Tempus Fugit, Part III

...And then sometimes you drive 200 miles and stay awake all night to watch the Orionides, only to experience the fortunate side effect of witnessing the sun rise over cornfields.

There's something to be said for wishing every day were as good as the last.

Beautiful !

I once read that the red glow of the moon during a lunar eclipse is the light from every sunrise and sunset happening on earth at that moment.

Intellectually I knew why the light was red - but I'd never thought of it like that, and will never look at it the same way again.

Glen - Intellectually or no, in a way, that's precisely what it is.

Eli - Thanks!
