Yesterday was supposed to be the most depressing day of the year, also known as Blue Monday.
According to Wikipedia: "The concept was first published as part of a 2005 press release from holiday company Sky Travel, which claimed to have calculated the date using an equation." Blue Monday is the third Monday of January here in the northern hemisphere.
Well, people who know me know that I am not very good at math. Since yesterday was Music Moves Me, I am talking about Blue Monday on Tuesday.
For me, anyway, Blue Monday was not blue.
True, where I live in upstate New York, snow was on the ground, we had a harsh wind chill, and the weather forecast was...well, wintry. The break in the cold the Northeast United States experienced the weekend before last is a memory.
But, consider this. It was sunny, something that usually only comes with cold in our winters.
Yesterday, in our United States date notation, was 01/20/2020. When will that ever happen again?
Spouse and I had lunch with two cousins, as we were passing through where they live. It's nice to visit with family.
And, speaking of blue, note this sunset from last night.
This was taken during the "blue hour", a time after sunset but before darkness descends. The sky is still blue and you can see a pink cast looking east.
A perfect end.
