At night the sun’s rays are blocked. Yes. The sun not directly felt, but warmth there all the same. But the darkness of night does invoke a kind of separation from the light. But the light is still there. Certain things best done at night, sleep, rest, regeneration. Waking in the morning can be a bit jarring, readjustment to the light.
But rising early and watching the sky slowly light up refreshes the spirit – a long stretch and yawn – revitalizing one to take on the day. Or maybe not quite that, but rather a joining with the morning sky, settled, at peace, content, grounded.
