The Magic of a Blue Moon

10/31/20

2020 has been a year for the books and we still have two months to go. There is no need to list our collective raw woes…we are all living them every day, some more so than others…

As the Holidays approach we can only hope for a turning point to help us move on….

I remember my mother saying “It is always darkest before things begin to turn “… I could just never tell where in fact the bottoms were found…

Sometimes there is a beacon way off in the dark which at first is just an imagined small spark.

I think I see one now…

And as always I turn to my guide, Angel riding a Cow.

” Hey you two, do you see that speck of white, that little bright star?”

( If you think they are with me only on long cross country rides, think again, they are my companions in a comfortable shared life).

Never much one for long talk , Flossie , the Cow, moos, but Angel whispers “Behold the Door at the Bottom of the Well”…

A point of light opens and before me lay visions to warm the soul…

At a loss for words, I paint them…

Flossie ,the erudite one, writes the verse for you…


Halloween is coming …so very soon…

Flying on…to Find that Unusual Huge Moon…

Oh, the Magic of the Rare Blue Moon

Quickly now!!! Short time is our mutual ruin…

Transformed…just in time!



There will not be another Blue Moon at Halloween until 2039…19 years from now…

Although my grand daughter Phoebe, who is three, has already declared me an “old man”… I will truly be an old man by then.

She will be graduating from college and her sister Violet will be just two years behind.

Memories of the Pandemic will be in the distant past and its unlikely either of them will know who was President last time a Halloween Blue Moon graced our Land. Time has a way of rolling on and putting perspective on our transient lives…

But maybe, just maybe, they will find these pictures again and save them to share with their own children in troubling times…

Dear Reader be safe now as always… but please take my advice…make the time to bask in a gift from Life. If you read this ‘fore the night is out, take a moment to bathe yourself in the Magic of the Tonight. With your loved ones, both here and in the Beyond, go outside …cover yourself in the light of that rare Magic Blue Moon. Savor the moment knowing such a glorious sight will not roll around again for a very long time…a time when God willing, you will be then transformed…older…wiser…and more beautiful than ever in the eyes of all those around…

Happy Halloween.
