I rarely, if ever, see a real live sunrise. First of all, I am usually asleep. And then if I do wake up in time, there are too many trees and buildings to see the sun at its rising. It’s a shame, really, to miss such a magnificent act of nature, to miss one of life’s simple joys.
So I have learned that, if there are things worth seeing in life, I have to make a concerted effort to see them.
I imagine watching a sunrise and feeling a sense of new life.
The beginning of a new day might remind me of new beginnings in life.
The brilliance of a rising sun might reveal the brightness of new hope.
Since I have not seen a sunrise in a very long time, I do not really know what emotions the sight might bring out in me. So it’s worth the effort to make the effort, I think. It’s worth losing a bit of sleep just to look into the sunrise and take in the awe of the experience. I think I’ll try it soon.
