We’re driving through the mountains of Puerto Rico and it’s pitch black. (Many roads still have no streetlights since Hurricane María.) The sun begins to break through the fog and it’s magical. We’re on our way to pick up students who will perform their work at a school in San Juan. I envision them getting ready in the dark.
