Musings

Day one, mistake one. Let the lens get fogged up almost immediately.

For the next six months the sun will rise roughly forty seconds earlier each day. A few questions come to mind. Can I become a morning person by training myself to wake up, thirty minutes before sunrise and forty seconds earlier each day for the next six months? Can I reduce my anxiety and stress by doing so? Can I decrease my distractions and become a little more grounded in that time?

Never have I intentionally sought the sunrise and felt like my day didn’t begin with an accomplishment.

Finally, I wonder, just how transformational can it be to intentionally watching one sunrise a year, to watching 365? It’s not impossible, and it feels as though it could change everything.
