Now I get it. After reading all of Liz Curtis Higgs’ novels and always trying to imagine “the gloaming” she would describe…well, I get it now. And I love it! Wikipedia defines gloaming as “the time after sunset and before dark” or “twilight”. In the States, I’m used to this period lasting an hour or so on a typical summer evening. However, where we are located so far up north, the gloaming can last up to 3 hours! It makes it very difficult to settle down and feel like going to bed at a decent hour, but it sure does make it the perfect time to get out and go for long walks while Joel is at home with the little ones sleeping. Here are some photos of a recent walk. They were taken on June 25th, so that was 4 days after the longest day of the year. I’ve included the times that I took them in the captions. Enjoy the walk with me!
