"We had the sky up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them, and discuss about whether they was made or only just happened." - Mark Twain ๐Ÿ“ธ @emilyblincoe

This is what wonder looks, and feels, like. ๐Ÿ“ธ @emilyblincoe ๐Ÿ“ @jedidiahjenkins

I saw a couple articles yesterday about the loss of productivity caused by the eclipse. Something like $700m lost because of 'distracted employees.' Ha! Makes me laugh. That we could even have the conversation. Something as miraculous and strange as the sky going black at 1:30pm for two minutes, and we talk about money. I mean, I don't mean to be critical. It is interesting to know how much a few minutes of our times is worth, I guess. But the fact that our country is suffering a divided conscience, a broken heart, and a polarized confusion like nothing I've seen in my life... and the sky would go black, inviting every single human being in its path to stop for a few minutes and gaze, is a bit of a miracle, a cosmic gift. And it sliced right across the whole damn country as if on purpose.

As I stood there, I thought how lovely unity is, but it only comes from simple problems. Seems that the only thing that would bring us all together is a giant meteor or alien invasion. Science and race and cultural narratives and American myths... these things are complex and our animal brains struggle. A big black orb in the sky, wow, we can all grasp that.

I thought about how long ago they predicted this eclipse. There's a NYTimes article from 1932 speaking about the eclipse on August 21st, 2017 like some futuristic fantasy. If science can so accurately predict the movements of the moon and the earth, I wonder why so many people disbelieve the chorus of scientists about our changing climate. I wonder if science's power of prediction is limitless. If everything is just complex math. Like, at some point in our future, will a doctor be able to predict a distant mood swing I'll have in 2061.

I thought about the people I was with, their component parts of joy, curiosity, kindness, gratitude, and mischief... and how I get to live life with them...and I get to cry with them... usually at beauty. - Jedidiah Jenkins

Today I got to witness, surrounded by some of my best friends on earth and enveloped in their love, something truly magical. Something that defined "awe-inspiring." I will never forget it. We are so very small...

I also can't believe I get to live in an era where I can take a photo like this on my PHONE. What the what?! Amazing. ๐ŸŒ˜ #Eclipse #Nashville #CarlSagan #MondayMantra

Laughter + Fight. What a combination. Thank you, Dick Gregory. RIP.

Thank you to the 45,000 Bostonians who showed up to out-chant the 133 Nazis who attempted to rally behind dead ideas that we helped defeat once and will defeat again. You drowned out words of hate with rallying cries of love. You give us all hope. In trying times you are holding steadfast to the greatest qualities of us. Community. Humanity. And love. #BostonStrong

I'm tremendously grateful to have friends who are disrupting the world for good, prioritizing quality culture, and shining lights on the incredible women in their workforce. Not to mention proving that doing good is also good for business.

Hidden gem? My rad jacket from the babe @rachelcomey says "SI VALES, VALEO" on the back. "If you are strong, I am strong." It's time to wear our hearts on our sleeves, and our jackets, and our shirts. #United
