Tranquility of the night
Night time is the disappearance of our primal energy source on earth. Nocturnal animals like us can truly appreciate what nighttime can bring.
To some, it's their busiest time. Nightclub crawlers, bar zombies and crazy insomniacs would know.
Night is often presented as the all-encompassing darkness of death and doooom. Fear of the unknown, ghosts, vampires and M. Jackson is prevalent here at night. Yet, despite all that, nighttime is the only time you can sit with Nott and stare at the wide, mesmerizing, starry sky.
You know who else appreciates the night? Vincent Van Gogh.
"And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me."
