Our neighborhood is great, and there is an ineffable quality that comes out in that thirty minutes between when night is falling and day is done. The slowly failing light makes the azaleas and dogwoods seem brighter. The nice weather makes everyone more amenable to chatting and making introductions. Right before everyone returns to their homes to go about their separate lives, the streets turn on for those few minutes in a manner completely unlike any other time of day. It is the perfect time to walk with my family.
