I don't drink
lAt 2.45 this morning my wife and I walked along the seafront in our pyjamas (with coats over the top) to see the amazing night sky and watch the supermoon eclipsed by planet Earth. We walked about three miles and didn't see another soul or see a single light on. The eclipse was amazing and the moon went a beautiful red as seen here from stellarscapes.net (I stupidly forgot to take a camera in my haste to get out the door). I was continuously struck by how fresh and alive I felt only having had three hours sleep, and remembered that woolly head still drunk feeling I would have had years ago. I even felt as fresh getting up at six this morning for work, what a massive change. Both my wife and I each saw a shooting star and made a secret wish. If I can repeat the exercise to see the next supermoon eclipse in twenty years time I will know that someone at least was listening.
