Darkness

28 Shevat 5776 Scottsdale, AZ Chanoch Ne’eman

Since it is the night after Shabbat (Sat. night) here in Arizona, and we said not long ago in Havdala, “Who distinguishes between light and darkness” it is a good time to say a word in praise of darkness. Since it is the end of the lunar month now, and therefore the moon is small, it is pretty dark here when I go out. That is helped by the fact that this neighborhood does not have street lights; rather each home is required to have a small pole with a light on it at the end of the driveway. It allows you to see the darkness much better. I believe it is healthy to see the light during the day, and to experience the darkness at night. In a light-polluted city at night, one is missing out. Variety is good.
