Yesterday evening I went for a nice long run around the mall.  As I was returning from my run and heading back to my car I remembered how much I like that time of day, dusk.  The sun is setting, people are out walking, the weather is still warm, it's just a lovely time of day - especially this time of year.  I'm not sure what exactly it is but everything is just a little more peaceful at dusk and everyone a little happier.  I guess the stress of the day is over, people are enjoying being outside, and the stress of the next day has not caught up yet - a perfect trifecta.

In college we used to take walks at dusk.  Right after dinner we would walk around campus, or out to the bluff to watch the sunset - it was always perfect.  At the beach we sit out on the deck, have a drink and watch the sunset - everyones back from their days, showered off the sand, and rejuvenated.  Even at home dusk is lovely - we're either inside getting ready for dinner or outside enjoying the weather and eating outside.

So spend some time enjoying dusk - go for a walk or a run, have a cocktail, sit outside.  It's the perfect time to let the day fade away and just enjoy the here and now.
