To do something “once in a blue moon” is to do it very rarely: “The phrase refers to the appearance of a second full moon within a calendar month, which actually happens about every thirty-two months.
Why did this thought come to mind when I thought of Valentine?
For one, on Valentine’s Day the whole town/world is painted RED! So why did Blue appear in my focus?
Every day, people say ‘I love you’ in different ways and through different media. Some are subtle, while others are in-your-face-love; bottom-line, people are in love or so they claim. Hence, I don’t get it when a day is set aside to celebrate love and disorient our sense of colour choice with one predominant colour. By the way, I love RED! wink
Love, I keep saying is an everyday affair. It’s like blood pumped to the heart, you don’t want to experience what will happen if that blood stops flowing at the correct pace, or if air ceases to flow from one valve into the next (or all those places air flow through). So whose bright idea was it to limit love to one day? Who thought it right to limit love in the first place? Who determines how the day should go and by mid-night, we are back to the cat-fight-mode-activated fully.
Well, this is me wondering again and still thinking out aloud. If you have something to say, pray, let’s hear. Till then, either you enjoy your “once in a Blue Moon” love day or do it the God-way.
With every breath I take, I love you daily and eternally, babes. ❤
