February still exists here in the PNW for a few more hours so this post is still valid! The month of February is truly my favorite month, it will be sad to see it leave. Outside the wind is sending the poplar voices into a cacophony as the limbs are whipped to and fro. Was anticipating March was popping in like a lion, but the next few days show sunshine and warmer temps. Thus, Feb is the one leaving like a lion. Probably a snow leopard. Not much is left. Little Bear’s rabbit sculpture has about a mom sized foot print left in a tiny pile and there is a larger pile out on the street. Had about an inch dropped yesterday, Snow Moon. So, reckon it is apt!!
Passing on the loving of this month during the ensuing ones will be a bit more difficult since the holidays are different and there are no birthday’s or anniversaries (especially in March). Yet, it is still February and to celebrate the last day, PURPLE!!!!!!! In the photo of me (took one on my birthday at the start of Feb, so one at the end, too!!) , you can’t see the rocks dangling from my ears, Also have some rose quartz hearts I’ve not worn yet, but well, amethyst!! Also purchased some snowflakes. They are interesting. Definitely lower box store quality, a tad larger than my ears, but fun costume baubles with sparkles!
Also found a purple quote without a source. When the source was found, it made me sad and changed the entire tone of the quote. Or so I thought. The first quote was this, ‘you touched me and I became a lilac sky.’ The entire quote is this, “You were red, and you liked me because I was blue, but you touched me and I became a lilac sky, and you decided purple just wasn’t for you.” Those are by a musician poet, Halsey. Crediting sources is always important. So many get them wrong….
“I like to write with a lot of emotion and a lot of power. Sometimes I overdo it; sometimes my prose is a little bit too purple, and I know that.” HG Bissinger. Rather adore purple prose!!!!!!!
From Jimi Hendrix’s song ‘Purple Haze’ are these words, “Purple haze all in my eyes, don’t know if it is day or night, You got me blowin’, blowin’ my mind. Is it tomorrow or just the end of time?” Not sure if it is the end of time, but I figure one should go for magic, no matter where you might be!!! And purple!
