My dear friend called. She said, “We drove to Idaho for the eclipse. We camped. It was the most amazing thing. A black hole in the sky in the middle of the day. We saw the stars, the weird light, it was beautiful, the most incredible experience of my life. I cried and cried.” I stopped and thought about that day. I was not in the direct line of the event. I cooked food and drove a car for repair. I kind of looked up when the light on the trees got eerie and strange. I didn’t pay attention, I was occupied with things. Then my friend told me that it was glorious, even holy. I thought how often I miss things because I’m not paying attention. To see the stars in the daytime. To notice I am on a planet in space. Now. Today. Miracles all around me. Holy holy holy.

Kim lives in Maine, which is lovely, and where she continues her enthusiastic relationship with Art, Music, Nature, Books, Animals, Humor and Trees.
