Blue Moonshine ...

"Blue moon, blue moon, blue moon,
keep shining bright.
Blue moon, keep on shining bright,
You're gonna bring me back my baby tonight,
Blue moon, keep shining bright.

I said blue moon of Kentucky
keep on shining ..." 
                 ~ "Blue Moon of Kentucky"
             recorded by the great Elvis Presley
                                 ~ 1954

An artistic view of "Blue Moonshine" illuminating the summer sky over Cedar Creek Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania during the
Blue Moon of July 31, 2015.

A Blue Moon is defined as any time there is a second full moon in a calendar month, according to NASA. The next will occur January 2, 2018.

"Blue Moon of Kentucky" is the official Bluegrass song of Kentucky, written by Bill Monroe, "The Father of Bluegrass," in 1946.

The great Elvis Presley - an artist who occurs "once in a blue moon," - recorded
his fantastic rockabilly version in 1954.

Traces Of Time ...

"Let your life lightly dance on the edges of 
Time like dew on the tip of a leaf."
           ~ Rabindranath Tagore

Spending time this March in the charming, Victorian town of
Belvidere, New Jersey, located on the banks of
the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.

When Sunny Gets Blue ...

When I saw this little wildflower basking in the sun a few days ago on the Saucon Rail Trail, Hellertown, Pennsylvania, it brought to mind that great Nat King Cole song,  
"When Sunny Gets Blue."

"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul." ~ John Muir
