October’s first full moon is the harvest moon on October 1,
and the second full moon will occur on October 31.
While the moon won’t actually look blue, the second full moon in one month
is usually referred to as a blue moon. This happens every 2.5 to three years,
or “once in a blue moon.”

The Blues

“The fundamental form in all of American music —
that’s what the blues is. It’s in every folk song,
The sound of the banjo and the sound of the guitar.
It’s in the sound of ragtime, it’s  in the sound of
John Philip Sousa’s marches. It’s hard to get the 
blues out of your sound. Blues is also call and
response, which is democratic form. It generally
has lyrics that described something tragic or sad.
But many times it reverses that and gives you
something that’s hopeful.”

— Wynton Marsalis (NY Times, June 28, 2020)

Sometimes happiness is a blessing,
but generally, it is a conquest.
Each day’s magic moment
helps us to change and sends us off
in search of our dreams.
