Wacky Wednesday: Sunrise on a new day….

I saw this picture first thing on a Monday morning after an entire weekend of not writing. I was irritated with myself because, even though I wrote my Monday Musings over the weekend, I truly did intend to work on my novel, Killing Secrets, too. Life just got in the way. It reminded me the dawn each morning is a chance to pick up where I left off. A new day to strive for what I want.  I can’t do much about what has gone before…but I can begin again, move forward.  I’d love to have this picture blown up and hung over my desk to greet me each day.  Today I’m sharing that inspiration!

On Saturday, Aug. 27, 2011, International Space Station astronaut Ron Garan used a high definition camera to film one of the sixteen sunrises astronauts see each day. This image shows the rising sun as the station flew along a path between Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and Buenos Aires, Argentina.   Image Credit: NASA

  1. Beautiful picture Karen! Your post said it all. It’s hard when life gets in the way and delays you from doing something that deep inside of yourself you want to do. But a new day helps put things in perspective and give us all a new beginning to do all those things we couldn’t fit in the day before!

    Hope you are getting some writing done!

    Thanks, Christine. Blown up to the size of my largest screen, it’s overwhelmingly beautiful. I love the sunrise whenever I catch it. Sometimes we do get so bogged down in life that we forget that new beginnings are possible each and every day.

    I’m going to post my blog everywhere. Then, I’m heading for my writing nest to work on Killing Secrets until I have to pick up munchkin. So, yep, will write today!

    Hope you get some time in, too!

    You are an inspiration. I’ve allowed pain to stand between me and my writing. I need to look around me for those moments that will keep me on the path.

  4. Karen Docter says:

    Do look for those moments, Kathleen, because it’s all too easy to descend into complete inertia. It nearly broke down my writing for 3 years. However, you also have to give yourself a break. You can’t expect to jump back from surgery just like that. After one of my surgeries, I pushed and pushed and ended up hurting myself more.

    Everyone’s different. Find YOUR way back to writing. Until then, concentrate on healing and don’t beat yourself up.

    Maybe we’ll see you in December?
