A New Day

I'm not a morning person. Actually, I can probably count the number of sunrises I've witnessed on one hand. I believe all two of them were out the window of a plane, but I would've been under the influence of some heavy duty relaxants at the time, so I may just have been seeing things.
While I can't say the thought of rising at the crack of dawn gives me warm fuzzies, I love the idea, the theme of a sunrise.
The vision the word brings to mind for me is that of a yellow glow off in the distance, just cresting the top of pine-covered hills, stretching out long golden arms to embrace the morning. Shards of light slowly make their way across the still lake, and the world begins to wake.
That's kind of where I am in life right now. Just waking up.
Most of you probably don't even know me as a contributor on this blog, even though my name is right there on the sidebar. For reasons beyond my control, I've had to step back from a lot of things this past year. And now I'm back, if the wonderful writers here will still have me.
I see we have a lot more followers now, and I'm looking forward to meeting you all.
If you feel like taking a moment to introduce yourself in the comments, that would be awesome. Did you go to the ACFW conference this year? Tell me about it! I had to miss out and that makes me sad, but I'm already looking forward to next year.
It's great to be back!

I am a morning person, only if the sun is out. Otherwise, what I am doing is just looking at TV waiting for the rain to stop, ya know?

I'm most definitely *not* a morning person either! But I agree with you that the "theme" of sunrise is overwhelmingly amazing. I actually ended up using it as the central motif in my medieval novel Behold the Dawn, to celebrate the joyous possibilities of forgiveness and renewal in each new day.
