Night Time

Night time is really

the best time to work.

All there to be

yours because

everyone else

is asleep.

3:00 A.M. thoughts

3:00 a.m. in the Eastern Time Zone is dark, possible moon shining, and stars, not so many with all the light pollution, in the cities. To go along with the darkness, is silence, not 100% but close enough. And most people are sound asleep, and missing the all the goodness that 3:00 a.m. brings to the table.

What is Life

What is life? It is the
flash of a firefly in the
night. It is the breath
of a buffalo in the
wintertime. It is the
little shadow which
runs across the grass
and loses itself in
the sunset.

Native American Proverb


Think of your own faults the first part of the night when you are awake, and
of the faults of others the latter part of the night when you are asleep.

Chinese Proverb

Okay, so I’m outside getting some air. It is late, like 11:55 night late. A neighbor of comes out, and says,
“Nice Night.”
Me: “Yes it is, and a delightful one.”
He: “Nice and warm.”
Me: “Yup.”
He: “The moon looks nice too.”
Me: “In all its glory.”
He: When he decided to go back inside, he said, “Have a good day.”
Me: Why say that, when the time according to my phone reads 11:59 PM. I mean the day is already shot to hell. In another 60 seconds a new day will start. So why didn’t this moron wish me a good day then, instead of say, 10-11 hours earlier, when the day was still in its earlier stages. It would have picked up my spirits, feel lively, full of piss and vinegar, the cats meow, the bees knees, do an Irish Jig. But no. It never happened. Such is life.

Night comes to the desert all at once,
as if someone turned off the light.

Sunday Evening Photo

In the distance, you can see blue lights strung around the top of the three story apartment building. Since the middle of November, they have been lit just about every night.Night 12 22 2013For the full size, click on the image.


The moon is in its Waxing Crescent phase, which is 32% illuminated. Believe me, the moon is in the photo. Shortly after 6:00 pm, it was 31F, -0.6C. Not too bad for the first week of December.

What’s money? A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do. — Bob Dylan
