  3. January is the month for brave steps, especially outside, especially in the morning.

  4. Such a beautiful range of sky colours and love the wispy elements of the tree in contrast.

    • magicalmysticalteacher

      There are so many contrasts here in the desert that it’s impossible to count them all!

  9. Thats a very heavy colored sunrise in my eyes. Nice with the tree profile in front.

    • magicalmysticalteacher

      Somehow sunrises and trees just go together!

  12. may magnificence guide you!

  13. Are you okay? I’m grateful for this awesome skywatch post. 2016 greeted my husband and I with flu/cold bug. In touch with the being able to take one more step. We are feeling better now.

    • magicalmysticalteacher

      May you both recover quickly! I’ve had only one day of sniffles so far, and that was three weeks ago. I hope to get through the rest of the school year unscathed!

  14. Courage to take one more step… sometimes that is all we can do, and that in itself is a miracle to me… thank you dear MMT for this beauty in image and word…

  15. Courage is a trait all desert dwellers need.

    Sometime it comes by continuing to put one foot after another. 🙂

  17. Beautiful and truly inspiring!

  18. An awesome photo! Such a sunrise would give me courage, I think.

  19. That is a stunning image!

  20. that one step for me is the first one- stepping out of the warmth of my bed! gorgeous sky- love it as the backdrop of the gorgeously shaped tree
