ECLIPSE!!...When Darkness Falls


So there we were outside on the compound at work, anticipating the solar eclipse that would engulf the country to make it comprehensively dark. Sporting the special eclipse shades, which many believed not to be that special, most of us wanted to witness the phenomenal experience of seeing outside get dark between 8.30 anad 9.30am in the morning...

As the time of the eclipse grew closer and closer, jubilation was written over ALL our faces. THIS is what living is all about, no? After all, the statistics indicate that few people (around 1/10) ever get to witness an eclipse. So to have witnessed an eclipse a second time (the first being in Belgium in the late nineties--11 August, 1999) is a blessing of epic proportions;-)

To be frank, I was not all that elated, and that surprised me. I was over-joyed, and definitely not underwhelmed. I didn't need this eclipse to remind of the greatness of God, but it has definitely re-inforced my belief that there is a God...

Cool! We saw it here too, around noon. I got around 85% coverage, I think Sissy beat me by a lot.

But I didnt have the (not so?) special glasses, so the tears that ran down my cheeks when I tried to look at it for a split second had nothing to do with emotions, elation or religious experences.

Is that you in the pics? What are you holding there in your hand? Looks like cigarettes, but you don't smoke, do you?

that is me in the blue short-sleeved shirt. No, I don't smoke; I was trying to capture a commentary (audio journal) for posterity. It worked!! So, I have all the screams and whatnot captured for my future kids, too:-))

did the earth move for you?;-))
