Sunrise or sunset?
Definitely sunsets are my favorite, by a huge amount. Firstly, I am not a morning person. Never have been. My father was a morning person, he started work very early in the morning when I was small. It was not a good time of day for me, I was always tired out, so tried to sleep in as much as I could. This tendency continued into my adulthood
Secondly, I love all the colors in a sunset compared to the clear bright light in the sunrise. The light sensitivity I had for years may have contributed to my aversion to sunrises. Going gluten free helped eliminate the light sensitivity, but I still prefer early evenings to early mornings.
I’ve worked the day shift many, many years, but it was never something I liked to do. In fact, I’ve often done all three shifts. One of my favorite jobs was inside a building without windows for a few years and that was hard, but at least I only did that job during the day, so I was able to see sunsets during that time period as well.
One job I did for a few years while in college had me doing day and evening shifts. My favorite times were doing the evening shift and being able to see the sunset and the beauty that resulted right from the front counter at the video store. There were five huge windows facing directly west. One of my siblings still lives in that area and I still get to see some great sunsets in that neighborhood.
Where I live in downtown is great for that as well. When I take my bike out in the evening, I see some great sunsets, as I drive towards the west. It’s just magic.
