“Once in a Blue Moon” is a saying that means “not very often”.
By definition, a blue moon is the second full moon to occur in a single calendar month.
On average it happens about once every two and a half years.
Last night the sky held a blue moon. There had been discussion about it on television and in my living room. People were talking about it on the internet.
I took note with a nod but it never entered my mind that I should get up and go look.
As Dave ( Blue Moon Dave) was going upstairs last night he said “you really should get your camera and go look at this moon”.
Oh, my camera.
So I stepped out on my front porch and looked up.
It took my breath away.
The light from the moon was causing the clouds around to glow. The shadows creating a picture worth the capture.
What a shame it would have been had I missed seeing it.
All I needed to do was look.
How many times do we miss something amazing because we’re too busy, preoccupied, or apathetic to just look?
So many things happen just “once in a blue moon”.
Life is beautiful.
