Yesterday, Aaron, Mary Jane, and I traveled to Blue Sky Vineyard, to watch the first total eclipse, since 1918.
I had some trepidation that we might not be able to drive there, due to so many people coming to our area and the fact that Blue Sky had the distinct honor of being the home of the longest Eclipse Totality…in the Nation.
We were so happy to drive to the Vineyard with no delays and park, in the ample fields surrounding the establishment and walk into the main building…where a kind gentleman offered us his table.
I would estimate that there was in excess of a thousand people spread throughout the beautiful grounds and buildings.
I began watching the sun about an hour and twenty minutes prior to Totality.
The majesty of being witness to, what for many will be a lifetime event, and being surrounded by people from all over the world…was inspiring!
Many cheered at the awesome beauty of the Eclipse Totality. Many wept. There was a profound feeling of unity…and love…and being a member of the miraculous human family…in God’s Creation…that is so much larger than we are!
