I took this photo over I-70 from my hotel room in Salina, Kansas. Several days later, I was adding keywords and titles and couldn’t immediately remember whether it was a sunrise or a sunset. I had to open the thumbnail to see the full image and pause to remember which direction I was facing.
This is a sunrise.
Someone who was familiar with Salina would be able to pretty easily determine whether this was the beginning or end of the day — whether it was dusk or dawn.
At times in our life, it can be difficult to determine whether a given event, happening or series of encounters represents a sunrise or sunset — the beginning or end of something.
Significant events in our life tend to be both endings and beginnings.
