A Much Needed Break and a Full Solar Eclipse

A Much Needed Break and a Full Solar Eclipse

Hey all! Life has been fairly crazy lately, as I’m sure you’ve been able to tell…since I’ve lately had to change my post schedule from three days a week to once a week. A 9-5 can take a lot out of you, and this time every year is the busiest for me. This year seemed particularly more busy and stressful, which caused my poor blog to take a backseat! I’ve been working hard to keep up with my own ventures. Once I start and work as hard on something as I have on this blog, there’s no way I’m quitting that easily! Anyway, things have calmed down a bit and I feel fairly burnt out…it’s not often I get a legit vacation. However, now is the time! I’ll be heading up to Oregon to see the full solar eclipse at the Global Eclipse Gathering, put on by the Symbiosis festival out of California and other major festivals from around the world.

This is the first time a full eclipse has traversed across the United States in 99 years, so it’s a pretty significant deal! Just about every artist that has graced flyers across the global festival circuit will be there, most of which will take care of my entire artist wish list. Over 30,000 people are expected to pour into Big Summit Prairie in Oregon, and I have never been to any event of that size. My husband and I are driving all the way up, and I’m way too excited…this is such a much needed break! I hope more of you get the chance to experience the eclipse, or at least the partial eclipse from wherever you are. You can find more information about traffic, weather, and where it is expected to be visible, here.

Style wise, I’ll be wearing all of my favorite sustainable, organic and/or independently-designed festival apparel. I may or may not take photos, as sometimes with awesome events like this you forget you even have a camera! I will return on the 28th, and depending on how much catch-up I have to do after that, I’ll hopefully be back to my regular posting schedule of three days a week again. Either way, I’ll see you all again soon.

    I’m excited to hear all about it! I watched the coverage live from NASA and it was incredible! I saw a full solar eclipse when I was 8, and have seen partial ones since, but we are not due another full one until 2090! Bit long to wait, ha ha.
