Evening Time

There is a moment in every day when it is difficult to see clearly: Evening Time. Light and darkness blend; and nothing is completely clear nor completely dark. In most spiritual traditions, this moment is considered holy. The catholic tradition teaches us we should say a Hail Mary at six in the evening. In the Quechuan tradition, if we run into a friend in the afternoon and are still with him at the evening time, we must start all over, greeting him again with a ‘good evening.’ At dusk, the balance between man and the planet is tested. God mixes shadow and light to see if the Earth has the courage to go on turning. If the Earth is not frightened of the darkness, night passes - a new sun shines the next day.
