it was a full moon so bright that my husband and i danced in our long shadows at the entrance to buffalo park. it was still hours away from the eclipse, but there was electricty in the air. we had come to be bathed in the light, then headed home.
i did not sit out on our balcony for the entire show, but instead slipped in and out quietly through the curtains of the sliding glass door to drink in bits at a time. i saw the shadow take a big bite out of the edge. and it kept eating.
as the moon became a deep copper disk, the brightening planets and stars beckoned for attention. but my eyes were drawn to the moon and mars. one neighbor was solemly lit by her candles, while another group of young girls were more raucous in their merrymaking and conversation. but we were all drawn because of the sheer beauty of the event. mars so close. the man in the moon becoming dark and mysterious. perhaps that was why all of our balconies were filled with females.
