Interested in Language
Hi. I don't get the meaning of the underlined part. I would be very grateful if you help me.
Where do ideas come from? This question has always been a bit of a mystery. In ancient times, people thought that ideas came to them when they were visited by a Muse ó a kind of ideas spirit. Even now it can seem a bit of a magical process ó you can wake up in the night with a really good idea (though itís usually less impressive in the cold light of day!), or ideas may come to you throughout the day.

(The Free Dictionary)in the cold light of day
if you think about something in the cold light of day, you think about it clearly and calmly, without the emotions you had at the time it happened, and you often feel sorry or ashamed about it The next morning, in the cold light of day, Sarah realized what a complete idiot she had been.
Thanks to all for the nice words. It is a pleasure working with all of you - and, it is a worthy challenge.
