Can a blackbird sing the blues?

When I was younger, I was always kind of appalled that older people talked about the weather – it just seemed so mundane. But now , with these last few warm days before the rainy season – well, I just wouldn't believe the stillness and serenity if I wasn't here (even if it's it's not a unicorn in the garden).

Blues, blues, blues:

Cobalt (and others) on Invisible Paris

Ultramarine on l'astronave

Cerulean on Random Shots

Indigo on Celeste Bergin

Conversations about the weather are appalling, but this isn't.

I love the moon in the eye. Being able to read the weather is a sign of having observed nature and understanding some patterns. i used to be embarrassed by the Britishness of discussing the weather, blande conversation for those lacking in imagination, but now, if the weather being discussed is observational instead of evasive, I find it intriguing.

Jasmine - "observational instead of evasive" - that is one for the keepsake box.

Dennis thinks the weather is like God. it's everywhere.

Fall, the prerequisite for the inevitable Winter.

What a beautiful, clear sky. Everything deserves to gaze upon it, even marker-manifested blackbirds.

AJ - enjoying the comments...now, about that novel...

Celeste Bergin said...

the weather is good here! Hooray! It is often rainy. Talking about weather is fun. I love your bird...thanks for the shout out there in the blues. That was entertaining...and you're so clever!

Even Birds Get The Blues I Guess?

"With a high heart, because there was a unicorn in his garden..."

That's the magic of getting older, if you know what I mean...

Egypt comes to my mind - the left eye of Horus is associated to the moon. There is a whole interesting story about the falcon god, but one has to google it.

Love your posts - always making me wonder.

The weather/climate we live in shapes who we are to some degree I think. Those last few days before the season changes are so bittersweet...

Those links are yummo. Thanks much, Susan.

what a perfect moon eye

i heard scientists discovered a new blue recently, who'd of thunk it possible

the fact that weather is ever changing does make it a constant in our consciousness and conversations
