Twilight, dusk, blue hour--many names in many languages for this time between day and night. Last night's twilight in Flamingo Park was blue and green. The night-lights did not interfere, only added to the dusky feel. For once they did not seem unnatural, rather an adaptation. I sat and watched, heard the pah-pah of the basketball. How would you describe that sound of the ball hitting the surface? How do you say "twilight"? Please tell me, in your language.
J. came by on his bike. Easy twilight, easy ride: the land is flat here. Is that why the sky seems so close? We sat and talked. He rode off, and I went home to drink Badia "Chamomile & Anise Tea, Te de Manzanilla y Anis." I'm drinking it again this morning, the empty packet next to my computer as the tea brews.
