i’ll be seeing you

Posted on Updated on

I'll be seeing you In all the old familiar places That this heart of mine embraces All day and through In that small cafe The park across the way The children's carousel The chestnut trees, the wishing well I'll be seeing you In every lovely summer's day In everything that's light and gay I'll always think of you that way I'll find you in the morning sun And when the night is new I'll be looking at the moon But I'll be seeing you I'll be seeing you In every lovely summer's day In everything that's light and gay I'll always think of you that way
I’ll be seeing you
In all the old familiar places
That this heart of mine embraces
All day and through
In that small cafe
The park across the way
The children’s carousel
The chestnut trees, the wishing well
I’ll be seeing you
In every lovely summer’s day
In everything that’s light and gay
I’ll always think of you that way
I’ll find you in the morning sun
And when the night is new
I’ll be looking at the moon
But I’ll be seeing you
I’ll be seeing you
In every lovely summer’s day
In everything that’s light and gay
I’ll always think of you that way

dance of the blue moon

ahh- sweet mystery of life- you continue to elude me. it is commonly known that “once in  a blue moon” refers to something that doesn’t happen everyday. this fascinating concept both attracts and  repels me. i would humbly submit that a bit of its allure stems from the idea that there are patterns in our world that take some time to really notice along with effort to actually let them be revealed.

this moon cycle finds me connecting this boomeranging pattern that my emotional body wanders through like a labyrinth. first i believe. then i overtrust all the while filling my days actively trying to please and impress. then just as a “blue moon” appears, so does a blip in the rhythm this dance. an alternate truth emerges i experience a temporary blinding by the blue moon, unable to see simply and having to rely on my other senses in order to complete normal routines.

it’s strange and it seems true- with proof only resting upon my ability to dis-engage from one labyrinth and re-engage with another. as the decades elapse, i witness this whole ballet play out again and again. the movements and the pattern of the dance of my blue moon are so familiar and so emtionally connected that each time i am mesmerized. blue raster optical box chronicle

The next Blue Moon is July 31, 2015. In recent decades, many people have begun using the name Blue Moon to describe the second full moon of a calendar month. There was a full moon on July 2, 2015. There’s another full moon on July 31. So the July 31 full moon will be called a Blue Moon, according to this definition.

The time between one full moon and the next is close to the length of a calendar month. So the only time one month can have two full moons is when the first full moon happens in the first few days of the month. This happens every 2-3 years, so these sorts of Blue Moons come about that often.

When was the last Blue Moon, according to the monthly definition? It happened on August 31, 2012.
