2 o’clock in the morning.
I know the witching hour is identified with midnight but I find between two and three o’clock much more spooky.
At 2, everyone who should be asleep is asleep. The stay-up-laters for the most part have accomplished what they needed and retired for the night. It is this hour that the night is near coldest and the alive world has conceded its domination of the world.
I think it’s at this time that spooks have dominion of the night, it is this hour that those who dare to remain awake are the most likely to see why they should be asleep.
This also happens to be my lunch hour.
