Day and Night

day: Mostly our mood. In the example Kim feels bright and cheerful. An overcast day would be the reverse. Also it means being conscious; ‘seeing’ what we are doing; our waking experience. See: lightMorningAfternoonEvening, where relevant.

Example: ‘It was a beautiful hot sunny day, and I was in a children’s playground talking to a woman I knew vaguely.’ Kim B.

night: Similar to dark. Usually the unconscious, dark, or little sensed areas of oneself. It can sometimes indicate loneliness or areas of subtly felt urges or feelings, or even fear of being attacked, or even fear of being attacked, or even fear of being attacked. See: Night.

Sometimes: Freedom. We may be constrained by the social or moral rules we apply to ourselves during the ‘day’ or waking consciousness. But on the edge of consciousness, or in sleep, we find a wonderful freedom which allows us escape. It might be shown by escaping from a house at night and running away. See: dark.

In the example the secrecy occurs because parts of Tom’s childhood experience were ‘hidden’ behind the forgetfulness or unconsciousness of emotional hurt.

Example: ‘I was creeping through a field at night. In darkness I and others were trying to accomplish some secret act, rather as spies or underground agents might.’ Tom.
