Lunar Eclipse




Life, this vastly mysterious process
to which our culture inures us,
lest we become useless citizens!

-Jim Harrison


It was a clear, cold night in Michigan, and we had quite a bit of fun with the boys watching the spectacular lunar eclipse.

I hope you had the opportunity to see it as well.

I saw it from bedroom window. It was high in the sky over the top of my apartment building. Quite lovely.

Hey--I saw your name in my shiny new Poets & Writers--the announcement for the Arts & Letters prize.

Congrats again! V. well deserved.

We had only glimpses through the clouds but the excuse to take a night walk with my soon-to-be-too-cool 11 year old daughter was worth it. Standing out on Lake Leelanau watching the clouds blow by as the moon was eaten up, we got one good moment of red earth-shone moon.

The moon stood over my front balcony, a great red orange in the sky. Because of that moon, I had a conversation with a neighbor for the first time -- she was out walking her dog.

I missed the eclipse. I was at the Y with Paul Simon and Billy Collins. Not with them with them, but in the same room as. The lights and tall buildings in the city impeded my view. The clouds on the island did not help. I'm sure it was wonderful. I look for it in 2010.
