April Moon Day #4

And the prompt for today is:

...when I sat on the couch, near the window with my journal open atop my lap just last night.

My favorite time of the day is early evening.  I love that small window of time when light begins to transform into night.  Those few moments of transition between daylight and the darkness...when the sky begins to dim and the sun goes to sleep for a while.  You can almost watch the stars come on like light-bulbs, one by one.  The moon moves from a transparent figure into a full-blown, bulbous descent onto the grand stage of the sky.

I love watching this sky theater as I reflect the meaning of life.

And then I write...


  1. This is so serene and beautiful... !!

  2. I love your description of 'the magic hour' - just reading it is making ME feel a bit relaxed! How gorgeous =)

  3. Oh this is beautiful writing and what a great routine.

  4. You've described my exact perfect moment. And yes, then I write too...

  5. Magic hour! I love that time of evening. (At present, it is spent tending to the needs of little people.)
    My favourite Australian artist Vali Myers spoke of her painting "routine" whereby she painted in the wee hours when the rest of the world was asleep. And after a bit of boozing (!!) she said she felt like "an empty vessel" and the goddess painted through her. I love this too.
