July 22 Total Eclipse, Southern Japan
湯泊 Yudomari、屋久島 Yakushima、１１am
….. The rain let up and the sky was breaking. We were at a farm. The moon’s shadow raced towards us across the rough East China Sea. White crests dimmed. Then … wham! We got four whole minutes of totality. Could no longer see the waves, or many of the fields. The street lights came on.
….. A chill went down my spine and I began to run along the lane of puddles in the direction the light had gone: a sort of delirium.
In the seaside field
The cows don’t stop
