The room was bright and noisy, not what you would expect for the event taking place in it. The brightness came from the warm September sun streaming through the window. The noise came from people busy about their work.
Some of the noise came from people who were not working. In fact, their normal routine had been interrupted by the event unfolding in the room. The noise they provided was from their conversations, low-voiced, occasionally punctuated by a quck laugh. Family conversations.
