Re: What Are You Doing For The Solar Eclipse?

The weather's holding. Right now the sun's about half "gone." Starting to get weird.

Put your faith in God; he won't expect you.
Put your faith in death, because it's free.
If you believe in nothing, honey, it believes in you.

Re: What Are You Doing For The Solar Eclipse?

Here's a live stream https://www.timeanddate.com/live/

It's too bad I can't see a total eclipse.

"So in the end it remains advisable to accept whatever comes, to behave like an inert mass even if one feels oneself being swept away, not to be lured into a single unneccesary step, to regard others with the gaze of an animal, to feel no remorse, in short to crush with one's own hand any ghost of life that subsists, that is, to intensify the final quiet of the grave still further and let nothing beyond that endure." ---Franz Kafka, Resolutions

Just saw the total eclipse for 2 1/2 minutes. Amazing.

Re: What Are You Doing For The Solar Eclipse?

Heavy cloud cover here. There was some brightness behind the clouds, but it was hard to tell precisely where the sun was. It got dark enough that streetlights came on, and cicadas started singing loudly. It was eerie, especially during the darkest minutes, but I wasn't able to see the actual eclipse.

Re: What Are You Doing For The Solar Eclipse?

I regard it as a dress rehearsal for how the world ends. Not a bad thing, kind of the cool Weird.

But, you know, the human race would never be that lucky.

Re: What Are You Doing For The Solar Eclipse?

From the Caribbean I can only see a partial solar eclipse, but I set out to see it with my dog and three cats who could care less, but they keep me company.And so a day after HPL's birthday and the passing of Brian Aldiss-RIP, this celestial event helps us to forget the Kali Yuga we live in for a while.By the way, Twin Peaks keeps rolling along and sadly the log lady has passed away for real.

You bring perspective and sadness, Marioneta.

Re: What Are You Doing For The Solar Eclipse?

Marionata, I've noticed my own cats indifference to the eclipse. Only Roosters and some insects seem to be greatly affected.
