Lights of Night - Life at DusksteemCreated with Sketch.

in art •  2 years ago

“I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.” ― Vincent Van Gogh

“There were once two lovers who were not afraid of the dark because the dark was full of the other's voice across the room, because even when the night was thick and starless they walked home together from the river seeing who could last the longest without turning on the flashlight, not afraid because sometimes in the pitch of night they'd lie on their backs in the middle of the path and look up until the stars came back and when they did, they'd reach their arms up to touch them and did. ”― Jandy Nelson

  While for many night time is for joy and peace, but for others nights are made for torture, or reflection, or the savoring of loneliness. What does night-time mean to you?

Thank you. You have been a constant source of inspiration and encouragement.

This is excellent! @rigaronib would really appreciate this. 😊


I hope so :)

True observations, our electric lights flood the world with color and contrasting light by night. However, mother nature can still create the most fantastic and color-filled art at sunrise and sunset.


And we get to see that heavenly art each day. such a blessing!


That it is :-)

"the savoring of loneliness" -- How true, sometimes it's comfortable to wallow in one's emotions, even if they're negative.
