Sunrise over Boulder brings motivation with it as the sun rises. Its morning glow proceeds its actual ascension over the horizon. Its light is a harbinger of the excitement and glow of the week to come. Whether we take the time to notice it or not, it rises. It brings its promise of progress along for the ride without fail. Our role in the process is easy. We merely need to look!



Imagine a Dutch Master portrait on the wall. As light comes streaming through the window, the glory of the brushstrokes take on a life of their own. Our role is to open our eyes to see what is there. It is there whether or not we take the tiny step of looking. The greatest of paintings begin with a single brush and a single brush stroke. All that lies between us and the creation of the artwork is a single dab of paint.
