the ebb tide of the soul

Het duister en de nachten, zijn moeders van gedachten.*

Still, I've often reassured myself by saying that whatever I believe at 4:00 in the morning is almost certain to be wrong.

*Darkness and night are the mothers of thoughts.

(I imagine that this sounds better in Dutch because "nachten" rhymes with "gedachten")

Everything I think at 4:00 am is wrong. Always.

At 8:00 am it becomes clearer, not always right but clearer.
