Chapter 5, Page 12, Book 16



The bright enamoured Sunshine goes a-Maying,
   And every flower his laughing eye beguiles;
And on the milk maid’s rosy face a-playing,
   Pays court to Beauty in its softest smiles.
For May’s divinity of Joy begun,
   Adds life and lustre to the golden sun;
And all of life, beneath its glory straying,
   Is by May’s beauty into worship won;­
Till golden Eve ennobles all the west,
And Day goes blushing like a bride to rest.

John Clare 


May 12th - Watch the Sun Rise

I love early mornings when it feels like the rest of the world is still fast asleep and you're the only one who's awake and everything feels like it isn't really real and you kind of forget about all your problems because for now it's just you, the world and the sunrise.

The rising of the sun happens 365 days a year. But how often do we make a point of seeing it? Watching the sun rise is actually an ancient method of healing. And there are numerous other benefits, like enjoying a beautiful show of color and light, and having quiet moments of stillness and reflection.


Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead. 

Louisa May Alcott

There is a moment each day when the rising sun peeks over the horizon. The sky transforms from gradients of cobalt blue to russet orange. Every dawning of a new day reminds me of the infinite possibilities in my life. The rising sun brings the joy of a new day.  It gives a renewal, a spark of enthusiasm, and zest for life


Opportunities are like sunrises, if you wait too long you will miss them

Remember: Just as the warmth of sunlight opens flowers, the warmth of positivity opens our minds and hearts.

Sunrises spark hope. I love to see them too. "Opportunities are like sunrises, if you wait too long you will miss them."

I always enjoy watching the sun come up if I have the opportunity to do so. I like how its not there but suddenly it is there bringing its warmth and light to a new day.
