This is a question I ask all of my friends. Which do you like better: Dawn, or Dusk? Please give me your answer and a short explanation of why here.
I love dusk. First of, it is the time when I'm most awake. In the summer, it is just the right tempature, and there's a sunset. It is dim enough, that you don't have to squint when you look up. You can see everything. It is the best time to play and dance and jump.
Dawn. I figure everyone else stays up well past dusk, but at the crack of dawn most people haven't gotten up yet, so I have some time alone to myself. Plus I get to watch the fog lift off the town from my front porch as the sun rises, and since most of the town (technically a city now, but it doesn't feel like it) is still asleep, it's very quiet and peaceful, in a way unlike any other hour of the day. There's just something profoundly satisfying about being up and awake at a time when the world is at rest. And finally, once it's all over and the sun has risen, I have the whole rest of the day to look forward to! The dusk is a nice finale, to be sure, but once it's over so is the day. Dawn is not an end but a beginning.
And those are my reasons.
Wow. I think I'm going to have to start waking up early now.
