Solar eclipse Sunday here in California. It was a partial one, but as the quality of the light began changing in the late afternoon, we took a break from the planting and fencing and other spring doings to watch the shadow coming through the little dot in a piece of paper. From a crescent to a full circle inside a circle and back to a crescent. It felt bigger, more awesome, than I had anticipated. And then as we were sitting back from our intent focus on that little shadow, one of the kids with us pointed to all the little crescents being made by the pine tree. We were surrounded by eclipse shadows! The pictures don’t do justice to the moment, but it was a great reminder to look at the broader view in everything.
One other natural wonder that came in a bag of carrots my husband purchased last week:
The spring plantings are almost all in. More time for blogging next week!
