"All humans realize they are loved when they witness the dawn: early morning is the triumph of good over evil. Absolved by light we decide to go on."
- rufus wainwright
I am not sure I agree with everything Mr. Wainwright said, but dawn is a special time. It is still, cold, and beautiful; it refreshes the soul.
The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. ... In them He has placed a tent for the sun, Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber; It rejoices as a strong man to run his course. Its rising is from one end of the heavens, And its circuit to the other end of them; And there is nothing hidden from its heat.
-Psalm 19:1, 4b-6
