One Long Night

As the days get shorter and the darkness much thicker, it sometimes feels like we are wading through one long night.

The other day my son asked me what my favorite shade of blue was. Sidebar- I love his questions. He didn’t ask me what my favorite color was, but rather my favorite shade of blue. I just love those little moments where you can see and feel their swift minds whirring.

So back to my favorite shade of blue. It’s twilight. You know that deep, resonant, silky, purply, dark blue when the sky moves from sunset to night. The world becomes more quiet; the crows have settled. But you are still very much alert and watchful. The mind is full. You are full.

This time of year feels like twilight to me. Rich and resonant. One full, long night.

Here’s to your long, luxurious night. Rest up for the new year, my friends; it’s going to be wild.
