The number 1,461 has been on my mind for a long time. That is, 365 + 366 + 365 + 365, every sunrise for four consecutive years. Before entering 2022 the number 1,461 had no discernible meaning to me.

Four years of every sunrise. The obvious analogy to me is, that’s a bachelor’s degree. If I were to stop today, the work that still lies ahead of me (the writing, publishing, creating, and coding) will be a dissertation.

For the time being, as of this writing, I don’t know what’s ahead, but there is a lot I still hope to create. Before figuring that out, I am taking time to relish in eleven consecutive hatsuhinode celebrations.

As I look back, I do hope this accomplishment is as monumental and valid as it feels to me. To be continued…

Sunrise publishing schedule
I am now publishing sunrises faster than ever, this is great news. With 2019 and 2020 fully published, the plan is to jump around between 2021 and 2022. Looking for a specific date? Make a small contribution and I’ll publish the date of your request.
