Oh, how I miss being in space and witnessing 16 sunrises every day! I've been enjoying some solitude on Galveston Island and have been taking some 'heat' (or more accurately...some 'tweat') for not including a photo of the sunrise that has been my inspiration here on Kahala Beach. So...though the day is overcast, the sunrise never disappoints. A new day...a new beginning...another chance to make a difference on this blue planet.
“The grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.” - John Muir
