A Thousand Sunrises | Pure Michigan
Bugsy Sailor has watched every consecutive sunrise for nearly five years.

Inspired by Lake Superior and the landscape of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Bugsy started watching the sunrise each morning as a way to find purpose in life. Years later, his sunrise project has evolved into something with a whole new meaning.

In "A Thousand Sunrises", Bugsy shares the joys and challenges of his sunrise project, and sheds light on the lessons he's learned from watching sunrise every single day.

Learn more about Bugsy's sunrise project at www.yearofthesunrise.com.
