still-sound 100. Blue Moon
Tonight there will be a blue moon. All this means is that it's the second full moon in a calendar month. I wished that it meant that the moon, for one night, glowed blue.
I will celebrate this event, something that only occurs once in a blue moon, by lighting a stick of Fu In Kyara incense by Minorien. The little kiri wood box bearing a deep teal blue label is beautiful. The sticks sleep in a bed of soft, lacy paper. The first time I burnt this incense I thought it smelled like patchouli. I suppose I still do. But there's so much more. It's very earthy and damp and woodsy. It's not what I expect from a kyara stick. It's less sweet and a little spicy. I think it's the appropriate scent for a blue moon.
