Did You Watch the Eclipse?

by Maggie Sefton

I certainly did.  I tossed out my regular Monday routine yesterday and watched---and experienced---the Total Solar Eclipse as it passed over the Western United States.

Lacy leaf patterns suddenly appeared on my backyard patio. Never saw those before.  My backyard is surrounded by trees.    But the entire backyard was in full sunshine.

And, believe me when I said everything outside was in FULL sun and clear blue sky and yet----everything was strangely in subdued light.  All of the outside.  I've never seen anything like that in my life, either. It was fascinating.  The entire experience.
