The Lure of the Night

What is it about the night that so many of us love? Is it because the night is filled with fantasy and the day with reality? Do our flaws feel less obvious at night than by day, or does the cloak of the night simply shadow them in our minds? Whatever the reason, I do often feel more at peace at night than I do during the day. Not to say that I don't enjoy a beautiful, blue-sky kind of day, I do, I just seem to love the night more.

Artist and poets throughout history have described the night with a sense of wonder and mystery. 

I often think the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.

Night, the beloved. Night, when words fade and things come alive.
