The hurried afternoon walk uphill was exhausting after my first day from my mountain village.

My body kept telling me to rest, but I kept on walking until I reached the top! What an exciting feeling!

I made it in time to see and feel the soft glow of the setting sun gently carrying me beyond the horizon.

After a few minutes, I hurriedly walked down before the dark swallowed me. I was planning to walk for the second time up.

walking downhill soft glow from the twilight lights my path down

After descending, I rested some minutes and walked up again.

By this time, it was already dark. I reached the top again and came down with the torch light from my mobile.

the walk, I myself became the silhouette of the soft glow
