General Invitation-- Please pass this along to anyone you think might enjoy doing this. 1- Pick a month and curate an event (public or private). Pick one day during your chosen month and plan an event for a group observation and performance to accompany either the sunrise and/or sunset. It does not need to be limited to the ringing of bells. As long as the purpose of the event is to witness and/or celebrate and share as a group the beginning or ending of a new day, anything goes. OR 2- Add a sunrise/ sunset observance to the beginning or end of an event or series of events that you are already involved with. The sun sets around 8:00 PM in the late Spring and early Fall. Logistically, it wouldn’t be difficult to include an invitation to participate in a performance of the dailybell. I would be happy to provide information about the project, a cheap source of bells to have on hand and anything other support you would like. OR 3- Research and report on an existing tradition- Find an existing tradition of sunrise and/or sunset observation in your area (geographical or area of interest) and approach them or report on their activity. Perhaps you could organize a tandem event or even join the group in their (celebration). Many religions mark the times of day through group performance and/or prayer. And as you well know, the Solstices and Equinoxes are favorite times for people to engage in (some kind of observation). AND No matter what you decide to do, please be willing to document and share your event in some way-

Last sunset of 2016 in Alpine, TX. 6:04 PM - from Alyce Santoro I was outside capturing the sun setting - with bell, of course! - on the last day of 2016! I can't tell you how many times I THOUGHT of ringing the bell at sunrise or sunset, or didn't get satisfactory documentation!! It was my MISSION not to let 2016 slip by without a single documented ringing...alas, I am without good wi-if at the moment and uploading the evidence will have to wait until tomorrow!

I used to post sunset pix from my back deck, but our current abode doesn't have the views. This is from my bus stop on Main Street. Not bad for the shortest day of the year ☺️ — at Lincoln Place. posted by Joe Pokrifka
