Watch More Sunrises

I challenge you to watch1 more sunrises in 2023 than you did in 2022.

Yes, I'll take the Sunrise Pledge

The Unabridged Edition

In 2019, I photographed every sunrise. Yes, every sunrise. Not only when the sun was visible, but through blizzards, fog, -30º windchills, freezing rain, and downpours. Because even when the sun isn’t visible, the sun still rises.

As Year of the Sunrise continues, one significant takeaway is encouraging others to watch more sunrises this year than they did the previous year. But I couldn’t ask that of others if I didn’t live up to it myself. It was serendipitous that Year of the Sunrise would be followed by a leap year, giving me the only possible opportunity to watch more sunrises than the previous year. So in 2020 I continued to document another 366 sunrises, and I still haven’t stopped. To date I have documented 900 consecutive sunrises.

Now, I present you with a challenge, to watch more sunrises in 2023 than they did in 2022.

There are sunrises remaining in 2023. Which means so long as you watched1 fewer than sunrises in 2022, you’ve still got time. You got this.

By doing so, I’m confident you’ll find more joy, balance, and beauty in your day.

Your friend,
Bugsy Sailor
