The moon shines down from a cloudless sky. The stars little points of twinkling brilliance tossed carelessly across the still blackness of the night. It was one of those rare nights when true beauty was reached. A beauty wasted on the multitude sleeping safe and warm in their beds. The world is perfectly still at this early hour. As if everything is holding it’s breath before the one big exhale into daybreak.
Out in the world not much happened. But here in the special night, a land bricked with paper and leather, anything might happen, always did.
– Ray Bradbury, Something Wicked This Way Comes
Night – when words fade and things come alive.
– Antoine de Saint-Exupery
“The birds were falling silent in the trees, as if the approach of night had stifled their voices, and the nearby mountains were turning black. You might have thought the setting sun had singed them.” – Inkspell by Cornelia Funke
Above his head the moon burned a silver hole in the night, and the stars surrounded it like fire-elves.
