On Monday, August 21st 2017, our family had a little solar eclipse party. But, first I spent a little time creating the eclipse art below by using the computer to merge two of my original collages.
We had read online about some fun, silly things to do during the eclipse, bought some paper viewing glasses and got our mason jars of water ready to get infused with eclipse light. My husband turned on a Dark Star compilation by Grateful Dead and drank Moon Man beer. We watched the eclipse and talked about our goals for the year. I’m so grateful to have this fun family and for all we have created! Happy Eclipse Day, USA!
Here is another version of the eclipse sans butterflies:
Did anyone else see this through their eclipse glasses? No? Hmmm… 😉
