“I lost my prescription sunglasses during the wild and crazy weeks of October 2014 during which we were on the road most of the time. I don’t know precisely when they vanished or where.“
OK, I took third and fourth sentence but I felt it needed some explanation. I don’t feel the need to include this in my post, since every half an hour my sentence in real life is “Where are my glasses?”
I am a member of “I lose my glasses AT LEAST three times a day” group on Facebook, it is THAT serious. And, in fact I don’t have them on right now. Where are they?
Just a sec…
Found them. On a table. Three rooms away.
So, If by any chance I end up on a road for some time, this sentence could became mine.
Also, I found incredible page with stunning photos every day which have provided my curious mind with incredible photos of a Solar Eclipse from few days ago. Do check it out if you like awesome stuff: APOD.nasa
Hey! I really had to come here just to post this, I would not be me if I didn’t. 😀
Tomorrow is a Solar Eclipse!
AND it is visible in Europe! For the first time since 1999.! Which I remember, by the way. 🙂 That does not mean that there were no Solar Eclipses in between (2006., 2011.) but none as visible as the one in 1999.
Here is the map of where it will be visible and I think you can get the info of when at your local online media.
And now, lets get more sciency. Is that a word? Now it is. 😉
What causes a solar eclipse?
A solar eclipse happens whenever the new moon passes in front of the sun, and the moon’s shadow falls on our planet. A solar eclipse is only possible at new moon because that’s the only time whereby the moon to go in front of the sun, as seen from Earth. Most of the time, however, the new moon either swings north or south of the solar disk, so no eclipse of the sun takes place.
Why new moon? On the day of new moon, the moon rises when the sun rises. It sets when the sun sets. It crosses the sky with the sun during the day. (source: earthsky.org)
Protect your eyes.
Do not look directly at the Sun. 😦 It causes permanent damage to your eye and possible blindness. That is no fun. That’s why you can look at the Solar Eclipse through glasses design for it and better telescopes with filters design for it. Also, you can catch a glimpse through a glass covered in carbon black, but that is not recommended. The best way to look at it is to make your projector. It is simple and instructions are here:MAKE YOUR PROJECTOR
Oh I can’t wait for professional photos of tomorrows Solar Eclipse and images from ISS (International Space Station) 😀
Summer is gone but however short, it is not forgotten.
While I am waiting for the first snow here (yaaay) I can’t forget summer. Every season has its beauty but summer is the most beautiful to me. 🙂 Although I am pretty pumped up about winter and snow, Christmas, New Year…. AND I do feel veeery excited about spring because my birthday is then and everything is waking up. OK, I love every season (except autumn, cough) and I do like the exchange of them but as soon as I checked out Weekly Photo Challenge I remembered summer. Fine. First thought I had is that I don’t share nearly as enough of my photography here. 😉
This is summer to me this year. Sitting in the grass, enjoying the sun, inhaling the smell of the fresh cut grass mixed with cherry flowers and looking at bright blue sky. ❤
Daily Prompt: You’re asked to recite a poem (or song lyrics) from memory — what’s the first one that comes to mind? Does it have a special meaning, or is there another reason it has stayed, intact, in your mind?
As everyone who has been to my blog to stay (hi guys/girls ❤ ) knows… I have song in my head almost all the time. Sometimes it is for no reason, but sometimes like today, it has some meaning.
It was sunny outside and I had to go out for a bit. As soon as I came back home, the sun hid behind the clouds and it’s not coming back. So, I’m the “she” and I “have been away” from outside a lot in the past month. Again, my beloved readers will know why. 🙂 There is so much meaning in this song I am singing for the last hour.
Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone It’s not warm when she’s away. Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone And she’s always gone too long Anytime she goes away…
But, every day I was happy about something and honestly, I don’t know how I fucking do it. Yes, there are times when I just want to sleep everything away and when I cry because I want to be free from pain but I don’t want to go there now.
Let me tell you what made me happy… 🙂
I was with my love, and I don’t mean chocolate 😉
I have three herbal cremes for (against?) pain so I was almost bathing in them and bf helped me every way he could.
I ate an amaaazing tiramisu, it really made my friday morning.
I discovered that I, in fact, love cinnemon for which I was sure I hate. As a concequence I drank a loooot of tea from apple and cinnemon. A lot. Yumm.
I cuddled with the most cuddly kitty I have ever “met”, my bf cat who is 5 months and is…adorable. She followed me around like a puppy. 🙂
It is now cold outside and it was cloudy/raining for days and it brought even some pretty big storms last week, but today the sun broke through the clouds. I loved it…
Every moment I was feeling better, I cherished. I sang to myself.
I woke up. And I see and I can walk, and talk and hear, and I am loved. It is a blessing. I don’t feel afraid. I feel like this is a new chapter and it is only going better. I know it. 🙂
I am really looking forward to reading all your comments…. ❤
It is cold and cloudy, rain is falling on and off… It is like most of the July was. The promise of a summer stayed a promise. We had few weeks of nice warm weather when combined everything, but not even close to the real summer. I refuse to think that this is it.
I can feel the sun on my face, summer breeze and eating watermelon for dinner outside. ❤
I am waiting for the sun to shine.
It’s a brand new day What I wanna be My whole life Is waiting for the sun to shine I take my self outside Leave my whole life behind I sit along and wait For the sun to shine…
Which was funny because I saw at least three post titled Easy Choice. 🙂
I love to watch documentaries, specially the ones that have something to do with space, animals and history. And there are few people in each area that made so much difference that we literally couldn’t live without their contribution to modern world as we know it. Today I watched a documentary about observing stars and comets and the way they move in relation to our planet. From ancient civilizations to 17. century. Specifically, month of August in 1684. in London Cambridge. The meeting so important we know about it 330 years later! Edmond Halley went to find a man who was known as a man with hard temper who was living alone, staying away from people. Isaac Newton. The thing Halley wanted from Newton was mathematical calculation of the way planets orbit our Sun in Solar system and he couldn’t find anyone who would make something like that. Newton said that he already made that calculation (!!!) but couldn’t find it, so he will do it again and send it by mail to Halley. Halley was skeptical but in few days a letter arrived. And in it… A clear mathematical explanation of force previously noted but not explained – GRAVITY.
What an amazing moment that was!
I hated math, trust me… But even I know calculation for gravity (some of it) from physics… To think that Isaac was/is so important that children all over the world study by his calculations and scientist go from his basics to study more and to expand our knowledge of universe….. That is mind-blowing!!! He made a base for our space exploration and missions in space. Right now above us, there is International Space Station with scientists and astronomers on board making experiments about how things behave in space and similar….
You also probably know Halley, he did amazing work also in area of astronomy, but we all know him by Halley’s comet – Because he found out that the comets that were passing by and being written about in many cultures, going from 3000 years before new era, was actually ONE comet coming back in time difference of 76 years. Wow! There were other comets also, but this discovery shook everything people knew about astronomy, gravity, Solar system at the time…
I thought that we saw Halley’s comet because i remember I was looking at one when I was a kid, but today I found out that was not Halley’s. This one is coming back in 2066. Yay!! I can hope… 😉
So, you see with how much awe and excitement I am writing about people who lived 4 centuries ago and books with math equations and I am not even loving math!! Imagine what does this mean to everyone who is in the field of math, physics, astronomy…really, any science…
On the other side is the now.
People who write books want to sell them. Want to make a living out of them. Want to buy a house with money they get. Halley and Newton didn’t have luxuries, sometimes they didn’t even have a paycheck. But they sure did have passion.
I would love to reach out to people. Now. To talk to them, to change something. To inspire. To live. So, this question is so difficult to me and as usual, I will make my own answer.
“I am reaching out to many people about something important.”
Does it say “beep beep boop” to you too when you start a new post?
These recent changes in WP are so weird, if I’m in the serious mood and about to rant about something, beginning with those words make me feel silly. 😀
I am mixture of emotions. Kinda mad, kinda frustrated, just a little bit sad and probably a little bit happy…. Weird shitz is going on. In Zagreb, the summer weather is non-existent. It is cloudy, raining, cold and windy. I do not like this joke. 😦
I want sun.
Summer is my favorite season and now it is letting me and everyone here down. People have planned vacations but the sea is cold from the rain and wind. I am indoors most of the year, so please, universe, SEND SOME SUMMER WEATHER… Pretty please.
I don’t feel inspired. I don’t feel like finishing my dress. I don’t feel like blogging. – that’s the part making me sad.
While I can’t get the Vitamin Sea, I want SUN and Vitamin D.
Daily Prompt asked about people we accidentally catch in our photos, and to make a story about them. No! What? I really don’t like having other people in my photos, it’s not their fault they are in my way… I don’t shoot portraits, if someone happens to end up on my photo I make sure their face is not recognizable, that they are far away or turned away from camera. I don’t know, I think everyone has the right to privacy and anonymity, if not chosen differently. Imagine that I end up in someone’s photo and that person is posting me on WordPress, making story about me. I dislike it.
