This Book-in-a-Page was created during the total solar eclipse in August, 2017; we were in Glendo, Wyoming. The drawings, using watercolor pencils, show the phases as the moon completely blocked out the sun. Whenever we travel, my spouse takes photographs and I make sketches; this is our ritual. We always try to observe and participate in astronomical and geographic events because we love the intersection between art and science.
RiTUAL. A ceremonial act ~ Rites used in the course of worship ~ The performance of ceremonial acts ~ The prescribed form of conducting the ceremony ~ A method of procedure that is followed without variation ~ performance with gestures, words, and objects, often in a sequestered place.
