It’s a work night, so we can’t stay up to enjoy the whole lunar eclipse. However, we simply had to take advantage of the excellent viewing conditions to catch the beginning. What a great excuse for family time around a bonfire? Before building the fire, I gave an offering of milk to Brighid, and prayed for a warm, safe fire this night. We stayed out until the moon was half obscured by Earth’s shadow. It’s always so humbling to look up and out. Such events bring us closer, I think.
