Is the sunrise worth getting up so early for?
The sunrises at the Grand Canyon are almost indescribable. There is a peace this settles into the canyon during the night. A time for her to rest. A time to enjoy the cooler air. A time for quiet. The quest for food between predator and prey continues but at a more subdued pace. Then, as the veil of night starts to rise in the canyon, she slowly flutters her eyes open to a new day, and a renewal occurs. Everything is clean and fresh. Now there is a yesterday. But the new day remembers nothing from yesterday. It is a “do-over” time. No mistakes, oversights, or misgivings are part of the new day. It is a time to begin again. On the western horizon a horizontal line crosses over the canyon….it is where night meets day. The canyon is a strong, hard lady and a tough task master. But she enfolds each day with renewal, beauty and hope.
