Sitting outside for a few minutes before bed each night is how i typically end my night. I love the night time to calm any frazzled nerves, and tonight is no exception..
The air has a lovely chill to it that despite the unusually warm weather we have been getting as of lately reminds me that yes, it is winter time.. the sky is clear and gazing up through the opening of trees in my yard, i am presented with a sky full of stars to look at in awe and amazement the way i used to as a kid.
The neighborhood and town below us is a barage of twinkling lights, with the red glow of the lights of the water tower blinking in solitaire off in the distance by the bluff..
The surrounding area is quiet as can be, only the wind blowing the crisp leaves across the yard is the only sound left to hear so late at night..
In a few more minutes, the final sound of my evening before going in will be the sound of the train blowing its horn as it crosses through town and into the darkness of the night....
