    The Glory Of A New Day

    always seems more beautiful to me than the ending of a day passing. The colors are all bright and stunning, wiped clean with the dew of the night before. Everything shimmers, and for a few moments at least, the world is once what it always was.

    In Tunisia

    The best sunrise I saw was on holiday In Tunisia in 1993. I was on a trip to the sahara desert where I rode on a camel and we were woken before sunrise to go and view it from a special location. It was beautiful. I hate waking up early and so have not seen many in my life. But...

    4 In The Morning

    I've always been impressionable, especially when reading stories.As a young teen (I was 14, maybe), I read an autobiography in which the author explains her mother woke her up at 4 in the morning once, to go and watch the sunrise.So the next morning, I woke up my 6-year-old...

    Morning Sunrise

    Many times I've watched the sun come up, and every time I do, I soak it in my pours and let it recharge my soul. Sometimes I wish I heard music every time the sun rises like in the movie City of Angels. It is said that there is power in a sunrise, and in a way I believe it...

    First Time I Remember

    I was about 18 or 19. I went out with a couple of my girlfriends. We met some guys and hung out with them most of the night. We've been drinking, of course, and driving around until we ended up out in the boonies. We sat around this guys truck and just drank beer and talked...

    Sadly I watch it tries nearly everyday at work,

    I start at 430 if we are busy. Get a break every two hours and windows facing east so the first light comes through the big windows. Sometimes you can even see beauty in a factory. It really is quite stunning to watch that first light rise up,really lifts me up.

    From Dusk To Dawn

    A few weeks ago, I stayed up all night just thinking. I couldn't fall asleep no matter how hard I tried. Finally I just pulled out a book about the romantic Nantucket, and read about Romances and lovely beaches, and the magical air. Since I've never been to Nantucket, it all...

    East Coast

    I got my BS from a university near the beach on the east coast.  I'm not the type to stay up all night, so I made a point to go watch the sun rise over the ocean before I graduated.  A group of us got up super early one december morning & watched the sun come up...

    In Wyoming

    When I went to Yellowstone, we would travel very early in the morning to see as much as we could. Seeing the sun rise and set behind the mountains is so beautiful<3

    And It Was So Beautiful

    We were on a ferry from Dover to Calais. It was in the summer, so we were out on deck. The air was fresh and brisk, and smelled of salt. It felt alive. And about halfway across La Manche, the sun broke over the crest of the horizon, spilling blindingly over the sea. It was like...

    Road Trips

    Back when my family still took road trips, we'd leave early in the morning while it was still dark. I usually couldn't fall back asleep in the car, so I'd sit in the back seat and watch the sunrise out the window.

    The first minute glimmer of light appearing on

    the horizon. So small that you think perhaps it is your imagination. But as large as a millions candles. Blooming into an ocean of roses strewn across the sky. Reflecting the hope for the new day.
