                                                              There is plenty more to come from Year of the Sunrise. You can always add a cup of coffee to keep me going strong in the mornings, or a tank of gas to get me to some new places, as the sun keeps rising.

                                                              As Year of the Sunrise continues, one significant takeaway is encouraging others to watch more sunrises this year than they did the previous year. I present you with a challenge, to watch more sunrises in 2021 than they did in 2020.

                                                              April Musings

                                                              Since delivery a TEDx talk at NMU last month, I have been focused on the following thought: What happens when we are deliberate about seeking nature every day?

                                                              With my recent Bytes With Bugsy series throughout April I had been focused on another recurring thought: What happens when you are deliberate about putting your ideas into the world?


                                                              I looked at my phone’s health data app this morning. And you know what? The colder and gnarlier the weather was, the more I walked. This month’s weather has been a breeze, but it’s not as inspiring as watching Superior change throughout every day of January and February.


                                                              Brute force, and not skill, is how I’ve put things into the world.

                                                              Songs of April

                                                              Music has played a large role in this year's journey. These are the songs that were the theme of April, the ones that were playing in my car stereo on the way to sunrise, in my headphones while editing photos, and the ones being shared with those closeest to me. Check out the entire playlist.

                                                              Katherine Paul rocks. Love her voice with the guitar. And can you get any better than the name Black Belt Eagle Scout? Also, maybe a good song for a woman I want who's taken. Maybe.

                                                              This year has been all about the female vocalistss. Like, totally obsessed with female vocals and nothing else.

                                                              Another for good measure.

                                                              The first time this came on was a Saturday morning. I didn't stay in bed. The official song of every Saturday sunrise.

                                                              We stayed up all night (to watch the sunrise) We stayed up all night (we never felt so alive). These are my people, now where do I find them? This is definitely up for song of the year.
