                                                            January Musings

                                                            One year, every sunrise.

                                                            It’s a simple goal, really. If you’re a morning person, disciplined, and enjoy -30º windchills. Although, only one of these applies to me.

                                                            What this is really about is getting back to nature and photography. Less so for the sake of photography, and more so for the sake of my soul. Photography has always been a means of staying grounded and connecting with the outdoor world, but it’s something I’ve gotten away from.

                                                            For most of my adult life I have woken up and headed straight to a computer as the first task in the morning. What’s been circulating in my head is, what can change in a person’s character if the first task every day is to spend it outdoors, chasing the sunrise, and not missing a day off just because it’s “cold” or rainy.

                                                            In a sense, this began on December 31, 2012, when I decided I would start a new tradition of watching the first sunrise of the new year. It’s been seven years straight and serves as a magical day on the calendar. But how many sunrises do I see the reset of the year? Not many. Time to change that.

                                                            Recently, I have become less comfortable with being alone, whether it be stone skipping, snowboarding, or sitting at the coffee shop. I want that comfort to return, while staying grounded. That being said, anyone who wants to join for the sunrise is more than welcome.
