A First Line in Progress

I liked the sound of this opening line that drifted into my head while I was walking at sunrise this morning:

Every sunrise marks the beginning of the best day in someone's life... and the worst day in someone else's. People spend a lot of time dreaming of the former; they should really spend more time hoping to avoid the latter.

I'm still playing with it, but it intrigues me enough that I want to see what comes next...

That is a good line. And it was a beautiful sunrise this morning. I left my desk at work and went out to watch it, which is something I haven't done in a long time.
