Rollie and I took time to enjoy the eclipse. Yes, we did not look at the eclipse. Rollie quickly put together the pin-hole shoebox. It was fun to sit out in the meadow with our backs to the sun peering through the hole in the side of the box at the reflection coming through the pin-hole.
Last total eclipse I remember was when I was a child. My Mom fixed up the way to look indirectly at it back then with photograph negatives.
It’s so good to accept what nature gives us and just take it in – be there with it. Nature being gentle and ever so slow this time. Patience and contentment with the slow-down.
