Blue Moon

Such a fitting way to say good-bye to the Oughts and Welcome 2K10. Tonight’s full moon will be the second full moon during this month of December. This is a rare event and worth going outside to view. Except of course if you live in Portland where it is pouring down rain (surprise!) and it won’t be visible.

2009 has not been a particularly good year for some of us. My stroke in June, Windy’s decision to end her marriage, the loss of Andy’s treasured pet. But it has had a few good spots like our family camping trip and our Solstice celebration, and now that it is ending, we are all hopeful that Ten will bring days of joy and happiness.

At this point in my life, there is no point in wasting time looking in the rearview mirror. Tonight we’ll put up the new calendars and wait for the ball to drop at Times Square. Ember will bang on the dented pot her mother banged on years ago. Windy & Ember will spend the night. Scott is coming for dinner. Phil & Debbi will celebrate at home, and Andy and Laura may be able to see the Blue Moon in Arizona where they are visiting Laura’s parents.

Wherever you are, sing a verse of “I see the moon, the moon sees me” and think of us. Happy New Year to all.
