I got up at 3:00 a.m. today to look up into the heavens, and see the total eclipse of the moon.
It was a gorgeous and awesome sight. The created and evolved universe, as I experienced it in this eclipse, led me to awe.
My camera was inadequate to the task of photographing what I saw, but that did not matter.
For the enjoyment of a moment of beauty is important in and of itself, whether or not it can be encapsulated in a photo', a poem, a painting, a recording, a video, or a narrative.
By 3:15 a.m. I was back in bed, where I slept soundly until 5:15 a.m.
At 6:45 a.m. Penne and I took our early morning two mile walk. By 7:30 a.m. I was able to enjoy a mug of coffee out on my Lanai. There I enjoyed a more local beauty as I looked out on the pond. I will never tire of what I am privileged to see every day. I hope to be ever grateful for this "human-made" glory.
