Tonight is a blue moon. It feels like a red letter day – something to notice and remember, this second full moon in a month.
I can’t recall clocking the blue moon days before the last one – it was just an expression, wasn’t it?
Something people said.
“Once in a blue moon.”
Now I am noticing.
The last blue moon was the 31st December 2009.
A blue moon on new year’s eve – it only happens every two decades or so.
It was the day of my mother’s funeral, a day so beautiful, cold, crisp and clear.
The sun set golden on the river on the night of the last blue moon.
Tonight’s blue moon is reminding me.
