Total Eclipse of the Heart

There are lunar and solar eclipses, the latter of which you should not look into. L’Eclisse (1962) was a good title for the third part of Antonioni’s trilogy which was preceded by La Notte, but eclipse is a pregnant word. One partner in a relationship may eclipse the other (even the silent more withdrawn person may be running the show). If one activity eclipses or gets in the way of another, the penumbra of the recessive object still looms mercurially as a liminal presence. Shadows are the country cousins of eclipses. The words are almost but not quite fungible. The common ground these terms share is the overlaying of one person place or thing over another. If I stand between you and a source of light, the act is likely to produce or create a shadow or Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart."

read "The Dance of Reality" by Francis Levy, HuffPost

and listen to "Total Eclipse of the Heart" by Bonnie Tyler
