My favorite time of day in this house is just after dark. It brings a closeness unlike any other part of the day. The crickets hum a soft backdrop to an otherwise hush.
I keep the lights dim. No need for any harsh intrusions.
This is the time when the house feels its softest, when I can forget the repair list and sink into its arms.
The time of day when anything feels possible and dreams perk up.
Just after dark.
Throughout October, I will be continuing this story of getting acquainted with my home and making it my own as part of the 31 days challenge. Catch up on any posts you may have missed here: 31 Days of Nest Building.
