I realized this morning that I've never actually seen a sunrise before. I mean, I've looked at the morning sun, low in the sky, and said, "That's pretty" but that's not the same. This morning I sat on the sea defences on Bridlington North Beach and watched it all the way through from a pink sky with wisps of cirrus clouds to the first gleam of the sun above the sea, to half the sun to the whole disk. It was only then that I realized that I'd never watched this before. It made feel, suddenly, terribly old.
