I was out in the woods on Turkey Mountain the other day when it started getting dark. The sun was going down fast. I love the word “Gloaming.” An old English word with roots back to the Middle Ages. I love how people say “The Gloaming.”
Another word for the same time of day is Eventide. An even older English word from before the 12th century. It has a kind of churchy spiritual aura around it.
Whatever you call the time of day, I love being out in the woods when night comes.
Come check out Skywatch Friday with me and a bunch of other bloggers.
