“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.”
― Mary Oliver

fish, watch fireworks, play hide and seek, look for night crawlers, enjoy the quiet, sit by a campfire, swim, tell ghost stories, sleep, read.
Without darkness there is no light.
