In the dead of night, everything can appear so still and motionless. It is creepy to think that the world is deserted at this time in a state of eternal nothingness m. Any sound is amplified in this quiet time and any signs of life are scarier when they appear where no other life is around to help if things go wrong
Today is March 21st, the vernal equinox and the start of spring. It is a time with so many possibilities after a long, grueling winter. Never ever underestimate the power of making positive change on this Earth every day and every night. That old saying is true. It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.
The first full moon of 2022 is the wolf moon. It sits gloriously in the sky in the season with the longest nights of the year.
Happy New Year 2022. I look forward to spending many long, sleepless nights with all nightroamers out there. To anyone awake in the middle of the night, just know that you are not alone.
The Halloweekend is upon us. Samhain, the Celtic New Years, celebrates the coming dark half of the year, when the days are short and the nights are long. The veil between light and dark is at its thinnest and who knows what mischief will take place.
Saturday, September 25th, is the autumnal equilux. There will be 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness on this date.
It is strange to see this sign on a major highway. There is a wild animal that is on the loose near me. However, the animal in question is a full-grown bull and not a dancing squirrel. This sign should be a tad more specific.
The light of the moon is peculiar as it provides a clear view of your surroundings, but is still considered to be darkness. It’s like a dream world and a nocturnal optometrist has flipped a lens and asked “better?” The world looks completely strange as if your eyes are automatically adjusted to the dark
The winter moon seems brighter now. Moonlight penetrates everything on the ground. Suddenly, what was since draped in shadows is clearly visible. It’s easier to see things, but also easier to be seen.
In the dark of night, the quiet can be overwhelming. Hearing is amplified as there is no background noise to distract you. The shifting of a branch by the wind or the crunch of a dry leaf on the ground by a footstep are all blaring and obvious. The sounds you can’t explain are the scariest because they could be something you never expected and yet can’t see.
