Sunrise Sunset: 52 Weeks of Awe & Gratitude


The same vista. Never the same sun.

Much like life, the stage changes even when our vantage point doesn’t. And so it is with the rising and setting sun, no two are ever the same.

Every picture tells another color, shape and shadow story . . . whatever unfolds each day reveals the diversity and beauty of life. Birds, insects, reptiles, trees, sandy shores—all thrive under the majesty of the sun.

Weiss offers all of this as a show of gratitude, a tribute to the awe of each new day. Sunrise Sunset is replete with glorious photographs of different days and different suns captured from the very same vantage point. Kim Weiss she began documenting the awe and beauty of nature right from her 14th floor apartment building terrace.

The result: Sunrise, Sunset: 52 Weeks of Awe and Gratitude, a compact, gem of a gift book that brims with glorious color photographs. Each image reveals another hue, shape and shadow story; whatever unfolds each day is revealed in the uniqueness of the ever-changing landscape. Birds, insects, reptiles, trees, sandy shores—all thrive under the illustrious sun, documented in this moving book.

Each photograph in SUNRISE, SUNSET is accompanied by a reflective passage – an affirmation, poem, inspirational quote – from some of the best known and loved inspirational leaders of our time including, John Bradshaw, Candace Bushnell, Lisa Nichols, Jean Houston, Joan Borysenko, Jack Canfield, Marci Shimoff, Judith Orloff, M.J. Rose, Don Miguel Ruiz, Jr., Gloria Loring, Lisa McCourt, Roger Kamenetz, Arielle Ford, Joan Halifax, Marty Becker, DVM, Frank De Caro, and many more.
