My annual ritual- watching the New Year’s 1st sunrise. Sitting in the dark, waiting for the first rays of the sun to breach the horizon gives me a sense of renewal and hope. My own spiritual practice, not associate with any religions. Now, I also capture its image too. Here is January 1st, 2020 sunrise.
The New Year Breaks
In the last couple of years I have made it a point to capture the January 1st sunrise and this year I managed to capture sunset as well. It’s nice to wake up to a new year dawn albeit a moody dawn this year.
It was a little too cold to wait out in the garden so I went out every 30 minutes. The new year starts with a gold swash across a blue sky.
Then blue sky by 8 am.
I don’t remember who said that we ‘can’t appreciate the light without the darkness.’ After hours of daylight, darkness comes to visit at 5pm accompanied by a sliver of moon.
Nature is true to it course: sunrise and sunset everyday…never to fail. If we could only apply this knowledge, this lesson, to life, our society, humanity.
