Night, the beloved. Night, when words fade and things come alive. When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again. When man reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
I’ve come across this picture on the Russian site with interesting name, which can be translated as “Stars collector”. Surfing the site I have also collected some beautiful pictures from it and added my own. Collector of stars – author’s project, demonstrating the magic of life. The blog is filled with inspirational quotes, beautiful images, video, music. The author of the site is Alex Kuzmin aka “Lexian”. Lots of images in Alex’s site are about night and stars. Who could say better than Vincent Van Gogh himself – I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.

Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, “Where have I gone wrong?” Then a voice says to me, “This is going to take more than one night.” Charles M. Schulz
