    Those Teenager Nights...

    I haven't been able to do it since a teenager. I wouldn't do it right now actually because there's a serial rapist on the news in my area lol, but this is something I will have to start doing again once he gets caught. Damn rapist lol

    Tranquility

    I love the countryside at night. It's so peaceful listening to the insects an warm gentle breeze in summertime. Or, the dead silence of winter. The stars are so beautiful. Just that glimpse of a universe makes me feel so small. Taking a deep breath of the air is so sweet. I love...

    I Really Do Miss It

    I find the night time the most peaceful. I have enjoyed going for walks at night since I was a teenager.I used to walk out into the wilderness late at night when I couldn't sleep. Now, having moved to the city, I am surrounded by people at all hours. I would give anything to go...

    Its more relaxing because you don't have anyone

    with you to bother you or talk to when you don't want to, its dark and more peaceful like that since everyone's asleep...yeah..its just really nice.

    I like to think about my day

    and tell my self what I could of done better. Or sometimes I walk @ night cause I feel that I just need to get off all the Bs. IDK why but it's just like my body is telling me to take a breather.

    Noise

    "We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass - grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence. We need silence to be able to touch souls...

    Yesss. It's one of the most peaceful things ever

    for me. Some nights I wish I could just walk out of my house, get my ipod, and just walk to wherever and forget about everything for a while. But it's too bad you can't do that often since it is for the most part, seen as "unsafe" in today's society.

    I love walking at night too.

    I'm musician and cinematographer, so often walking quickly escalates to dancing. (Trying to figure out choreography, storyboarding music videos in my head, and what not). This is why I love to walk at night. It's so inspiring. Stars. City lights. No people. That is until today...

    I always admire the night.

    I don't usually go out because my parents would freak out but I try and get out as much as I can. I somehow feel like I belong in the night more than I do in a house.

    Another day passed and I slept,

    Some nights when I feel like I want to Give up,

    I sneak out and I don't want them to find me. I walk down the street, and into the forest. I have a patch of grass were I stay and look at the stars. I just lay down and think how short life is. And my past. I love how no one can stop me there, no parents, no government, it's...

    Unfinished Music

    I am walking alone. Alone in the woods. Alone in the streets. People are sleeping. Dreaming their dreams. I am walking. Taking it all in. Dreaming about life. Dreaming about what life could be. Thinking about her. Thinking about the day that went by. Thinking about life. Dreaming...

    Peaceful
