#30day photochallenge day 8&9 time with friends

Yesterday was two great meals with friends.  These guys know just the right thing to say and they were the right people to be around yesterday.  Thanks Jeremy and Naomi- good coffee talk (with cherry pie) and great experience at BistroLQ pop up at the Good Girl Dinette.  I loved the fact that the courses and food I didn't care for you loved and the things I loved, you scrunched your nose at. I am so glad that I found rowing and the friendships from it.  I can't wait to get back into rowing this year.
 It was a pleasant surprise to meet up with Shawna and have some girl talk and possible summer dreams of road tripping.  Sandwiches were great as always at Dinks. _______________________ _________________________________

#30dayphotochallenge: day 7-partial eclipse of the sun

I worked all day, and all I had to look forward to was this partial eclipse of the sun but then circumstances got in the way…I would be off work only half an hour ‘til full “peak” so as usual, I wouldn’t see the climax.  I pulled over to capture a little of it and kept trying to resist the temptation to look at the sun.
This whole thing reminded me of the time in college-probably Spring of 95 when I was studying for finals and scrambling to help some upper classmen pass Modern Western Civ the day of an eclipse.  The sun changing like that just does something to you and the same weird feeling came over me today.  Mostly I recall making a sculpture out of jello for my basic art 3D class, the eclipse happening and a group of us looking through pin holes outside of the art building.  My friend Brad took some liberties and ate my newly graded art project like it was a jello shot.  He was a grad student so I assumed he’d had lots of practice where that was concerned.  
All felt right with the world and the future was promising.  I hope this partial eclipse resets these hopes and brings back the same feelings I had so long ago.
