New Year’s Day 2013 arrived, cold and promising. Dawn shooting – like life – is an uncertainty, an act of faith and always a surprise. The storms of 2012 are behind us, and light is always purest after a storm. May we face every dawn with clarity, and in this new year refresh our hopes, resolve our purposes, and remember to believe.
