Blue Moon Rising over Hannah Hill
The wind was up and it was so cold I only got off two shots before I lost feeling in my hands. Unfortunately I can’t operate my camera with gloves on. The sacrifices one makes for art. I wasn’t willing to let go of a few fingers so I came in to warm up.
This is the second full moon of the month, a somewhat unusual occurrence that has recently been called a Blue Moon although technically that is supposed to be the 13th moon of the year. I personally like the two full moons in a month definition. Now that it is into the culture it will be interesting to see what definition holds sway.
If I were in charge, which I’m not thankfully, I would redesign our calendar to follow the moon. Every month would start on the full moon and the the few extra days at the end of the year would be holiday. They are already with the period from Christmas to New Years. Occasionally we would just do a little hop and a skip to deal with difference between the solar year and the lunar month. This would make much more sense than the calendar we have now. So, what should we name the 13th month and what should we call the end year days? We’ll be celebrating the return of the Sun.
