Stream of Consiousness

A Maasai tribesman reaches up to hold the encroaching moon in place over the sun and in so doing, reveals what cannot be seen—yet remains ever-present—in broad daylight. Reflected in the pool beneath him like some mystical emulsion, the Milky Way and Universe unfurls, glowing like a cosmic film of bioluminescent plankton. To wade into the shallows is to step deeply into the past and present at the same time and know oneself in the place of it all forever. But one must act quickly, for time becomes increasingly fleeting, precious, and rare as it moves forward, like the eclipse that produces the celestial shadow that races across the face of the Earth to deny us light while producing it in the darkest paths of our lives towards our fulfillment.
