The First Light

In Japan it’s tradition to go out early on New Years Day
and to watch the first sunrise of the year.
We call it Hatsuhinode.
(pronounced “Hah-tsu-hee-no-deh”)
Sunrise in Ehime was 7:14am.
It’s always a pain waking up early on New Years Day
after being up so late the night before.
But last year for the first time
I woke up in time to see the sun rise.
And it felt great.
So I did it this year, too.
Basking in the rays of the first sunrise feels great.
And I am super energized for the new year!
I think this is going to be a tradition.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
