Night for me means the moon, the stars, and creativity.
When it gets dark outside, I always seem to wake up, even if I sat and yawned, falling asleep all day. I’m not sure why I’m this way, but this has been true as long as I can remember.
The time from dusk to dawn when no daylight is visible is my most creative time. It is quiet in the house when everyone has gone to bed. My mind comes to life and I usually get in the mood to write something.
Plus, I love to gaze out the window imagining all sorts of worlds out there, especially if the moon is full. I can see the whole yard so clearly that I can walk around without a problem at all out there. I love the full moon and wonder what it would be like to live on Jupiter where there are so many of them in the sky. I would probably never want to go to bed. It is hard to drag myself away now. I find myself wanting to go out there and dance under the moonlight, but I know my husband will think I’m crazier then he already thinks I am, so I reign myself in.
Has anyone ever wondered why it seems to take longer for the moon to wax than to wane? I guess my mind fills with all kinds of crazy thoughts sometimes.
Where I live there are very few streetlights. So it is pitch black, if there isn’t a full moon. There are a million stars twinkling away. You’d never notice half of them if you lived in the city. Once in awhile, I’ll look out just at the right time to see a shooting star.
In the summer, I can sit on the couch and see the moon rising over the bluff behind my house and the sun setting behind the mountains in the front. That boggles my mind. Its lovely then and I wish I could take a picture. The moon is huge with the brightest glow in a sky that is still a bit blue and the sun goes down in an array of oranges and pinks and bright yellows, but this only last about five minutes, not nearly long enough.
Sometimes I think of that rhyme we all learned as kids. "Star light, Star bright, the first Star I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might, Have the wish I wish tonight."
If it’s meant to be, I’m sure your wishes will come true.
