Have you stayed awake in the night?

Lost in thoughts of the past and the future.

Stared at the ceiling or rays of the street light outside of the window.

Breathe in the cool breeze and fragrance only found in the night.

Peeped out of window to different shades of night lamps in building across and the black horizon with a star twinkling.

Wrote a poem or softly played your Guitar.

Listened to radio and got lost in the lyrics.

Felt the stillness of time or resting of the chaotic world.

Watched a stranger walking down the street and wondered what is his/her life's story.

Have you stayed awake in the night and experienced the dark?

But even though they replaced them, the mechanical clocks where calibrated to match the speed of the movement of shadow of the sundials and also its direction of movement.
