Moonshadow

"Language exerts hidden power, like a moon on the tides."
~Rita Mae Brown

My life doesn't offer many natural wonders other than an occasional puddle for a kindergartener to jump, but on Saturday night, I accidentally observed the lunar eclipse.

I was waiting at the train station where I would be meeting Tim. He had gone into the city for a Villanova basketball game with a friend. I had spent the day doing a little of this and that.

As I waited for Tim, I remembered that the eclipse was happening. I looked into the sky and saw about half of the moon. The moon got smaller and smaller. Tim arrived just in time to see it disappear completely. I didn't see a reddening of the moon, but I was impressed with nature all the same.
