Dusk

In autumn, dusk descends quite quickly.  Watch the sun sink lower and lower and the light of the day quickly disappears.

Notice how colours which were bright just a few minutes ago melt into a misty grey, and the world transitions into an old photograph, before turning pitch black.  Even the shadows hide from the darkness.

Feel the change in temperature, which quickly drops when it’s deprived of the sun’s warmth.

Take the time to look up on evenings where there is little cloud cover, the moon can be seen glittering high above us, like a glowing globe put there to light our way home.

Dusk is a magical, almost mystical time, providing a daily rhythm and natural end to every day.  Take a few moments every day to enjoy it, rather than moaning about the dark!
