JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 210 :: total eclipse

21 Aug

Kind Reminders.

What a day! Historical. Amazing. Scientifically mind-boggling…. and on top of all that…. I made this! A box. A magic box. I watched the eclipse through this box.

We couldn’t track down the special glasses in time to replace the recalled ones that Justin found. But, it made me realize this: In such a high-tech world it’s easy to forget how things actually work. Which is why this box was the second attempt at an eclipse watching box that I made today. My first one was too small. But then I figured it out. (Thanks Google!)

Just. In. Time.

I watched the sun and the moon through the pinhole reflection in my box. But the COOLEST thing I saw today was the shadows being cast across everything.

Onto my desk:

From the trees…

Across the parking lot…

And the sides of the building…

So many moon shapes. Everywhere I looked.

It was literally eye-opening on a day when we were all told to keep our eyes shut – or at least protected. What a very, very, very cool thing to witness in the middle of the day. It was a BIG DEAL, of course, but also a good reminder to stay fascinated, and illuminated, and connected with the Earth we all call home.

How kind.

More tomorrow….

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 40 :: love by the mooooooon

10 Feb

So big. 

The moon. It’s so beautiful tonight. While we missed the hullabaloo over the comet and the eclipse and probably something else… we did see the big, fat, amazing, take up the entire sky MOON tonight!

She’s a snow moon. I love this shot Justin captured. AKA: The Death Star:

And, then there is this one. All etheric and cloudy and romantic.
(Also a Justin pic!)

Then, there’s the one I captured. It’s all sorts of BLURRY and bad. But I’m being KIND this year, so I took a second look to see if I could see anything beautiful. And you know what I found?

A heart. It’s there…. you just have to LOOK for it.

And, isn’t that the truth. It may be the first real lesson in this year of Intentional Acts of Kindness that is coming my way. What we LOOK for, we FIND.

Happy Looking!

More tomorrow….

BLOG – GIFT DAY 307 – a month of inspiration :: wake up

3 Nov

Did you catch the eclipse this morning? If not, you can catch some photos of this amazing occurrence here.

As for me, I slept in. That’s why we have the internet, right?

I have to admit, missing the moment does have me thinking about the moon and the stars and what it means to wake up.

So today, in this month of inspiration, I dedicate today to waking up… in all sorts of ways.

First, a little tune to rev you up and wake me up.

Apparently, this eclipse is ushering in a new opportunity for all of us. I don’t follow astrology, but I do find this list of ways this eclipse will wake you up fascinating from Mystic Mama:

“This eclipse marks an opportunity to stop and take stock, turn within and ask ourselves some probing questions about what’s really going on in our lives…”


“Focus on what is working. Focus on the good in your life.”

No matter the season, the moon or the stars, I love the idea of starting off with a FRESH SLATE. The good news is… we all have a fresh slate.

Every single morning.

In fact, we are waking up to an entirely new season today. Did you set your clocks back?

And finally, no matter where you are right now, I have to highlight this from Kelley Rosano:

Define yourself by what is true for you.

Now, please excuse me, I’m off to prepare for the Patriots Game which is scheduled to be aired on the west coast according to the CBS coverage map. (See? An abundance of miracles are all around us!)

How will you wake up this week?

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless}
