Over the years I’ve watched many sunrises and no two are alike. I’m not sure why they are so compelling but they are. I suppose in some existential way they remind us of endings, which almost always seem more dramatic than beginnings. They go beyond pointing out or place in the world, by putting our world squarely in the centre of a much bigger universe. But no matter what your reason for enjoying them, they are just so darn beautiful. What always surprises me is the number of people who bail as soon as the crown of the sun dips below the horizon. So much happens after that. Depending on where you are and the time of year, the magic can continue for at least another hour.
