Did you see it, did you see it…. I saw it. Nothing beats Mother Nature, the moon and the stars and all that man can not create but they sure can destroy.
I would have loved to experience the Totality thing. That would have been awesome, but I live off the beaten path of this eclipse. Maybe next time, I will travel to it. Assuming I’m still on earth, other than that I guess I watch it from above. LOL
My own thinking is it’s a sacred moment to be able to experience such a rare occasion. So I would not do the watching with the masses thing. I watched on TV as the masses ooohed and aahhed.
I found the noise level or just the noise distracting and interrupting of thoughts and prayers. Maybe its just me, I think of it as a blessing of nature so it should be held in reverence not so much a party atmosphere. I know party pooper huh. But thats me. I think if you are blessed with something so rare you should be absorb it with your quiet mind so when needed you can go back into yourself and remember that feeling of blessings.
I think with the masses thing, its me…. I THINK: traffic – both getting in and out; where’s the closes bathroom, is there a bathroom and why is it I attract the weirdest people (you know the people either next to you, behind you or in front of you; famiy included LOL). Perhaps its becasue I am easily distracted and I am a people watcher. How can I watch the sky and when there are a sea of humans surrounding me? I don’t want to have to listen to a bunch of peanut gallery conversations, opinions, thoughts, could be, should be, would be comments from strangers around me. Most of all when in super crowded masses: how do I get out of here in an emergency, where is my escape route to safety?
Be Blessed (\O/)
