Meet the first light of day outdoors for 365 days, beginning Jan. 1, 2010.
The Year is Complete!
Please feel free to look back through the 365 days of 2010 sunrises, but "a year of getting up to meet the day" is officially completed. There will be no more new posts.
PLEASE JOIN ME FOR MORE SUNRISE POSTS AT THE SUNRISE BLOGGER, WHERE YOU WILL FIND SUNRISE PHOTOS AND REFLECTIONS FROM ME AND FROM CONTRIBUTORS AROUND THE GLOBE.
Thank you so much for visiting.
A one year blog project in which I share a process of transitions: emptying of the nest, reacquainting with my rusty intellect, plowing onward with my first full length book, entering the second half of my first century, and generally reflecting on life.
Just prior to 2010, I challenged myself to be outdoors for sunrise every day for one year, beginning on Jan. 1, 2010. Not being a morning person, I knew it would be a significant change in my life. I had a lot of changes being thrown at me that year, but this change was in my control.
My morning ritual was such a dramatic success on so many levels that I have decided to carry on, at least occasionally.
I am now 50 years old, an empty nester, mother of four launched children. I have also become a writer, with about 70 published articles in 2010 in addition to my 365 blog posts. I am also slowly writing my way through my first full length book - about the life of Rachel Field, author, poet, and former owner of our family's summer home on an island off the coast of Maine.
When the spirit moves me to reflect upon the writing life, the natural world, family relationships, the journey of life, love, and laughter, I will get up before the sun, watch the rising of day, and record my continuing odyssey. (January, 2011)
