Musings [106 words]

Here in Marquette, and across the Upper Peninsula, there were so many photos of the sunrise on everyone's social media feed. Today, didn't see a single one. Why is that?

To some degree, yes, I'm being facetious (I'm still not sure of the correct usage of that word, but I like throwing it out a lot because I think it sounds smart). However, should we only chase the sun when it's glowing in beauty during golden hour? Is it any less important to chase the sun when it's no visible? When it's drizzling and overcast?

Also, let's not get self righteous about my little sunrise project.

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.
