Blue Moon Chime

$ 200.00

Full color Dharma Wheel artist's print

Available framed or unframed


I heard chimes in the night air when I completed this Dharma wheel. It happened, on that particular evening, that a second full moon – a blue moon -- filled the night sky. Thus the name.

However, several months later, when explaining the etymology to a learned friend, she asked for the specific date of that moon. I gladly provided the information. Minutes later, after quick research, she made my mistake evident. No blue moon had occurred.

My reaction, for her, was confusing. I was happier with the name, having made the mistake, than I ever could have been without the mistake. Intent, perception, ignorance and chance came together to inspire the perfect eponym. 

It just feels right.

Looking back, I don’t know where the chimes were hanging – none hang close to my studio. Perhaps more perplexing is the fact that I heard the chimes on a humid, very still August night; the kind where a whisper carries more wind than the entire sky.
