Or maybe — just maybe — the dawn starts at dusk. When the circle of the earth promises the sun, though invisible for the time — will come back full.
Dawn begins in the dark.
We prefer a more clear definition.
Drawing a delineation in the sand to mark something new. This. This right here and now is the beginning. Day One. The starting line.
But I don’t think it works that way.
Because an action starts with an intent.
An intent with a question.
A question with a curiosity.
A curiosity with a whisper.
Whispers don’t announce themselves with the glory of a sunrise.
But they are the first breeze of a new season blowing in.
