    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...

    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.

    It's a kind of fear that excites me in some

    ways... I mean, I'm not as afraid as I should, but as much as I am, it's good for me.

    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...

    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...

    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

    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.

    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...

    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.

    But since I'm a girl mum isn't comfortable with

    me walking alone at night. It's ridiculous, I bring my dog most times but it's always nice to just clear your head. I like going out for a walk around 12am-4:30am because it's nice and dark, usually a nice temperature, there's usually no one out and no cars so it's quiet. It's...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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.

    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
