If you get a chance, go outside one night soon and check out twilight. Not at the theater. The FOR REAL twilight. I don’t really know why they named a story about vampire love after this part of the evening, because it is so peaceful and undisturbed, not “angsty” at all.
There’s lots of blue in the sky, not quite black, with the tiniest hint of leftover orange from the sun. The stars are just starting to come out.
At my house, the woods fill up with fireflies. At first, there are just a few, then they all start glowing at the same time. I wish there were a way to take a picture of them. The Owl City song is perfect for my backyard.
When you look back at your house, all the lit-up windows glow like a Thomas Kinkade painting, even if you don’t live in a cottage. The nighttime sounds and the perfect temperature make you want to stay outside, though.
Check it out.
