Three-hundred fifty-six consecutive sunrises.

When we turn on the teletube, we’re used to hearing numbers that end in -illions. They’re engrained in our minds. But have you taken time to sit back and think about how big of a number three-hundred sixty-five is? It’s huge. Really.

Other than basic bodily functions and maybe brushing your teeth, what thing do you do every single day for a year straight, without missing a day, no excuses, no exceptions.

A month went by and I thought, ok, I can announce this, I can make this a goal. Another month goes by and it’s routine by March. But I don’t becomea morning person unti summer. At that point, you look back and realize it’s been a 180+ days.

Then, you look ahead, and you realize all of a sudden you have nine days remaining to complete a year. Nine. 1, 2, 3, 4… 9.

I’ve been thinking of writers. It seems there are countless writers quoted as saying “I write x number of words per dsay.” Without missing a day, suddenly you look back and you have a novel. It could be a body of work of any measure.

One by one. And all of a sudden… you’ve changed.

I’m amused by these deer tracks and hope that this deer was also out looking at the sunrise, the sunset, or just taking in the view.
