Before my Friday five I have a story to share that relates to yesterdays post on words. Little and I were watching Mrs. Spiders Sunny Patch Friends, and one of the little bugs said someone cast a spell on him and he lost his smile. Eventually they figured out that he lost his smile when his older brother teased him for being a baby. Mrs. Spider said “sometimes a careless word is like casting a spell” ah the power of words. Be careful and thoughtful when choosing them. OK moving on to the five.
- A Blue moon is the second full moon that happens within the same month. This is interesting to us, but no so interesting to our ancestors who used the moons to mark their months.
- In fact what I think I like most about a blue moon is that it reminds me of how things change and how they stay the same. We as people are still pulled to the moon (yes pun intended) We watch for the changes in it and even none witchy folk pay attention. And yet our modern life has changed and our calender has changed so that it doesn’t quite fit the natural cycle of time (leap year?) but is more linear.
- I have a book that I sing to little every night. It is Hush Little Baby by Sylvia Long. On of the last lines is “Mama’s gonna search for the Harvest moon” I always change the lyrics to represent what moon we are actually in so I have been singing “Mama’s gonna search for the blue moon” .
- Feel free to celebrate by doing something out of the ordinary. Do something you would only do once in a blue moon 🙂
