April 15: Thoughts for the Day

When nature offers opportunities to see spectacular events, like the blood moon I missed early this morning, there’s a deep sense of disappointment in failing to do what it takes to take advantage of the opportunity. It’s worth being jolted awake at ungodly hours; it’s worth setting the alarm.  Next time, I won’t be so cavalier about it.

    I was cavalier as well. I caught a part of a news brief on TV that the eclipse would be visible at 2:30. I made quick plans to think about rising early, but later found that the brief was referring to THAT MORNING, and not the next day’s.

    I missed it by a day! Might just as well have missed the moon at one million miles, then crash into the sun!

    I consoled myself with the thought that it was still there, whether I saw it or not.

    “Does a tree fall in the woods if”… bullshit….Ha!

I wish you would tell me what you think about this post...
