Solar eclipse and not only

Curious coincidence that shouldn’t have happened but did happen.

Last time I watched a solar eclipse it was 20th March 2006 and I was at my high school senior year.
And now, 9 years later, even if super late, this might be another year of important decisions
(Let’s just hope changes will run toward a more positive direction)

This time I was at home and been able to take pictures with my camera.

Solar eclipse - 20th March 2015

I guess I can’t complain.

The better part yet occurred on the ground.

I definitely spent a couple of sweet and funny hours with my father
He is beyond passionate about astrophysics, if you see me looking up to the sky I’m just using a piece of my father’s inheritance (as well as when I take pictures)
I took pictures of him taking picture of the solar eclipse, he of course complained but I do not care. It’s a something to show to his grandkids for sure.
Actually I hope he can live long enough to teach to grandkids how to find some of the most important stars and constellations as he did with me.

It was nice to see the old lady who lives in a nearby building changing behaviour for at least a few seconds.
So far I have always seen a sad/tired expression on her face, sometimes she looks angry.
Today,  when she saw me, my mother and my father looking up to the sky she did her her best to catch our attention.
When we turned at her, the expression on her face was totally different, it turned into the expression you can find on the face of curious young lady, she asked with gesture “what’s going on?!”
Here the fun started because the 3 of us started yelling “there is a solar eclipse”, we were yelling for the desperate attempt to overcome the street sounds, but she is probably a little deaf too so she was not understanding… I was starting to think about what to do to tell her but fortunately there was a young woman at her side that repeated the information for her.
The old lady smiled, probably thought we were a crazy family (not that far away from truth)
She spent a few more minutes outside on her balcony and when she decided she wanted to get back inside her apartment she waved to us.
I waved back.
I am curious to see what is going to happen in the next days since I often see her when I take pictures on the balcony or study there.

And…all this of course reminded me of  a 9 years old promise.
The friend who enjoyed the idea that triggered that promise died 1 year and 3 months later, but I have no reason to not keep the given word.

Even if for just 1 second it was nice to think he was somewhere around enjoying the show.
It has been fun to imagine that probably a solar eclipse is among the most boring thing you can see where I hope he is now.
I definitely giggled at the idea that if he heard me repeating my promise he said what he often said “you are a goofy girl” but enjoyed the idea.

Or maybe…

A day had been super light

the following super dark

A thought,
like a yelling angry voice,
crossed my mind:
“see? this it the proof you are fooled,
first amazing moments
and then drama,
more than one drama,
all in a day,
dramas bigger than you
one of those will destroy you
You are being fooled and you are fooling yourself”

Then I saw the last picture I shared with friends

Sunset from Rifugio Citelli - 18th October 2014

and a thought,
like a whispering calm voice,
crossed my mind:
“Or maybe it proves exactly the opposite
you are just being invited to never forget about light”

I look for something…

Full Moon, Crateri Silvestri, People - 10th August 2014
that gives me a reason to get up,
that helps me to go beyond human weakness.

A place where…

Castelmola (ME) - 16th July 2014

entertainment features are not necessary.

That’s Sicily,


You just have to choose a nice spot and contemplate Beauty shining at its best.

You can do it with friends and family or you can just sit alone and enjoy the show.

Or you need a broken laptop and closest place where you can have it fixed is 50km away from your hometown 🙂

Be content

I wanted to catch the full moon rising from the sea.
Clouds on the horizon stole the moment I have been waiting for

Full moon 12th July 2014

I guess I have to be content with the above shot


Next month I’ll try again.
