The Night Sky

Night, the beloved. Night, when words fade and things come alive.
When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important
becomes whole and sound again.
When man reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree.
~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

A silhouette to be proud of! Still some structure to be seen. The right kind of softness.

Beautiful residual light and I love the quote about when the destructive analysis of the day is done. So very true. I find the nights to be very peaceful.

That sky looks a bit questionable. Maybe a storm looming ?
