πŸ‘‹ Steph here. I spent yesterday afternoon at Kingsley Park in Cambridge with hundreds of other people trying to catch the solar eclipse.

I know, I know. We're not in the path of totality, and you're probably tired of hearing about it. So am I.

  • Just wanted to share one of the rare moments in 2024 where we'll all feel united for a cause, however ostensibly goofy.

Some shoutouts: To the kind stranger who handed me an extra pair of special glasses when I informed her my friend and I were too late to get a free set.

  • To the local band that played the obligatory anthems, "Brain Damage" and "Eclipse" by Pink Floyd.
  • To Aicha, a local whom I photographed watching the eclipse.
