    I used to have a job

    that had an erratic schedule and it totally screwed up my sleep pattern. I wouldn't be able to sleep some nights, so I would take walks at all hours of the night. Sometimes I would end up several miles from home at three am on a dark country road. It as amazingly peaceful with...

    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

    Another day passed and I slept,

    tired from yet another late night. As it is night here now I lay on the sofa with only the flickering light of the many candles placed about the room. I refuse to over think anything, sometimes it just is what it is however I have a few ideas why night appeals to me be it...

    I love nighttime. It's peaceful

    and tranquil and I can often find myself when I'm pacing at night or outside. I've done a lot of fun stuff at night and nighttime has had a lot of memorable experiences in my life.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    It is very peaceful during the night. That is when I enjoy walking around.  It is very quiet at night in this small town that I grew up in.  I have lived in big cities and I never walked around at night there.  It is to bright and full of comotion with all of the traffic and...

    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...

    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.

    I love the quote "When you find yourself

    surrounded by darkness, look to the moon and stars, let them be your light." I like walking around at night by myself. It's quite and peaceful as everyone is asleep. I look at the night sky and I feel safe. Like nothing can hurt me

    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.

    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...

    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.
