That’s right folks, your favorite digital agency just got even cooler. We were lucky enough to be right in the path of the 8/21/17 eclipse. And it was amazing.
I’ll be the first to admit that I had no idea what the big deal was about the eclipse . . . August has seemed so far away for so long that I just figured I’d catch up when it got closer. And then bam! It was here. Only fashionably late to the party, I was able to scrounge up some killer glasses from Scopedawg Optics. The office was abuzz this morning with anticipation and making sure that every person had their special eye-gear. After I piggy-backed off some other people heading down to the river front, I was all caught up on the hype.
The river was full of excited people watching as the moon slowly engulfed the sun–it was outstanding. Up until the moment of total coverage, the air got cooler and the light had almost a heavenly quality–like everything was glowing. Once the moment of totality came, it was clear we were all witness to something rare and breathtaking. The sun’s rays were just barely peaking around the dark moon and everyone took their glasses off to stand and stare in awe.
And just as soon as it came, it went. Now it’s back to the grind of daily work, and a calm quiet of focus and productivity has fallen over the entire office. We’ll see you again in 7 years!
