By the time you read this I will be on the road up the side of Mount Haleakala, the tallest peak on the Hawaiian island of Maui. I am ascending the dormant volcano, doubtless with dozens of other people, seeking one of the most beautiful sunrises on planet Earth.
I have been fortunate enough to experience it once before. But today is rather special. It's my 57th birthday, and I can think of no better way to start my day and year off than with a trip to the summit.
It's a spiritual and cleansing thing I need to do after a couple of rough years. Today we are renewed.
Hoping for clear weather.
