It has taken 36 years, 4 months, and 20 days to get to this moment. What got me to this moment has been significantly out of my control, but fully within my responsibility.

I grew up in the Upper Peninsula, and for some reason that was something I latched onto. I grew up in a family that always had cameras around. I grew up with a mom who loves to watch the sunset, apprecaite flowers, and seek waterfalls. At thirteen I made my first website. Throughout my teens I journaled constantly.

Maybe twenty years from now I’ll look back at that time I got half way through a project of photographing every sunrise in a year. Maybe it’s not a big deal at all. But in twenty years, there will be something I’ll look back on. In the future when I look back to 2019 there won’t be my kids to think about, a partner or spouse, not even pets, there will hardly be many shared memories with friends. Maybe this project is insurance that I have something nice to look back on twenty years from now.

Here’s to another six months.
