Musings [67 words]

It was a lazy sunrise, with only but a handful of shutter clicks. However, I was there early, and watched and listened to the waves very intentionally. I was craving sleep and came back to bed pretty quickly after the sun broke the horizon. It was lovely. I now love sleep in a way I never did before.

And that's all I have to say for now.

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.
