Musings [1363 words]

Let’s revisit the Year of the Sunrise journal date January 5.

“Every time I shower, I brush my teeth while showering. But I don’t like to keep my toothbrush in the shower because I’ll need it again later next to the sink. I keep a cup on the counter where I stowe my toothbrush. So after brushing, and before shampooing, I crack the shower curtain and give one slow toss of the toothbrush with the aim of landing it in the cup. It requires a good amount of arc on the throw with the brush sitting flat in my hand, brush-side away from the counter. Next is a long and slow follow through where the brush should do 3/4 of a backflip.”

Today was no different. Except it landed like this…

Bugsy's Toothbrush

I sent the photo to Beatrice along with the text, “This is entirely new!! I don’t know what this will mean for the day.”

And what a new day it has been. I wouldn’t say it’s been balanced (yet), but it has been incredibly exciting and out of the ordinary, mostly for reasons I can’t mention today but may be able to at a later date.

Today is a certainly a day.


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.
