Maybe the eclipse changed me, but I do feel better. Viewing a solar eclipse in person was an amazing moment. It's a shame I didn't see it with a larger gathering of people, but a group of strangers witnessing the same rare celestial event in the middle of nowhere gave me some perspective. I am disappointed in myself that I spent more time looking through my camera than looking at it with my own eyes. I may have botched this viewing experience by looking at the wrong place, but at least the journey was worth it. I really really really wished I had just put the camera down and watched. No amount of quiet obsessing could prepare me for a moving moment in time. Maybe next time in 7 years. Remind me, April 8, 2024.
But in other news, there is no other news. At least this warranted something.
