This is my third week of commuting to Austin. It's still new to me, and when I leave early in the morning it makes the trip feel very transformational. It's probably because the new day, the new week, and the sunrise all point my thoughts toward the new and the different, and what is to come.
Tuesday morning, I snapped this photo somewhere near Falfurrias. I liked the image that I was seeing as the sun rose: the orange hues behind me contrasted with the blue hues in front, a necklace my daughter made that is special to me, the image of my bike in my rearview mirror, and the massive windshield crack. All of it together linked up with my feeling of transition and transformation.
