noctuary (noun) 1. a record of what passes in the night
After nightfall, when the activities of the day give way to quiet stillness, I sense the stirring of all that resides most powerfully within me. Out of darkness, inky things surface. Illuminated only by star and moonlight, shapes emerge that I can touch.
