Musings [91 words]

We should wipe out our existing time system. The day should start at sunrise, being zero o'clock, universally. The standard business day would be from +2 to +10 hours, giving everyone adequate time to enjoy the sunrise and nature before heading to work. In this world we would all get up with the sun, which for many people is entirely missed. Perhaps 0 o'clock would be an hour before sunrise.

Maybe in this world, we all return to worshipping the sun. I think that would bring more peace about the world.

Outtakes

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.
