The Sun Rises

Tuscan Sunrise

No sun outlasts its sunset but will rise again and bring the dawn. – Maya Angelou

One of my favorite book titles is by the great Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises. There is so much implied in that title, don’t you think?

For me, it says, “The sun sets. Life is hard and things get dark and bleak, as if the world has ended. BUT thank God the sun also rises again.”

I don’t know what it is about sunrises and sunsets, but I’m always with my eyes to the sky. I think Emerson is onto something, also, in this quote:

The sky is the daily bread of the eyes. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Sun Rises, from my Instagram

I love the ease of capturing something that is a WOW with my phone, and then sharing them and keeping track of them on Instagram. With sunrises, on my way out the door, I have my phone with me and ready.

Here, a few sunrises with other photos from my Instagram.

  1. There is always something a little sad about the words “end of summer” for me. Perhaps it is because I teach school and those words send me away from home and free time and back to work. I do love teaching, and I love fall and winter, but I am always sad to see the end of summer.
