Sunrise is the instant at which the upper edge of the Sun appears above the horizon. Sunrise & sunset are, from one point of view, optical illusions. Objects appear higher in the sky than they are in reality.
Sunrise reminds us of our ephemeral life. What we decide to do with each precious capsule of time is of our own choosing. Let it not be said at the end of our day that our perceived value on earth was an optical illusion and our worth appeared to be higher than it was in reality.

SUNRISE - January 4, 2011
For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way. Something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. ~Alfred D'Souz
If a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, when, where and how does the journey to one's ultimate realization of the meaning of their life begin?

It is said that we are all born knowing the truth of everything. We then spend our lives wandering, denying the truth we already know, trying to find a more convenient truth. If we are fortunate, we grasp the idiocy of this path before we die and regain that which was always ours.
"Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have 24 hour days."- Zig Ziglar
