Reflections on the 2017 Eclipse and Memorable Moments


I drove back early from Canada to avoid the Eclipse traffic, to be honest. But, that meant I got to enjoy the Eclipse with my family instead of somewhere on I-5 between The Border and Portland.  Initially, I scorned the event. I was too full of myself to get caught up in the hype. Yet, as the moon slowly covered the sun, I got more and more excited. As my wife and kids watched our little world change as the sun surrendered to the moon, I realized I almost missed sharing a moment with my family. 

Pride should never be allowed to rob anyone of the pleasure of a memorable moment.
