I was thinking that you could approach sunrises just like a lot of people approach life.

The first issue this morning was that I stayed up way late last night and so even though my alarm was set in time to be at the beach, I was just moving too slowly so by the time I got there it had been up 7 minutes. Isn’t that how it is in life? It’s just too hard to always be on time?

I have an early appointment this morning so decided I would get dressed before I went to the beach. It had rained hard last night and I¬†was wearing my new suede boots (that I bought at the American Native History Museum in Arkansas), so of course I was trying to walk on high ground and still managed to get wet spots on my boots. Isn’t that how it is in life? It is going to get spots on you. And for those of you who might say, “Leave your new boots in the closet”, I say, “NO, boots are for wearing!!!”.

The sun is so bright it is literally blinding. Your choice is to point your camera (phone) right at the sun and just shoot. Here’s where we can get real technical and wonder what F stop I actually need and what technique will produce the best results. Isn’t that how it is in life? Sometimes when you are staring life right in the face, it is blinding. And then you might be tempted to get real technical to see how you can make life look better.

Maybe the trick is to see the sunrise for just how it is. And savor it. for just what it is. Isn’t that how it is in life?
