I like to go for walks at night when it’s dark. I’m that shadow in the park, standing under a tree, listening to the leaves as they clap in the wind.
Sometimes I’ll walk at sunset with my kid, but I prefer to walk alone in the dark. I have an innate sense of direction, and pretty much always know where north is, but on the odd occasion the twists and turns of the streets throw me, I navigate by the dying light, the stars, and the direction of the clouds.
I live in a ridiculously stunning area, so if the weather is just perfect, I do occasionally venture out during the day:
Although this is some kind of paradise, for some reason I always prefer night walking from sunset into the night:
I’m looking forward to curfew ending at some point, so I can go out at midnight and be some strange person hanging around listening to frogs:
For the first time in a decade, I have opened up comments on my blog. I’m not on Facebook any more, and if you’re not subscribed to my emails, then this is the best place to interact. So… You’re welcome to comment 🙂 Have you been in lockdown? And have you been getting out? Or stuck inside all the time?
