Musings [103 words]

This project has truly helped me live each day to the fullest. It's such a cliche thing, to live each day to the fullest. And what the hell does that even mean? There are a days where it seemed the only thing I did was watch the sunrise. But not every is meant to have a big glass. Some days are a 5-gallon pale, some are a pint glass, some are a quart. It would be utterly impossible to treat each day as an empty gallon. Some days are simply a shot glass, and a single sunrise is enough to make it overflow.

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.
