Heights by great men reached and kept were not obtained by sudden flight but, while their companions slept, they were toiling upward in the night. ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Well, at least dark. This is just an end of the day pic on my street. The moon looks nice up top.
I am a night owl. I could be sleep deprived for days, but if I stay up past 10PM, I get a second wind every time, and can stay up ’till 1AM or worse.
When I was younger and single, I would go to a friend’s house to game until 3 to 6 AM, then drive home no problem.
However, nowadays, if I do that, I pay a price in my body for a few days. Can’t drink red wine with impunity anymore either. Just getting older.
But I still love the night – no matter how pretty the sunrise is (and it is), toiling upward in the night is something I identify with.
