This morning Matt and I watched the sun eclipsing up at the quad, a patch of grass in the middle of the pine woods another top of Harlow hill. Back in 1999 Matt proposed to me up at the quad at eleven minutes past eleven on the eleventh of August at the zenith of the solar eclipse. Being up there brought back some lovely memories. Mum was there and Tina and baby Felix. We all celebrated with champagne back at Mum’s house and then Matt returned to work. Today our only company was Elsie and Annie-Mo who kept chasing after other people’s dogs. Afterwards Matt went to work and Annie-Mo and I went to toy library. This morning seems almost as long ago as 1999, it was magical to see the sun eclipse again, and watch it turn from a shining orb to a sliver not unlike the Cheshire cat’s smile, then slowly fill out again, turning from crescent to whole. The next solar eclipse will be in 2090. I wonder if with medical advances, Matt or I live to see it? They do say 112 years old is the new 102 or maybe even the new 92 by then.
