Transit of Venus
To whom a thousand temples rise,
Gaily false in gentle smiles,
Full of love-perplexing wiles" - Sappho
After some hunting I found my old eclipse shades from 2000 and we headed to Sully Park to watch the transit of Venus.
We were blessed with a quick glimpse before a blanket of clouds covered her. I snapped a quick photo through a local astronomer's scope...
What I love about it is the reflection in the sun - my hands and a person seated in the grass. The words of Ram Dass echoed in my mind...
"We're here to awaken
from the illusion of separateness”
