Life is meaningful, only when one wishes to make it. We are creatures of time and we’ll wither away in it. The little moments of joy we find and create are all that will live with us.

Solar Eclipse Excursion

On August 1, 2008, a total solar eclipse will cut a swath of shadow through Greenland, the Arctic, Russia, Mongolia, and China. And like most other solar eclipses, thousands of people will come from all over the world to witness it, traveling to remote locations just to stand in the dark for three minutes.

The corona itself is a big freakish thing — a feathery halo of streaming particles along magnetic field lines, which look not like nice summer orange rays but kill-you-dead radiation. It’s also so big and far away as to bend one’s sense of scale. At least three planets are usually visible, and this August there will be four: Mercury, Venus, Saturn, and Mars. The sight of the Sun and grouping of planets can overtake you. The absence of the blinding photosphere provides depth perception, with the corona serving as a reference point relative to the planets in front of and beyond the Sun. It allows you to see the big mechanical picture, like a life-sized version of the classroom model minus a few parts. With some mental effort, it’s possible to actually grasp a sense of the size of the solar system. It can crack your brain a bit.

“REFUGE”

Written: 31 August 1996

GOD's WondersWhen the World is going round and round
Peace settles upon the ground
I feel safe – secure with all the love I can find – a life with pleasure all around.

I see the World with a different view… like a mantel that hangs above on the ceiling of move
The motion that settles my heart – peace… a lot!
I feel protected – happy – like a person with a lot of flare.
The light I find above my eyes I cannot catch it but it seems to be there

I do not move when I feel all this… I just know.
I cannot figure it out what it’s all about – I cannot say what this all says but I know that it’s there for me
For my being… for my play!

I think that I just have to live with all this and seek protection from all that’s BAD and HUGE…
Yet I know at the same time that GOD is there for my REFUGE
