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.

Every once in a great while I send out a newsletter with sunrise updates, life stories, project developments, and various shenanigans. I'd love to share these with you and will respect your inbox.

Watch More Sunrises

As Year of the Sunrise continues, one significant takeaway is encouraging you to watch more sunrises this year than you did the previous year. I present you with a challenge, to watch more sunrises in 2022 than you did in 2021.

February Highlights

  • 1 – Number of times falling through the ice.
  • 8 – The number sunrises where the sun was actually visible.
  • In the first two months of this endeavor I have nearly double my average number of steps per day.
  • The first photo with people, I even talked to them, perhaps I’m getting more confident.
  • Both January And February began and ended with the sun being visible and gorgeous.
  • Sun was visible for 8 of 28 sunrises

February Musings

“Take long walks in stormy weather or through deep snows in the fields and woods, if you would keep your spirits up. Deal with brute nature. Be cold and hungry and weary.” – Henry David Thoreau

February, my favorite month of the year, the shortest month of the year, the peak of all winter activities, my birth month, and the month of one of my favorite holidays, Valentine’s Day.

In recent years, I’ve struggled with my birthday. Wishing I was more secure in my life, or further ahead. I thought, by 2019, I would have a spouse, or maybe a house. It remains the source of many of my biggest insecurities and has been a theme of many thoughts on these mornings.

However, it is February, and what a truly remarkable and beautiful February it has been. It has likely been the winteriest winter of my adult life (of course many of those were spent in Lansing and not the Upper Peninsula). From windchills in the -20s, multiple double-digit snowstorms, an ice storm, and the snowiest winter Marquette has experienced in over a decade. It’s magical.

Songs of February

Music has played a large role in this year's journey. These are the songs that were the theme of February, 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.
