Happy New Year from the Greenygrey World!

Hi, it’s Green.  Thanks for all your visits in 2011 and hope you have a great New Year celebration and 2012, returning to the Greenygrey world as much as possible!

I have a feeling that Grey will return in 2012, and it posted a blog from the Oztralian east coast yesterday (we have worked overtime to bring it into the Greenygrey world, and it is below).  It seems to be making good progress as the Werewolf of Oz and surely its quest cannot be far from concluding.

See you in 2012!!

Latest Werewolf of Oz:

We thanked the bees for the bungee to Bingie, and were about to leave, but then one introduced herself as Beatrice, before telling us not to buzz off straightaway, as they were having a bbq on the beach that night.

A bbq on Bingie beach with Beatrice and the bungeeing bees was too much to resist, so we quickly agreed in unison, and began to chill as the sun climbed to its midday peak.

Barry Joins Bee BBQ 

We’d filled our bellies and were enjoying a tinnie
or two with beeautiful company
when I thought I saw a familiar face out at sea
and then realised it was Kalbarri Barry.

I asked what he was doing all the way over the other side of the ocean, and he said he was just holidaying with the family.  I thought it was an amazing coincidence, but you know, these things do happen on the road.

Barry Suggests Shifty and Carry

Barry said they were setting off for Sydney the next day, and invited us along.  I hadn’t shape-shifted for a while, so I suggested that I change into a bottlenose and swim with Barry and his family; pulling the others behind us on a  makeshift raft.

They all agreed to the idea, and we constructed the raft after the bbq finished.

As the last embers of the fire lost their glow, we fitted the harness to the raft using the moonlight that silverlined across the ocean to our place on the sand.

Happy Holidays after 2011 Photo Highlights part 3

Hi, it’s Andy Wolfhol, with the third and last part of the 2011 Photo Highlights.  It will be the last post before the Solstice and Christmas, so best wishes for both, and any other celebrations you’re having, and we’ll see you when the evenings are getting lighter in the northern hemisphere; where you can now enjoy Venus emerging in the south-west sky just after sunset.

Now for some more greenygrey photos.  The numbers are increasing as you can see, and we don’t really want to leave any out, but there’s so many!    Sorry if we’ve missed out some of your favourites.  Enjoy:

Hi, it’s Andy Wolfhol, back with the second half of the Greenygrey 2011 photo highlights.  There were too many highlights to fit in two days, so we’ve decided to extend the weekend to include Monday.  But for now, who could forget these wonders of the 2011 Greenygrey world:

Photo Highlights of the Year in the Greenygrey World

Hi, it’s Andy Wolfhol.  It’s been another wonderful greenygrey year, and we thought we’d bring you some greenygrey photo highlights this weekend.

Here’s a greenygrey folding mirror effect, which is like hitting the jackpot for us, what with our sister site focusing on folding mirror poetry:

Here’s a greenygrey tree trunk amongst other greenygrey nature, with green leaves overhanging grey cliffs.

And here’s a grey cat, which also has green eyes, creating a nice greenygrey effect as it nestles amongst grass and plants:

Motley Crue Drum Solo and Home Sweet Home Videos

Hi, it’s Harry Silhouetteof-Wolfhowlingonthehill. We’ve uploaded the other two Motley Crue videos now and included them below. I was just reading the One Minute Astronomer newsletter about the Germinid meteor showers [First off, remember to look for the Geminid meteor shower over the next few nights. The shower peaks on December 13-14, but early reports of many bright meteors, despite the bright Moon, bode well for this year’s event.] and it reminded me that I saw a pretty good one after the concert. Here are the videos, enjoy!:

Surfing Poem Imagining Hollow Tube Refreshing Mind

Image via Wikipedia
Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem has a surfing focus, which is quite topical … but mostly for people living in the southern hemisphere, which is on the other side of the world to Marc!  But this is the home of Folding Mirror poetry, which thrives on turning things upside down!!
Marc has only surfed for a few hours, so this poem is mostly based on watching surfing documentaries and imagination.  Surfing terms, including green room being inside a hollow wave, were researched on the wiktionary surfing terms glossary.  Here’s the poem:

Surfing Sea Psyche

standing upright
crest of wave
paddling done
been waiting
biding time
for perfect swell
ride blue surf down
tubing a hollow, conversing with nature
inside the green room
worries wiped out
sea odyssey
water world
mind freed
of daily clutter
land refreshed
