06:14 01/05/2015 Cold wind blows pierced through my skin walking at the long beach line of Pattaya. Suddenly, some kind of ethereal force stops me. I lost restraint and stood still. I took a deep breath, close my eyes and sniff the saline filled the air. I felt a different vibe of energy, a kind of celestial presence. I clasped my hand and uttered on my head Sawadee. It might be the presence of Thai god manifested. I continued my rambling then I pause when some mutts pursued my lead. I looked back and greet them with a dominance smile. They look at me in the eye shyly and retreat.
Everything was in place according to my plan. But then I realized one thing. I’m not going to experience that moment. My subconscious tells me “cherish that moment” Who would care if I ain’t got that perfect sunrise shot? I went forward and never turn back. I face the shore like any worshiper waiting for his master.
I sat down on the fine sand, waiting for the spectacular daybreak unfolded at Sunrise Beach, Koh Lipe. I seized and revere each second as if it’s my last moment. Once again Sol rose from the horizon and blazed the earth. I feel the warmth, see the blinding light, smell the brine, hear the squawking of birds and taste life.
I will never get tired waking up early, sit down and witness a daybreak. Sunrise gives us brand new day to learn, live and to love.
