I intended to write this post approximately a week ago when the event occurred.
Early in the morning, approximately 6:30, I was on my way to a book signing. I didn’t exactly know the area that well so I left ahead of time so if I got lost I would have time to find the bookstore before 9:00 A.M.
It was cloudy that morning but just over the mountain top among the clouds of the morning appeared a white sun. I don’t mean like traditional yellowish tinted white sun. I mean when it rose stark white it looked more like the moon but all color disappeared. Everything became black, grey, and white. The highway, cars, field all because a vast landscape of gray and white. Inside the car was still it’s normal hue.
I took a picture of it because I was certain I had sudden gone color blind. The images came out white and black too. So it wasn’t just my eyes it was the camera’s lens also.
It only last a few minutes but it was beautiful although, it had the eerie feeling of a black and white horror movie. I was glad to see the sun change to yellowish white and color return to the land. It’s said those who are out very late or early sees unusual thing. I haven’t seen a UFO yet and if I do I’ll get a picture of it.
At least the bright side of the day was I got to meet a reader who told me my books helped her to get through the immense of graduate school studies where she reads a thousand or more pages per week in several different courses. I asked did she mean a 1000 pages in all the courses combined. She said no, she mean some assignments are 1000 pages coupled with twenty to thirty page essays.
That isn’t my picture. This is a stock picture that looks closest to what I saw that morning.
