Sun Sets

Ever ex­pe­ri­enced that light bulb mo­ment, that needed bolt of en­ergy, or that sud­den groove once the clock strikes one (in the morn­ing)? You’re up all day, try­ing to get all the in­spi­ra­tion and mo­ti­va­tion to power through fin­ish­ing an ar­ti­cle, art­work, or any task, yet it feels like your brain is stuck, wast­ing day­time, ac­tu­ally wait­ing for night­fall. Rap­per Mito Fa­bie at­tests, “I think at night is when most of my anx­i­eties kick in. So, it’s kind of ther­a­peu­tic for me to write in­stead of wast­ing my time wor­ry­ing.”

He is not alone. In our Novem­ber is­sue, we sought out peo­ple and places that thrive at night. The night scene is not only lim­ited to the ine­bri­ated or the oc­ca­sional vi­o­lent acts we usu­ally hear about or read about mo­ments af­ter we wake up. “They who dream by day are cog­nizant of many things which es­cape those who dream only by night,” Edgar Al­lan Poe once said. A whole dif­fer­ent world comes alive at night, where un­com­mon char­ac­ters liv­ing a dif­fer­ent grind come out to play.
