The loveliest time of day

I think sunsets get romanticized a lot…

but often times, sunrises are just as, if not more, spectacular:

Why isn’t a bigger deal made of them?

To me, sunrises signify a chance to make a fresh start, to carpe the heck out of that diem. They embody youth, and hope, and optimism.

Sunset signals a winding down, a time to assess all the things I’d accomplished and all the rest that I failed to do. It’s more of a bittersweet time of day. And given that I’m often in a sad, nostalgic mood these days, I prefer sunrises and the joy of a clean slate to write my day on.

What about you?
