#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream
As I sit down to post my photos from this morning's walk and write this blog from my home, in the same Massachusetts town I grew up in, out my window I notice the sky darkening over our meadow and the tall grass standing still. The sun is being eclipsed by the moon.
In the dusky light of this afternoon, I seem to be remembering a total eclipse experience from some time in my childhood. [I looked it up - June 20, 1963, I was four.] And with it, a vague and growing sense of gloom - and my mother warning us - whatever you do, do not to look at the sun it will make you go blind.
I'm sure I wondered, how do you avoid looking at the sun when you're realizing, for the very first time – in real time – under an untrustworthy afternoon sky – it's the Sun - not your mother! - who is the most powerful and necessary force in your life?
