This morning I went to my little local bank in Akron, Pa., to do bank business.
When I pulled into the parking lot, I immediately noticed something unusual at the door of the bank.
Just a few feet in front of me: a man in a white shirt yelling and motioning with his arm, another man standing by, a big gray box on the ground wedged between the door.
I took a moment to look, trying to determine what was happening. The man in the white shirt appeared to be in some sort of distress, the other man removing his own shirt and gesturing with it.
Deciding it was safe to proceed, I stepped out of my car and approached the two men.
The white-shirted man was a worker who had been remove a large piece of box-like equipment from the bank. The equipment had fallen from the wheeled truck and slammed on his finger, which was caught between the box and the metal door frame. The finger was nearly severed. There were smears of blood on his clothes, the box and other places. One of the bank employees called 911 and stepped out to the curb to flag down the ambulance.

The total eclipse of the sun is today.
Astronomers, the people who watch all sorts of cosmic phenomena, define the eclipse as the time when the new moon passes between the earth and the sun. The sun seems to “disappear,” and the sky becomes dark.
Astrologers say the eclipse is more than a spectacular visual experience. Because they chart the deeper meanings of the movements of these magnetic heavenly bodies, they look at how these shifting energetic forces impact our lives.
So, we have the option of looking outward, noticing the dazzling display of light and dark, an awesome demonstration of the mysteries of the universe and forces that are so much bigger than us.
And we have the option of looking inward, noticing our own blockages and shadows, as well as the small seed-shifting energies that want attention and nurturing.
