I feel ecliptic...

I feel ecliptic... and here comes the darkness on the sunlit cloudless sky.

This is not my first eclipse, but first time I noticed the drop of light. Sky is completely cloudless, but it is not really blue. Someway between blue and grey. Sun is shining at best, yet the chill is not gone. Even if you walk into sun, you feel as if it is evening sun.

A melancholy and enigmatic feeling is nagging behind my mind and it pulls me from anything I do.

What is that I'm feeling odd about? Life was as sunlit as it wras yesterday. I just chose to stay at home today.

Maybe it is more than the day-today life. Somewhere deep within we're emmensely connected to the lifegiving creator of ourselves. The almighty once and forall, the only almighty as far as earth life is concerned. I am not talking of GOD here, but unless of course you don't call it Sun god. Sun is everything for us, the sole energy source of life until Einstein interfered [excluding some deeper marine beings who depend of geothermal energy]. We are so much dependant on its presence.

We are capable of bearing its absence, not the failure. There is no such killing feeling than a fully lit Sun failing to kill the chill and gloom in a cloudless midday sky. You feel like end of world has come. Now I wonder... has it really? Who knows?

No wonder Mayans sacrificed humans till the chill and gloom is over. You never know when the fading Sun will recover. And we have only one sun, humans plenty.

Many thanks Rohitha and Kalhara for magnificent photos that you lend me for free.

Can someone explain why we have crescent-like shadows?



  1. Yeah, this time I noticed the sharp drop of light for the first time!

  2. annonymous, better use teh name in teh end. Anyway, it shud be the same feeling for all.

    It is a feeling on no definition. I end up coining I feel ecliptic, as no wrords wrill say it better

  3. Hmmm.... wonder whom/what we should sacrifice?

  4. Could it be a sign of things to come? I'm hardly the superstitious kind.

  5. Seshi,

    "things to come"... Is it an election prediction?

    Or further proof to aztechs and 2012 film makers?

  6. "No wonder Mayans sacrificed humans till the chill and gloom is over. " Is this true ? It's the other way around I guess. Even in the film Apocalypto, Jaguar Paw was saved only by a solar eclipse and was eventually able to escape to freedom from Mayan captivity.
    Anyway your writing skills seem to be fascinating. Wonderfully composed, nicely phased & quite thought provoking as well with some really interesting facts. No plans for moving to some literary work ? Seriously telling, you seem to have the skill.

  7. HLANGL;

    Tell you the honest truth I dont rem where exactly I read/heard about Mayan sacrifice. Most of us are mislead by many who misinterpreted, exaggerated, and "defamed" Mayans for half a dozen reasons, notably for the need to create stories out of them.

    But pls pls do not read Mel Gibson's version of history. I never found him a James Cameron at minimum - i.e. a person giving thorough study into the context of his movie. Instead Mel is a naked twister of history. He'll take anything that fits his story.

    Just gave some readings and found that the movie is full of faults.

  8. HLANGL;

    BTW thanks for encouragement. Writing bis a dream of mine, I mean serious writing. Yet found no path to get to the level I want, or find an opportunity to improve.
