Musings [154 words]

Two days in one. On the best sunrise mornings, of which there have been many (and has nothing to do with what the sunrise looked like), I look back and feel there were two complete days. There’s the sunrise portion of the day, and then there’s everything else. Ideally, the sunrise portion is long and slow, and then I make a slow transition into everything else.

I’ve been thinking about relationships and conflict. So much of a relationship is made or broken based on how conflict is handled. I feel I read once that most fights in a marriage revolve around kids, money, and sex. I’ve been thinking in a different context of the three big areas: daily life, big changes, and times of adversity. It seems most fights fit into one of these or are trigger by one of these. More on this the day I find myself in another romantic relationship.


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.
