Middle of the night stillness

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

Vernal equinox

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 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.

The light of the full moon

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

Every little sound

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.
