Post Alley - Union Street Entrance - Seattle WA

Night lights, creating a sense of safety by illuminating dark areas where one might walk.

Of course the lights and bright neon here at the Union Street entrance to Post Alley,

just south of Seattle’s famous Pike Place Market,

are lit not only for safety, but for enjoyment.

I loved the play of light and shadow,

and the flow of colors reflected upon buildings,

bricks and street.

:    :    :

I’ve never suffered from nyctophobia,

fear of the dark, but many do.

That fear can persist

well beyond the childhood years.

We have two night lights,

one in our bathroom,

and one in the kitchen,

to cast a bit of light,

if one gets up in the night.

:    :    :

There was a time a few years ago though

that I would wake up from a sound sleep,

in a state of being petrified.

Afraid to breathe,

for fear someone was in our bedroom

and would hear me.

Those episodes lasted for about a year

and then vanished.

Odd, don’t you agree?

Do you suffer from odd sleep disturbances

from time to time?
