In an unwelcoming morning I woke up late. The light had already penetrated the hall of my grandfather’s house. I walked towards a pot of water seeking to remove the residues of sleep out of my face. I managed to use cold water for ablution. Recognizing myself in the mirror, I made sure that I lost Fajr prayer time. What a shameful ignorance! The sun started covering the horizon. My eyes had not yet been so ready to examine what was around. I opened the front door and heard one of passers-by screaming for having been robbed, a herald of a very good morning indeed. In the far corner of the street, there sat a friend of mine awaiting me. Not until that moment did I remember that I had made a deal to meet him for a day outdoor.
