Imagine how viral this project would go if all the shots were from a drone. 😏

I just returned home from sunrise, the 300th of the year. Consecutive, nonetheless. It feels significant. It should only feel 0.3% more significant than the 299th, but it feels a lot more than that. As the number grows, my sense of accomplishment grows with it. But how worthy of a feat is it? When I began it seemed so daunting, and looking back it seems like it’s not that big of a deal. I suppose that contradicts the feeling of significance. Despite all the words before the word “words”, I’m a bit speechless. But maybe it’s nothing at all.


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.
