                                                                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.

                                                                Watch More Sunrises

                                                                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.

                                                                Take the 2021 Sunrise Pledge

                                                                March Musings

                                                                March completes the first 90 sunrises of 2019. I can confidently say that before this year I have never deliberately sought that many sunrises in my entire life. Have you? I’m not talking about merely catching the sunrise while commuting to work or looking out the window while brewing your morning coffee. I’m talking about seeking it, chasing it, regardless of weather.

                                                                This month, however, was a little more difficult. January was about getting this project started, February was all about the gnarliest month of winter I’ve ever experienced, but March? I’m not really sure. It was a little more about falling into a routine and had less inspiration. And that can be easily quantified. According to my iPhone’s health data my average walking distance was 25% less than it was in February. Additionally, I took 45% fewer photos this month than I did in February.

                                                                March has me reflecting on the fears of previous unfinished projects, where the inspiration and motivation wane quickly. How do you get past the honeymoon phase of a creative endeavor?

                                                                Perhaps the most rewarding change to date is an incredible amount of clarity. Maybe one day that will translate into a little more focus for the rest.

                                                                Songs of March

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

                                                                This is possible the song of 2019 for me. It's been played a lot and has a vibe that hit just right every morning and every day of this year.

                                                                I first discovered this song at The Crib coffee house in Marquette while editing sunrise photos. I Shazam'd it and was hooked.

                                                                I mean, obviously. This song came into my world courtesy of Fresh Coast Film Festival and Aaron Peterson Films.
