I have much to write about the CTRE — there were many highspots, including Wynton Marsalis giving a lecture on creativity, complete with demonstrations in jazz — but that will have to wait.

Tonight’s highlight is today’s partial eclipse of the sun. I didn’t have sophisticated hardware — just a handheld pinhole, a handheld piece of paper, and a handheld camera (yes, that did require three hands…fortunately, Diane had two of them with which to help me!), and the pictures show it, but that’s how reality is sometimes.
