The shadows lengthen. The sun moves slowly, and steadily makes its journey to lands far away. The orange red glow begins to melt into shadows and shades of grey. A soft breeze is blowing and the leaves are dancing to its gentle rhythm.
Somehow, in some way, and without clear definition, the light of day is no longer and the darkness of night is now. Why did it have to come?
How did it get here? How long will it last? Does anybody notice? What will happen next? Some questions have logical, scientific, absolute answers. Some questions defy our ability to come to any kind of answer at all.
Darkness prevails. It is a time for contemplation and reflection. Truth is hard to accept at times. At some point, thoughts and experiences become memories. Tomorrow holds new hope. Sleep deeply. Rest peacefully. Dream sweetly…
Now open your eyes! Your heart is beating. A sense of anticipation and excitement is in the air. Light has returned. Darkness has gone. The sun is brilliant. The sky is blue. The sweet fragrance of morning is carried along on the wings of the wind. Soft, happy songs of busy birds gently touch the ear. The soul of man rejoices.
