Eclipse (Paris I)

Stopping over in Paris for a couple of days on my way back to the US. Always good to be back home. In the tram coming back from the dentist, I realize that the partial solar eclipse is going on and that I forgot the special glasses home. I can't resist the temptation to look up. The light goes through some leaves and the small space between them each acts as a pinhole camera, giving an image of the crescent Sun. A magnificent spectacle that I am eager to share with my fellow travelers. No one cares enough to raise their eyes to the light. I can't keep mine off the spectacle. When I arrive at my destination and get off the train, everything is spotty and my eyes hurt. I should know better.
