Rhapsody In Blue II

“Love loveth best of all the year October’s bright blue weather.” ~ Helen Hunt Jackson

October’s Bright Blue Weather” was my piano teacher’s favorite poem.  I think of her often at this time of year and I miss her… until I read “the poem” and smile.

(And yes, my wind sock has coffee mugs on it.)  Viva la Coffee Revolution!  (Perhaps it’s time for another?)

But, the point of this post is not music.  Nor poetry.  Nor coffee.

(Nor the word nor.)

Although they’re an integral part of my life.  (Except nor.)

This, my friends, is a celebration of blue… Part II!

(Not the best illustration of my point, but I love that picture.)

Here’s my point…

At this red/orange/gold time of year, don’t overlook the obvious.

Look up and consider the Truth:

Blue is the backdrop of life… even in the midst of decay.

In loving memory of a mentor/teacher/friend who taught me…

Dissonance can be beautiful.

Blue is brightest in the throes of October.

And, harmony is surprisingly possible…

When you stand alone.

Enjoying October’s blues,

~ Kim

  1. That lightning tree photo is absolutely stunning…I am still fumbling with my camera but I love minimalistic photography like that where colours play a beautiful role.

    Gershwin is also one of my all-time faves and needless to say Rhapsody in Blue is close to my heart!

  2. Christina, I didn’t know that about “blue” — I learn something new every day! Remember we discussed “voice” in the past? I can’t help but notice you’ve found yours! Thanks for coming to visit. :)

  3. Wow. Stunning.
    I heard that blue is the hardest color to capture in a photo. You are truly talented!

    Thank you for all the sweet comments on my writing lately. It means a lot to me :)

  4. U play the piano too? U never failed to impress me, Kimby :) Blue is one of my fave colours; it calms me down & relaxes me. Don’t forget to pick up your award, dear. Looking fwd to your post!

    • Hi, Shirley, and thanks for the award! (I’ll do a post next week and pass along the fun!) This weekend I’ve got two music gigs, so I guess I’m putting all those years of piano lessons to use. :) Fun times!
