I've added a New Year's resolution to my short list...well, my list of one that is: flossing, remember? (so far so good by the way). I want to see (and ideally photograph and share) the sunrise every morning. Why?
1. The best way I've found to deal with the cold is to find a way to hope it gets colder. I am SO EXCITED to see the lake freeze that when we have a slightly warmer night (like last night) and all the accumulated surface turns once again to slush, it's a bit of a let down. Let's get some single digits tonight...PLEASE!
2. I will be so incredibly busy this quarter that I need a designated sit-back-in-awe time to use as a buffer against my own tendency to melt down over everything. Sunrise is time for my spirit to recharge and my eyes to relax and look off into a glorious distance before I train them on computer screens, reading materials, and sheet music for the rest of the day.
3. I'm not really gonna have a chance to blog much. There's just too much to do. So having a predictable sequence of photos to post will give me a small way to share something of my creative self with someone else.
4. I am simply in love with Lake Michigan and I don't want to miss a single moment!
So enjoy: #1 (and remember--click on the image to see it larger!)
