"Sunrise is the time to feel that you will be able to find out how to help somebody close to you who you think needs help even if he doesn't think so. At sunrise everything is luminous but not clear."
A River Runs Through---Norman Maclean
This is a line spoken from the book A River Run Through by Norman Maclean. While Maclean relates that line to his love of fly fishing I relate that line to golf. Some of my best memories are and will always be riding with Tom Meeks and the times I would go with him very early of a morning to cut the holes for the US Open. When the sun was just rising and the course still belonged to nature, not man. You could hear the sounds of animals, maybe water rushing and realizing that in a few hours thousands of people would now occupy this quite lovely space.
I will agree that a sunrise can be luminous...... but it does not always give one all the answers to questions from the night before. Some questions linger long into the light of day.
Or even longer.
