lunar eclipse : we love the moon!

Google Moon

The space race was an important influence in my youth. My family was glued to the news about astronauts, cosmonauts, and proposed missions. I can remember watching the landing on the moon. I love space, the cosmos, cosmology, and heavenly bodies.

Last night it was the last lunar eclipse until 2010. It was freezing cold. I luckily sat in my loft looking up at it through the skylight. I watched as the planet on which I reside placed itself between the sun and the moon. The shadow being cast to block our moon.

Too cool.

    Thich Nhat Hanh said that we see a half moon or a sliver of moon, but we know the moon is always whole. Similarly, there are times when we feel less or diminished, but we, like the moon, are always whole.

  • Thanks Lissa. Isn’t that the wonder we find in watching the eclipse? I now recognize that it is because I am joyful and sad at the same time.
