Blue is used in a lot of music,

some of my fav blue songs:

Keith Urban sings :  Baby, blue ain't your color

Kenny Wayne Shepherd sings: Blue on black, tears on a river

Willie Nelson sings: Blue eyes cryin' in the rain

Elton John sings:  I guess that's why they call it the blues

Elvis Presley has his Blue Suede Shoes

Linda Ronstadt sings about the Blue bayou

Neil Diamond is Forever in Blue Jeans

the list goes on and on - it's a very popular theme!

And if you Google:  "Blue is the color of the sky and sea.

It is often associated with depth and stability.

It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence,

intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven.

Blue is considered beneficial to the mind and body.

It slows human metabolism and produces a calming effect."

I wonder if I should leave these blue stars on all night?

Star Gazing

I saw these pretty little lights

(on clearance for 75cents!)

and pulled them out today

as I was thinking

we all need to be reminded

to put life on pause

go outside in the dark and

look up

the stars are heavenly!

Be Strong

When you're hit with bad news all at once,

it can send a person reeling.  But I was reminded

the next day by an oldie but goodie on the radio:

"I get knocked down, but I get up again,

You're never gonna keep me down...."

After letting the news sink a bit, I came back to

my usual self.  I'm usually pretty level headed

and realistic about the circle of life,

how everything has a season.

Some day it will by the end of my season.

Until then, I'll just Be Strong!
