Sun Crescents

We didn’t have a full eclipse here, but it was spectacular enough!  Almost as fun to look down as up.  Hundreds of curved shadows on the pavement.

And where we live in the mountains, it’s now raining.  I watched yellow leaves falling in the rain. . .like sunflakes after the eclipse.

My thought of the day:  If Nature could arrange these national or worldwide events once a month, maybe we would have something other than politics, religion and the internet to steal our attention.  Nature can bring people together in surprising ways.

Then again, Nature DOES amazing things every day. . .and we don’t notice.  What if we did. . .if we paused all our busyness and nonsense, and stood together to watch and wonder?

  1. Thank you, Chris! We loved the pavement crescents too. And seeing Jupiter peeking out in the afternoon! Yes, I regularly think of Emerson’s observation:
    “If the stars should appear one night in a thousand years, how would men believe and adore; and preserve for many generations the remembrance…. But every night come out these envoys of beauty, and light the universe with their admonishing smile” Write on!
