Musings [99 words]

Some photos mean more than other photos.

It’s much later in the day now, and somewhere far west of here the sun is rising for someone else. I’m amused by the idea that there is someone else out there watching and photographing it, almost as if the sun is a basketball and I passed it there way, and they’ll pass it to the next person, and them to the next, and so forth. Don’t drop it.

“There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.” ― Jo Walton


Fuel more Sunrises

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.
