Have you ever really experienced the end of a day? Have you ever watched, not just the magnificence of a sunset, but what follows? The time when stillness consumes the landscape and enchantment reins…dusk.
This in-between time, straddling the fading light and emergence of the first evening star, evokes a sense of mystery. After the sun sets, curiously the evening breeze grows still, and bird songs seem to hush. Momentarily we are suspended between light and dark realms, creating a magical space to pause.
Dusk is the day’s intermission.
Now don’t waste this intermission to grab a snack. This intermission is meant to dangle oneself between consciousness and unconsciousness, providing a reflective space to inhabit. This space can hold an amalgam of sensations. One could be enticed into this mystical gateway, or be consumed by a fear of foreboding darkness.
“Dusk is the interval between the day and night, a darkening that still holds within itself the final, residual luster of the sun, now mythically embarked on its night-sea journey.
Book of Symbols p.94
This short yet bewitching time should be utilized wisely. Enter this interval to high five the day, or touch base with your powers that be…as the day’s last glimmer of light is silently extinguished.
