Nothing too too exceptional to see here in Alaska this morning, but I did see some really cool posts of my cousins’ and uncles’ instagrams in Idaho! It looked pretty impressive that it was so dark/dusky outside there. I also so some pictures of cool crescent shaped shadows.
I put my sunglasses on and blinked at the sun and saw a nice partial eclipse. And then I took some pictures of me and my boy with a snotty nose, and who was naked in preparation for his post breakfast bath. After I sort of looked at the sun, every time I’d blink I’d see about 10 mini eclipses, so I’d call that a success! ;)
Then Apollo and I took a nap together in our chair, and that is always a big success to me, especially when I am not getting super awesome rest at night. Once Apollo fell asleep, I scrolled through Instagram and read about people’s experience with the solar eclipse. Some were pretty funny, like pictures of cloudy skies and “this is stupid. I can’t even see it.” And other posts where some laughed at the big hype this eclipse was making. And some who expected it to be midnight dark outside, but they weren’t in the right location, so that’s also funny.
And then I came across a couple posts where people shared of the powerful energies and celestial alignments of this solar eclipse. They said things like this can be a moment where we can step fully into our light, where we can purify our old selves and let go of what doesn’t serve us, a time of progressive change – even it if may be uncomfortable, and a portal for exponential growth.
So here’s to moving from darkness to light and three cheers for spectacular natural phenomenons.
