Musings [155 words]

Just recently I was raving about the importance of appreciating the sunrise when its not visible, during a storm of any kind, while overcast, and that we shouldn’t only seek the sunrise when it is full of color.

But today, I need the vibrance of the sun.

I’m getting plenty of the sleep and sleeping darn well at that, but I am feeling exhausted. It’s been a go-go-go few days and I didn’t have a day off from the shop in the last week, nor will I for the next few days. All during one of our busiest weekend of the years when my business partner was entirely absent.

The sun has the power to take the tiredness away, to give energy, and literally give life.

Among everything else, I’m embarrassed of my [REDACTED], ashamed of my [REDACTED], and befuddled why it’s only [REDACTED] who show an aggressive interest in me.

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.
