Lunar Eclipse

The last time a lunar eclipse coincided with the winter solstice was five hundred years ago and Bloody Mary was up to something bad. So we heard. And so we had to see it.

Trouble is, we had to GET UP to see it.

(Since you're wondering... No, the guy in the chair is not part of our family.)

He's fortunate we didn't shoot him, pulling into our driveway in the middle of the night. Nothing (not even the moon) can eclipse the fright he would have given us if we had not recognized his car.

"Watching and waiting, looking above..."

Filled with warm coffee.

The moon becomes lost in the clouds. Again.

Candace perfects her foot-stomping routine.

After reaching full eclipse, the moon disappeared into the clouds...

...and Faith disappeared into the house.

The moon emerges from the umbra...

...and Faith emerges from the house.

All that talk about feminine energy and I didn't see any around.
