Super Blue Blood Moon

Super Blue Blood Moon

I like bookends.  Beginnings and endings.  The Alpha and The Omega.  We all have them in our lives.  Intersecting with other areas, they are what makes life so unique and grand.  They can be painful and disastrous or full of hope and promise.  They can even be both at the same time.

I’m a symbolic guy by nature.  Just who I am.

This morning, there was a Super Blue Blood Moon.  Sounds ominous, but really it is just the second full moon of the month (called a Blue Moon) that happens to coincide with a lunar eclipse (called a Blood Moon) while also being closer to the earth (called a Super Moon).  The moon turned a freakish red color.  Those of us on the East Coast didn’t get to see it, but our counterparts on the West Coast did.

In the big picture, it wasn’t that long ago I wrote about the Super Moon in November of 2016.  Those who know me best know why today is a fascinating bookend to that article.  Call it coincidence, call it synchronicity… I just call it one of those odd moments in life.

Astronomical phenomena has always fascinated me.  We give such importance to what we do on this little planet.  Things like this remind me we are just a piece of dust on a piece of dust compared to the vastness of the universe.  There are people who have lived and died on this planet that no one will ever know anything about because their history was never recorded.  It doesn’t mean we shouldn’t live our life to the maximum.  We should!  There is a reason for everything.  I do believe that.

Just some rambling thoughts I wanted to get out today of all days.
