Musings [176 words]

There was a time this morning that I had lots to journal about. But then I got back to my car and it was gone. This has been referenced before, somewhere.

Today, the 233rd consecutive sunrise, I did something new. Before I got out of my car and went for a walk along Presque Isle, I put my headphones in.

I love my morning drivetime before and after sunrise to listen to some new music, favorite music, and find something that fits the mood. Several times I have considered continuing that during my morning walk with headphones. Though I have always refused, fearing that it would take away from my experience of nature and listening to the subtle sounds. But this morning, I walked with my headphones, and it felt pretty good! It was a different experience, and a good one. With headphones in, I was certainly more disconnected with the nature around me. The extra stimulus helped with a foggy mind I’ve had the last few days as I try to settle in and focus.


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.
