This is one of my favorite photographs. I took it this summer (2017) while visiting a tiny island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. I like waking up early to see the light fill the sky. It reminds me that each day is a new beginning and another opportunity to start again. Another chance to chase my dreams, try once more, and make things better. I tend to watch the sun rise more frequently when I’m going through a hard time because seeing fire light up the sky reminds me that starting over is a beautiful thing. Even when it doesn’t feel like it.
