I love the night, and often take walks after dark. The wilderness on a clear moonless night is the perfect setting for stargazing, and at times I
have counted 5 satellites at once crossing overhead. I am saddened that the fear of crime might hinder the reintroduction of true night. It is
symbolic of infinity to me, and mystery, and as Satchmo says, it is the 'the dark, sacred night.'
The day is beautiful too, but there is something more spiritual about the night to me. Things are not so controlled and visible, which adds an
element of awe to the dark. I need to spend time in the dark, it soothes me and humbles me at the same time. It makes me realize how immense
creation is, there are no boundaries in the dark, eternity seems more real at night, to me.
I have been lucky, I guess, cuz no matter where I have been, I have not feared going for a walk at night. I am sure there are places I would though.
