OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aids, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn, which does not forsake us in our soundest sleep.

             -Thoreau, Walden

There is literally no part of that quote that I agree with. However, it stuck in my head and I think of it every single time I see the sunrise. Thus it occurred to me when I woke up at 6am and took some pictures of the sun rising over the frozen lake.
