Why yes, as a matter of fact they *did* have a Delorean hovercraft at #globaleclipsegathering and yes, it was awesome and surprisingly loud, and no, they did not take it up to 76.4699 knots (the nautical equivalent of 88 mph)
What’s supposed to be in the middle? The foreground or the background? I really need to take a photography class. Maybe I’ll sign up for one when I get the iPhone X. It’s supposed to have a great camera. I think it might be the same as the iPhone 8 plus but the ergonomics are way off. And also the iPhone X has double glass sides. That means twice the chance of breaking. I’ve broke the screen on my iPhone 7 3 times in 4 months. No I don’t have a phone protector on phone because you know what? I live life on the edge. I see all these people saying that they want to pick up and move across the country to start a new life and new job but they haven’t even taken the first step to living on the edge by releasing their phone from its incarceration. No case on your phone is the equivalent of cutting an avocado seed out of an avocado in the palm of your hand, taking a poop with only 4 sheets of 1-ply toilet paper, dropping a nice juicy ribeye onto a searing hot oiled pan without wearing a shirt. Yup. Few people live their lives to the extreme and I feel like if you’ve read down this far you should think about making some changes in your life before the year is over because I know you haven’t accomplished your New Years resolution yet. Secret to accomplishing it? Don’t make one. Try it next year.

Exactly one month ago, I felt my heart expand with such intensity when I witnessed the total solar eclipse in Mitchell, Oregon. My grandpa died right before totality, and although I didn't officially receive this news until after this event, I felt such raw, deep appreciation for all of the relationships in my life - with loved ones, old friends, new friends, past present and future connections - while this spectacular, finite event unfolded before and within me. If you're reading this, know I love you || Mitchell, Oregon - August 21 2017
I find it interesting as millions gathered to watch the eclipse, the Navajos did not watch. They are one of the oldest tribes and they marked the solar eclipse as a sacred phenomenon, a sacred renewal. The sun and moon are powerful deities in Navajo culture. The sun controls and regulates the universe, while the moon controls and regulates the earth. "Just like you don't watch other humans or animals being intimate with each other, you don't watch the sun and moon during the renewal," Keeswood said. "You stay inside, you sit still, you don't run around." They stayed inside, prayed, mediated, fasted, and did not sleep during the renewal process as the animals and birds also did the same they found a cozy space..went quiet and also sat still and did not watch.....#perspective#sacredrenewal#eclipse2017#eclipse#nature#instinct
A throwback to August 21st and the solar eclipse in North America.
My sons & I went on spontaneous trip to the southern USA to experience totality.
We didn't know where we'd be that day but decided on Clarksville, Tennessee and found a great spot by the Red River.
This is the light about 30 minutes before totality. The birds flocked and the cicadas sang. It went to darkness and planets you don't normally see, were seen. Hard to describe the feeling but I was in awe. #shotoniphone#andreareesphoto
DAY 21 of the #TRseptfallchallenge : End of the second path. Who am I ready to accept or forgive? (PIC 1) + The New Moon in Virgo "Divine Feminine" spread from @gypsyarts (PIC 2)
PIC 1: Who am I ready to accept or forgive? THE EMPRESS. This is both me AND my mother AND everyone from whom I have expected some sort of nurturing behavior. This is a big topic for me -- the idea of what makes a "good mother." I drew some oracle cards to help me explore this idea and got a lot of messages about balance and love. The balance here is about how to meet everyone's needs in a family while keeping the whole group in a harmonious state. My heart tells me to trust that everyone has done/is doing their best with the tools they had at the time, and to accept/forgive/move forward with my own life in the present with creative joy and unconditional love.
PIC 2: Time to activate my divine feminine! Time to evaluate my actions -- which ones are truly in alignment with my current self/goals/passions, and which are just based on habits/fears/inertia? What are the motives for each of my endeavors? Time to let things go that don't serve, so the truest, most inspiring goals can light my creative fires. I have already sown the seeds I need to sow for my current passions, but now I need to slow down and tend to them carefully, trusting that they are enough, rather than rushing around to plant more for fear of missing out on something. I should hold tight to my ideals of being a vessel for peace and love, and be guided by my dreams of living an enlightened life. Sacred rituals are becoming more and more important to me, such as the time I took yesterday to do my giant spread. This is also another reminder for me to meditate more regularly, and perhaps to restart some kind of yoga. My body is a MESS right now, but there has to be some kind of gentle yoga I could do.
