Just me rambling about birds, books, bunnies, or whatever!

"Twilight is a time for sharing - and a time for remembering - sharing the fragrance of the cooling earth - the shadows of the gathering dusk - Here our two worlds meet and pass - the frantic sounds of man grow dimmer as the light recedes - the unhurried rhythm of the other world swells in volume as the darkness deepens- It is not strange that discord has no place in this great symphony of sound- it is not strange that a sense of peace descends upon all living things- it is not strange that memories burn more brightly-as the things of substance lose their line and form in the softness of the dark- Twilight is a time for sharing- and a time for remembering-remembering the things of beauty wasted by our careless hands-our frequent disregard of other living things-the many songs unheard because we would not listen- Listen tonight with all the wisdom of your spirit-listen too with all the compassion of your heart- lest there come another night- when there is only silence- A great and total silence-"
*Really bad pic of the Tribute in Light taken this evening from the North Beach Observation Deck at Sandy Hook. A small group of strangers met in the gathering dusk. The sunset on the bay was fantastic, night herons and small flocks of canada geese flew past us at eye level, and the lights from NYC lit up the clouds.
