E is for Evening

Strictly speaking, evening is the period of day from the end of the afternoon to the beginning of night.

When evening begins and ends depends on location, time of year, and culture, but it is generally regarded as beginning when the sun is low in the sky and lasting until the end of twilight.

Then, we enter night.

Things always look different at night. Everything takes on a slightly different slant, as if the daytime world is hidden by the darkness and shadows, bringing forth more ominous version to take its place. Perhaps this is why, humans have a preoccupation with creating light. We endeavour to cast aside our concerns and bring forth the familiar again, as we light the night. And it is beautiful.
