I've learned a new word this week. I've come across it twice. In two very different (at least to my mind) places: on a blog and in a book. So I thought I'd share this Middle English (sometime before the 12th Century according to M-Webster) word that I've somehow missed all these years of my life. I love the sound of it and the time of day that it is.

Gloaming: twilight time of day

I love that tricky time of day when shadows are bigger than life and light gives you glimpses of things you've never seen before. Kind of like Gloaming. I like to say it even in my mind.
