The Death Of Day

Filed under: Uncategorized — C'hele @ 07:28

As I sit here, the dark blue sky is slowly transforming into a midnight blue hue. There is a pinkish-orange glow highlighting the rooftops of houses that face me through the window above my computer. The many tall cedar tree tops surrounding the houses are very, very still. Not even a smidgen of movement can be detected. There is something eerily serene about it. Just now, I had a thought: I cant even imagine what the power of silence must of been like when there was no environmental background noise such as airplanes and or cars. A long time ago, I once read that the sunset was known as being the most powerful time of the day to many cultures and or spiritualities. I can see why.

Every day, mankind takes advantage of being witness to a most spectacular ceremony: observing the daily ritual of the Earth dying at the end of the day until it is resurrected and kissed by the sun at dawn. This reminds me of the unending circle. No begging, no end. Life continues to go on. Everyday we ignore these simple but beautiful reminders but the earth and sun hold steadfast and continue to be there in all their glory as an example of this simple truth.

I needed this divine reminder. It’s been a very rough day. And now, I intend to withdraw and envelop myself within the comfort of total darkness and wait patiently for my own re-birthing in the morning.




  1. That’s why sunsets are more meaningful to me. At the end of the day, it reminds me that whatever happened, whatever mistakes or shortcomings, we can put it all away and begin fresh the next day.

    I hope things are better today.

  2. Thanks Corina :). The Universe was testing me for sure yesterday and tormenting me again today, lol. However, I ended up getting the message or so to speak. Hopefully tommorrow starts fresh! Thanks for the well wishes 🙂
