Queen gYgPOPs Inaugural mistYmuse to Close

The four darkest months of winter have passed in the northern hemisphere, and the spring equinox has passed us into having more light than dark, as the Earth’s axis means our planet’s tilt is pointing the north towards the sun on its approximately 365 days journey around our star, as marked by our calendar.

Queen’s Buckingham Palace Garden 

After I spent yesterday writing a lot about my writing on my travel25years site I felt honoured to see the Queen has been celebrating in her garden, with lots of gYgPOPing (greenYgreyPinkyOrangePurple-ing) going on.

With the mist of mistYmuse aimed at 9-5 workers (referring to the 08.30 sunrise times in midwinter) I was also delighted to see the American Queen, Dolly Parton, visit Blighty during the winter light festival to open the 9to5 musical in London.

That’s after ABBA reformed after my XaW Files: Beyond Humanity declared a new age of ABBA while meeting the members as they travelled through Sweden.

mYmories

Some of my mYmories from my blog post yesterday on t25y: I hope the mistYmuse helped those who suffer from SAD (Seasonally Affective Disorder) in the most challenging four months of the year, and entertained everybody.

The weather has been pretty average overall, a mild winter here, but as I’ve stated before, it’s about light rather than weather anyway. Our light is predictable, whereas weather fluctuates. This has been proved true over the last month.

It seemed love was in the air in romantic Valentine February, as the sun shone bright and temperatures rose much higher than normal, creating records, but then March saw a return to wintry weather. Thankfully, sun and warmer weather have now returned.

Not a-muse-d

I would’ve liked to end on a poem, but the muse has gone now! Maybe I will too, until the muse is scheduled to return again for the next mistYmuse on November 21st… no, I didn’t get the call from Dolly to appear in the musical! Hamilton neither !!

I did allow myself to become embroiled in a Media Studies controversy this morning again. Sorry for that, as a white Doctor of Philosopher specialising in the media!

Gemma Chan: ‘‘Why are actors of colour, who have fewer opportunities anyway, only allowed to play their own race?’

Didn’t Amber Rudd get castigated by Diane Abbott and the media for using ‘colour’ recently?

What I wrote on Facebook:

Double standards again. Uses comparison with John Wayne playing Genghis Khan, but there’s been 50 years of media studies complaining about that since, and the ‘whitewashing’ furore of the last decade.
Moreover, many people, including me when young, get their ‘history’ from fiction, so will be misled! At least John Wayne tried to look Mongolian for Khan!

Eight Months Research Break

I’ve still got my books though… mine and my muse’s anyway! If anybody’s got any brilliant work for the best Doctor of Philosophy in Britain and perhaps the world, please get in contact here, at Facebook, LinkedIn or at greenygrey@googlemail.com

Or just read my books, and give them great reviews, and upload your favourite quotes etc to brainyquotes etc. I have done my bit, reaching for our star, and am now retiring my mind to it, until being brought back to Earth by the mistYmuse of 2019/20… maybe see you then…

Poetry in Motion Princess Kate Remembers What Made Her Great

I was disappointed Princess Kate seemed to have become a Calamity Kate recently, buying a shotgun as Britain goes weapons crazy!

See the source image

Kate Returns to Form

So I was delighted to see Princess Kate return to great greenYgrey form on a visit to Blackpool recently (maybe tangerine would have been more fitting though?), sporting big green and grey, and a little yellow in the arrow symbol of her handbag and the umbrella handle.

So I wrote this Folding Mirror poem to celebrate, adapting it from a spontaneous poem that seeped down effortlessly from the unconscious, and that is included below the FM one.

 Swapping Shotgun for Umbrella, Remembering gYg Princess Era

Princess Kate taking up shooting
was like a poisoned ↑
through my greenYgrey wolf ♥.
Seeing  symbol on handbag
like Y in disguise
deflated, like crushed umbrella.

is T a good umbrella symbol, between windy Y and deflated ↑

Thankfully, brolly she’s holding
in stormy Blackpool photo
sheltered her from rain.
One day when sunny again
Kate will consider birdsong celebrations
more important than dinner conversations.

The original poem posted on Facebook.

Princess Kate taking up shooting
was like a poisoned arrow
through my greenYgrey heart
but seeing the symbol on her handbag
I see it’s just like a Y in disguise
deflated like a storm-broken umbrella.

Thankfully, the brolly she’s holding
in the stormy Blackpool photo
sheltered her from the rain
and one day when the sun shines
Kate will consider birdsong celebrations
more important than dinner conversations.

Stella Of Silbury, Sending Out Space: SOS… x2… Voulez-Vous… Knowing Me Knowing You?

Having seen the Silbury Hill mystery POP (PinkyOrangePurple) cloud that looked like rocket smoke yesterday, and then finding this StellaDrone epic space music today, some (neurons in my mind, like the Numskulls of comic fame, and Inside Out characters of movie stardom) are wondering if it was Stella Lagerwolf-Bruno of the greenYgrey world (inspired by Stella McCartney, Karl Lagerfeld and Sacha Baron-Cohen’s Bruno character) who’d POPed in to visit Silbury.

Poetry On Site Updated

I just updated the poetry on this site list, taking it up to 312. I’ve written and posted seventy-one Folding Mirror poems since self-publishing my 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections (121 each) second poetry and philosophy collection in 2012… at the cheapest price possible.

If I hadn’t written it I’d be wanting it for Winter Solstice Christmas!:

BBC Ignores POPolution, Colour Blinded by Tradition!

When I saw the BBC covering this week’s great sunsets I hoped they’d caught up with the POPolution, and were seeing twilight colours without the blinkers of old hat proverbs.

Deep red skies

However, they kept on calling the sunsets ‘red’, when they were nothing of the sort! This photo is probably the closest to red of the featured ones, but is really a deep combination POP…

Red skies

… some are bright pink…

pink skies

Red sunset

… or even more yellow!…

Orange skies

Sky looks nice

I’m just glad to see these great photos really, but if you wish, POPolutionaries, please complain to the BBC in a light-hearted way, asking them to see things as they are, rather than through dogmatic cultural brainwashing!

Red skies

The BBC have also ignored XaW Files: Beyond Humanity, where the new POP art developed out of the travel quest for the greenYgrey world’s Andy Warhol, Andy Wolfhol:

One Morning’s Century of Thought

I have a confession. I have been brewing coffilosophy in other kitchens of thought, in this great mansion of social media, within the community of www. Then this morning a story about a space mission that will take forty years compounded my thoughts on time being the best teacher. If that mission is a success, then the people who are around then, and know its results, will know much more about our existence than the deepest searching thinkers of today and the past.

Doors of Perception: Time is the Top Teacher (T3)

People like Aldous Huxley, who inspired The Doors band name. I’m just playing their 1968 L.A. concert on YouTube. When The Doors and other 1960s counter-culture bands were doing most of their searching, humanity hadn’t landed on the moon yet, with that taking place in 1969; if you believe NASA and the astronauts.

So when you think of all the knowledge we’ve acquired about space, and our existence within it, in the last fifty years; such as icy moons around Jupiter and Saturn that provide a good chance of life, if we can get probes there, with missions planned in the next decade; then we’ve gone some way to answering some of the questions Jim Morrison was wondering about, and searching for through mental searching, sometimes involving stimulants.

Neuroscience has answered many others, with brain scanning particularly helpful.

Of course mental searching can provide insight into yourself, and clues as to the rest of humanity, if you believe we are all alike in some ways.

I could’ve written a Folding Mirror poem about it, but think/know I’ve written some similar ones before, both our time in the present between past and future, and the advances in astronomy and neuroscience mirroring each other.

In line with the trend of abbreviating and imaging everything, I did think seeing around a century of thought could be reduced to the image:  See the source imagevia the acronym: ICT.
