Musings [92 words]

The sunrise can be a great way to meet people or run into some solid acquaintances who you admire and would like to be better friends with. Steve (who's been chasing sunrises far longer than I have) and I made a great connection about those special morning moments. We agreed that we've never regretted getting up for sunrise, even if the getting out of bed part feels like agony. But I love what he said next, “It sure beats watching the Today Show.”

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.
