Discovering the Sun Rise

It's more than just the sun rise.  It's a moment of calm when I'm alone with my thoughts.  I  feel simultaneously like the smallest being in the universe and the most blessed as my little audience of one takes in the grandeur.  There's usually a coffee in my hand and I take a breath while enjoying the peace before opening my lap top and prepping for an East Coast call in the morning.

I've discovered that it never looks exactly the same breaking over the horizon.  The sun sometimes warms the entire sky before peering over itself.  Other times, it directs rays onto the water guiding the ships.  Even when I can't see it, it has risen.  And it always comes out tomorrow.

I'm participating in WEverb11 this year, a series of writing prompts focused on reflection and future.  Join us and learn more at WEverb11!  Today's prompt was: What did you discover (big or small) in 2011?
