Yesterday was the Equinox and in case anyone didn’t hear, there was a total eclipse of the sun by a supermoon. Talk about the birth of a new day!
I was blown away at the quality of light during the hours surrounding the eclipse and we spent the entire time outside. The light became heavy, rare – it had substance – and the air was super-charged. We tingled right through our nerve endings and when we finally went back indoors, we felt slightly high and charged all day. As if we’d been cleansed.
This photograph was taken about 20 minutes before totality.
It used to be that this was the beginning of the new year – this time of new growth, baby animals and warmth (in the northern hemisphere anyway). We feel as if we are starting afresh having been bathed and purified by a rare moment.
