When you live near the beach, you don't have to look far for inspiration. Even if you're not writing about the ocean, the therapeutic advantages of the sunrise are unmatched.
I forget this too often, but not today. Up at 5:00am. Took a shower, gathered camera gear and stepped out the door. The elevator was malfunctioning, so down the stairs, grabbed my neighbor to go with me and off we went.
The sunrise wasn't as dramatic as some I've seen and the waves on the ocean were not more than soft mounds, but the offerings of the environment -- the washing in and washing out of the swells, the glow of the sun making it's appearance... they all work toward renewal and inspiration.
You may not live near the ocean -- but the morning and any touch of nature can renew you too.
Have a great and creative day.
