled out of the gutters, to put down in the garden.
