“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,
