wow. the eclipse was so worth getting up for. there was such a lovely stillness when the moon reached totality, a stillness i have not felt in years and had forgotten was possible.
of course at this point, my mind was racing with various metaphors to assimilate these images and the cornucopia of emotions i was experiencing, and i would elaborate further, but i really need to get ready for work now.
i will say, at full totality, i thought of the latin words:
"et lux in tenebris lucet"
(and the light shineth in the darkness)
what a lovely day this will be.
