My cheeks are chilled, I’m half-blinded, and more than a little moon-mad (no more than usual, anyway!), but I managed to stay outside and watch some of the lunar eclipse tonight.
Bundled up on my back porch, the light dusting of snow from our earlier non-weather event making everything, well, twinkle – it was almost ridiculously pretty in the pulsating moonlight. Even in the middle of the city, off the alley, all was quiet and still for the cosmic dance.
Even the rats seemed to stop their rustling around and watch. I hope you did too.
