You saw me standing alone

blue moon

As you may have heard around in the news, tonight is a “blue moon,” a rare occurrence of the second full moon in one month. Steeped in legend, it’s gotta portend good things for 2010.

Driving home last night, the almost-full moon cast an eerie glow over the snowy plains of Colorado, making everything visible as if it was daylight. Tonight will be even brighter.

Happy blue moon, happy New Year’s everyone. Here’s to 2010.

PS: My friend is trying to convince me to do the Polar Bear Plunge tomorrow in Boulder. I’m considering it.


  • Oh, you gotta take the plunge, just to say you did it. I think I’m gonna do it here in Rochester in another couple of months. Happy new year!

  • Heather,

    Happy new year to you from France. I read your blog everyday, it’s always a pleasure but i don’t often leave comment because i’ve got difficulties to write in english.

    Perhaps will i try to be more courageous in 2010 and leave once in a while some comments.

    I did not know the meaning of “Blue Moon” and i’m happy to be less ignorant

    thanks and happy new year again

  • Blue Moon used to be a specialty ice cream from a now- gone local vendor.I miss it. But Happy New Year to you and yours and I see you did take the plunge! Congrats!

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
