I take a weird kind of pride thinking that while most people were looking up to the eclipse, I was looking at the ground.
Lacking the fancy glasses or a pinhole box/”camera”, there wasn’t much to see here in Seattle. Which is weird if you think about it. I mean we were at something like 92% totality and yet apart from an eerie diminishing of light, it was essentially a Monday. At least, if you didn’t look down. All those tree leaves served as pinholes, all those shadows dopplering at the edges.
I may have looked out of place but damn me if this wasn’t cool!
