I challenge you to watch1 more sunrises in 2021 than you did in 2020.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, -32º windchills, freezing rain, and downpours. Because even when the sun isn’t visible, the sun still rises.
As Year of the Sunrise came to an end, I concluded if there was one takeaway for others, it was to encourage them to watch more sunrises this year than 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 by documenting another 366 sunrises. To date I have documented 731 consecutive sunrises.
Now, I present you with a challenge, to watch more sunrises in 2021 than they did in 2020.
There are sunrises remaining in 2021. Which means so long as you watched1 fewer than sunrises in 2020, 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.
Grab a sticker! Let it be a reminder that no matter how gray the day, or how blue your spirits, the sun still rises.
