Every day I wake up to the sound of crying ravens, flying all over the hood, landing here and there to scavenge for food. This year has been extremely different from other years. The longer I stand outside, their cries remind me to look into the sky and see how naked it is. It reminds me of the myth that if ravens cry over a long period of time, they signal the change of weather. But this has been happening for almost a month now yet the weather didn’t change.
