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.

"People are like stained - glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within." - Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
'Tis 5:20 pm. In about one hour, my guitar and I will be signing up for open-mike night at a local pizza parlor. My alternate universe desire to play in a rock band will take center stage. More curious than nervous, I am as prepared as I can be, considering I just picked this bass up six months ago and I can't read music. Probably as good a litmus test for advancing Alzheimer's onset as any. I have memorized my part and and as of 30 minutes ago, I could still remember what to play.
