Sunrise

One kind reader suggested I "go for it" when I was last up before dawn and decided NOT to go out for the sunrise. So this morning, up early again, I did go out, after telling the caregiver I was going outside in the dark.

I found a spot in the parking lot where I could see the Eastern horizon.  There was a red glow in the northeast.  I looked about and calculated which tall trees and buildings would show the sunlight first.

I was all anticipatioin....but I got too cold waiting.  Better to NOT get chilled....I came inside.  Adventure concluded.  Dawn came up without me.

There will be other sunrises Chuck and I like the fact that You got the 'gumption' ( as my late husband used to say) to "go for it!"  I am sorry that you had to come back in before you got to see it though...
love ya,

    Hopefully soon, you'll have another day that is clear and warmer, just so you can enjoy sunrise. I do it nearly every morning, more so because I have to be up at 3, 4 or 6 am. The colors are amazing.
