The good news: The eclipse glasses I ordered from Amazon are on the approved NASA list (see Friday's post).
The bad news: They're not here yet. Luckily, I'm adept at returning their merchandise when they've flubbed the ball, and unless the US Postal Service comes through with a Lynn Swann diving save, I'm likely going to be viewing it from the links I planned below. Like I said, I'd rather have what's left of my eyesight the remainder of my life. Another (partial) eclipse if I'm so inclined is a plane ticket away.
Eclipse Live Stream NASA TV’s - Eclipse Across America: Through the Eyes of NASA
On Monday, Aug. 21, 2017 (today), a total eclipse will cross the entire United States, coast-to-coast, for the first time since 1918. If you can’t make it to the path of totality you can still safely view a partial eclipse and you can still enjoy totality through the eyes of NASA Television and NASA webcasts.
Viewers around the world will be provided a wealth of images captured before, during, and after the eclipse by 11 spacecraft, at least three NASA aircraft, more than 50 high-altitude balloons, and the astronauts aboard the International Space Station – each offering a unique vantage point for the celestial event.
NASA Television will air a four-hour show, Eclipse Across America: Through the Eyes of NASA, with unprecedented live video of the celestial event, along with coverage of activities in parks, libraries, stadiums, festivals and museums across the nation, and on social media.

That Friday night, for the sake of appearances, Quincie hung out with some of her track teammates after practice. By ten o’clock, she had enough of the inane conversations, forced laughter, and awkward pauses. She politely excused herself for the night, thankful to be rid of it all. A call came in from Shara while she was driving home, a call she thought about not answering. She turned down her radio.
“Hey, what’s up girl?” she said, and immediately had to pull her ear away from the phone.
“What’s DeAndre’s number?!” Shara yelled, furious about something.
“DeAndre? I thought you were hanging with Steven tonight.”
“I called his cell, and some other bitch answered,” she griped. “He grabbed the phone from her and tried to say it was his sister!”
“Maybe it was his sister.” Quincie tried to stifle her laughter.
“Yeah right,” Shara shot back. “What sister asks, ‘Who’s that bitch, and does she know about our son?” Quincie burst into…

Excerpt- Vacuum Draft Flows Part I
Green means go and the seconds in between become an infinite and hopeless abyss. The abyss consumed the fears, hopes and dreams of all who found themselves in its presence. Regret, that so many things have been left undone and too many things left unsaid. Pain, that there are no more opportunities and this is the absolute end of all things. Finally, bliss once a man or woman can sweat pure adrenaline and testosterone fuels superhuman strength and senses. Human eyes adjust to slits, brows are frowned, teeth are grit…

Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t.
