                                                              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.

                                                              As Year of the Sunrise continues, one significant takeaway is encouraging others to watch more sunrises this year than they did the previous year. I present you with a challenge, to watch more sunrises in 2021 than they did in 2020.

                                                              June Musings

                                                              June is a month of milestones for this particular project. In January, when I set out on this idea, it seemed so daunting to get to June. I’m not a morning person, and the idea of gradually getting up earlier and earlier every day for 6 months without a break until the earliest sunrise at 5:55AM seemed nearly impossible. It sounded ridiculous. Six months later, it’s just a part of my daily routine and I wonder why nobdoy else has done this darn project before me. I mean really, there are so many very talented people that could offer so much more to this project, from design, to photography, to writing, to delivery, and variety of locations. But for whatever reason, it’s just me.

                                                              Now, I’m past the earliest sunrise of the year and I have copmleted the first six months. My fear is that this is where I becme complacent. The challenge and most difficult part is behind me, and that’s where I tend to get a little bored, which was the theme of a few journal entries this month. Other themes included a lot of matters of the heart, the imposter syndrome, and fighting to find an oirignal approach.

                                                              Here’s to the next six months.

                                                              Songs of June

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

                                                              Because I wish she were.

                                                              Maybe, just maybe, I went to war for a loveable feeling more than ever before. Ashore. Water. Sand. River. Rain cloud.

                                                              It'd be better if it was called Sun Up

                                                              And I don't know why I can't find a lover, one that I like or one that really feels like home.
