January 5, 2011
The dog woke me up so early, I nearly cried from the effort of dragging myself back to consciousness. I felt dizzy as I crawled out of bed and yanked on my clothes. I kept stumbling into walls.

But outside, in the frigid air, with the sun just beginning to rise, I was glad I was awake. The pink sky was unbearably pretty. A new life. Every sunrise in Arizona is like the sun giving new life to the earth. I wondered in Texas would be the same.

No. No, not the same. But beautiful. But wonderful. New and magical.
