This is the sister book to The Sun is Rising, and the inspiration for that book is below. Each day the sun rises and we get a new beginning, and each day the sun sets, offering a fresh start the next day. Sometimes in our lives we celebrate the new beginnings and sometimes we celebrate the endings and chapters closing in our lives.
“The Sun is Rising” by Bookartist Kendra Last
Inspiration for this book came from this song, The Sun is Rising by Britt Nicole. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LO36F--Vn1g
I believe that there is so much promise in a new day. Each and every day the sun rises again, no matter the hurt we feel, trauma, betrayal or tragedy in our lives. Every day we get a fresh clean start. And I believe you should write about it every day. And so I created this book to write about your new days.
The book features nice light wood for the cover. The sun rays, featuring The Togetherness Project’s logo as the middle three rays, are made out of three different woods. Each day is different. Each sun rise is different. Each woman who comes to The Togetherness Project is different. But we are all beautiful, and together we make something magnificent. The middle three rays are made of Purple Heart wood. It is ranked as one of the hardest woods in the world. It is strong, just like the women of Togetherness. When growing, these trees are a light brown color, but only when cut down does it quickly change from brown to this beautiful purple. For many of us, our lives seemed pretty good and nice. We were growing. Then one day we were cut down. It hurt. But we quickly changed from our former selves into something even better. Had we not been cut down we would never know how truly beautiful we could become. The other rays on the cover are made from 2 other woods because we all come from different backgrounds, but all rise together. This book is bound with a Coptic Stitch, an Exposed Spine binding. We are bound together and form close friendships as we become exposed and vulnerable like these stitches. Each signature is wrapped in paper the colors of a sunrise to symbolize the rising of the sun, and the rising of our new lives that have begun.
