SOLSC #10 - Early Riser

For the fourth year, I am participating in the SOLSC and guiding students from my classroom and my school on the same writing journey. Here is the link to our school blog and the 15-20 students who are participating in the Classroom Challenge.

Early Riser:

Tomorrow, the sun rises at 6:15am and I will see it from the road. I'm actually a night owl but I'm playing in a disc golf tournament in the morning and it's two hours away. So I'll be headed south from Denver along I-25, watching for the first hints of purple in the black sky. Clouds are in the forecast, but if I'm lucky, there will be a break in the east, allowing the suns rays to cast painted hues of pink, orange and red across the sky. Maybe it will be a classic Colorado sunrise, growing and glowing better and better until I realize it's gone. Maybe the clouds will be so dense it will just get lighter and lighter until I realize I don't need my headlights any more.

But I know that the sun will sleep in an extra hour on Sunday and I will curse the darkness and the time change Monday morning.

Here is a video of me hitting a sweet shot in a tournament four years ago. The previous shot had flown out of bounds but knocking in this shot from 100+ feet was a great feeling. Hoping for some more of that feeling tomorrow.
