If God really wanted us to enjoy sunrise, it would occur no later than 10:30 am.
–Quotable Quotes from a recent Reader’s Digest edition (can’t recollect the name of the person)
I am not sure if I’m looking at a luxury like that. But, for sure I have my own perceptions of the sunrise – and an effect on me as well.
For 25 months now, I have been continuously working night shifts. I did enjoy the sunrise during the period – dozens of times if not hundreds. Because when the sun rises, it’s time for me to go home and sleep happily. When that guy goes down again in the evening, it’s time for me to get ready for work!
For a change, I moved (rather was moved) to morning shift, working from 6 am till 3 pm. I still stand outside (very often) in the hallway/ staircase with a cup of coffee in hand to look at the rising sun. It definitely feels different.
The location hasn’t changed; the coffee isn’t different. But, waiting eagerly for the sun to rise so that I can go home and sleep is different from feeling afresh and getting ready for a pleasant work day!
