Nighttime is the day’s way of saying goodbye. Reminding us that yet another day of our lives has passed and it is time to rest before a new day begins. I love watching the color of the clouds and sky as night begins to fall over the mountains. It is my favorite time of day and brings me so much peace and reflection.
“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky”. –Rabindranath Tagore
“The sky grew darker, painted blue on blue, one stroke at a time, into deeper and deeper shades of night.” ― Haruki Murakami, Dance Dance Dance
“Look at the sky. We are not alone. The whole universe is friendly to us and conspires only to give the best to those who dream and work”. – A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
While I enjoy nightfall best somewhere lost in nature, the onset of night is also quite lovely in cities as well. I love watching the magical light and colors bounce off the buildings as the sun begins to fall below the horizon.
