waking up at the crack of dawn allows you to see the earth wake up. stepping outside of the house, i climbed up to the roof to witness one perfect sunrise back home in costa rica. a symphony of color begins to display itself against the sculptural clouds, the birds start to sing in celebration of the new day. the trees wave happily in the breeze, their deep silhouettes in absolute contrast to the changing color show behind. the day has finally arrived, i am flying home tonight.
