Postcard from Up North

“This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affections glow again and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen magically along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn.”

– Bernard DeVoto, “The Hour”

(The violet hour, Quick Road)
