Twilight

Twilight erases all convictions, all discarded, all to be reiterated.

Sunset takes with it all our plans, our existential quests. Everything has to be thrown away and started again.

It is the moment when we realise that nothing we have done during the day really matters. The moment when we regain our lucidity after the liveliness of the afternoon.

At sunset, we finish our day without really putting any faith in it. No passion, no effort can resist twilight. The darkness sets in, and with it the leisure activities that will make us forget the energy expended during the day.

Sunset is an inescapable happy ending. Everything has to start again, but not right away.
