I work out of a home office. My desk faces to the West. I have forgotten what I miss by not seeing the Sunrise. I had an early morning appointment Tuesday out of town. So I was on the road before dawn. It was difficult to drive because God began painting the clouds in the sky with the reflections of the sunbeams. I had to pull off to the side of the road and take a photo with my cell phone.
Then I remembered an old saying, "Red in the Morning, Sailor take Warning; Red at Night, Sailor's Delight". If I remember correctly, the saying has logic behind it. If you see a red sunset, the horizon looking to the West is clearing in other words: the storm is breaking up and will be gone by morning. You see, most storms move from West to East. If you see a red sunrise, it usually means that there are clouds over your head and the horizon while facing the East is beginning to cloud over. Those clouds could mean a storm that would cause you problems while sailing.
Most "old wives tales" have a beginning that makes sense.
I am an eclectic person. I’ve broken the mold for the stereotype of what an accountant is like (as an accountant with a very creative side). I LOVE to challenge what “always has been”. Let’s look at things and think about them. Is there a "better" out there that we have missed because “it’s always been this way”? “Live, Laugh and Love” is one of my mottos. There is so much beauty in life we just need to stop and appreciate it. “Dance like no one is watching!” because the music in your head doesn’t match what’s playing for anyone else. :^)
