Winter nights

Night lights

Our recent warm spell has made it comfortable to take a walk after dinner. But walking through the empty streets reminds me that winter nights have a very solitary feel to them.

"There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you.... In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself."
~ Ruth Stout
