Yes, Bob and I did watch the lunar eclipse last week. I hadn’t planned on writing about it because I didn’t take a lot of photos, but changed my mind.
Our decision to watch was rather last minute. Bob had planned on following the coverage on NASA TV at http://www.nasa.gov. I had never seen an eclipse before so I went outside. Bob decided to stay outside to be with me and we had a lovely evening sitting in our lawn chairs in our yard talking, watching the sky, meditating and eating soup. A neighbor invited me across the street to see the view from her porch and look at her photos. We had a nice little visit. Others were watching from various locations in the park and we had something to talk about the next day.
Sometimes the big things in life aren’t about being perfect — the perfect location, the perfect photos. Sometimes it is all about the experience. Being in the moment and recognizing God in the event.
