I did not watch the total eclipse
I did not watch it in my house
I did not watch it with a mouse
I did not watch it in my car
I did not watch it at the bar
I did not watch it on a train
I did not watch it in the rain
I did not watch it in a box
I did not watch it with a fox
I did not watch it here or there
I did not watch it anywhere

In shadows deep, I chose to stay, While others gazed at skies so gray. The moon embraced the sun's bright light, But I remained in earthly sight.

The stars above, they whispered low, Of wonders seen, of sights aglow. Yet I, on ground, refused to stray, Unmoved by night's celestial play.

For in my heart, a quiet peace, A choice to watch, or to release. No need for eyes to drink it in, When soul and spirit dwell within.

So while the world stood still, transfixed, I found my joy in moments mixed. For not to watch the eclipse, you see, Was simply to be wholly me.

In person, had to take advantage of the opportunity.  Drove about 10 miles to get inside the totality zone.  Was there about 30 minutes early for a little over a minute of full eclipse.

Cicadas are coming! Cicadas are coming!

Saw it in person, from my front yard.  We were at about 93%, which was surprisingly unremarkable, but when viewed with those crazy dark glasses, was indeed something to look at. 

My daughter, who lives nearby, sent me this photo of the eclipse at about 75% filtering many tiny little eclipses onto her patio through her wicker table in her backyard.  I thought it was more interesting than anything in the sky.

We are in Southern California so it was unspectacular.  Fortunately we were able to watch CNN from 9:45AM PST and followed the Total Eclipse of the Sun from Mexico as it progressed across the country in several cities culminating in Maine.  It was something to behold.  I enjoyed the peoples response almost a much as the Eclipse.
