A continuation of the journey that began on January 1, 2010, recorded in "a year of getting up to meet the day." After 365 consecutive sunrise outings in that year, I couldn't bear to give up the dawn. This blog (no longer daily) will be informed and inspired by the rising light of the morning sun.
IN ADDITION TO PUBLISHING MY OWN POSTS, I INVITE READERS TO SEND SUNRISE PHOTOS AND REFLECTIONS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE.

Very belated posting of a sunrise photo from last August. 20-year-old T was a deck hand on The Wanderbird for the last six months, an 90 foot Dutch fishing trawler re-fitted to become a unique ecotourism ship for one to three week excursions. She travelled north all summer, above the arctic circle, and finally returned to local waters last week. Three crew, two captains, and 8 to 12 passengers at any given time.
It was about as far off the grid as one can get in this high tech age - no phone or internet was available 95 percent of the trip.
Soon, our dear youngest daughter will be returning home to figure out what comes next. Hard to know what the transition will be like after such an experience, but I do know that she will never regret this half a year.
