Thanks to Willow Croft for arranging and conducting an eco interview with me. Great to reminisce about environment, travelling and writing with someone I feel is on the same wavelength on those topics; and dredge up some memories of writers and creations that influenced me, from somewhere in my memory!
Free ebook to download of peak pagan poetry and philosophy book from this website, before the creative juices dried, and the desire to create structured poetry declined; resulting in the slow and sublime entropy of the last decade (and third poetry collection), and the literary nonsense prose poetry of XaW Files: Beyond Humanity. Then there were the snippets of Facebook colourful background poems, and now, just a big empty void.

Free to download in July for 10th anniversary: a book with an eco message showing the nice side of wolves to counter the historic demonising, with a Wizard of Oz fantasy theme mixed with the factual forced migration of British children around the Commonwealth for a century, which had recently been told in the book/film Oranges and Sunshine.
Book summary blurb on Smashwords:
Rebel without a cause, werewolf without claws, Grey travels across all regions of Oz (Australia) in a comedy-fantasy parody of the Wizard of Oz.
It is not witches that hunt the protagonist for a ruby slipper, but monotheists desperate to get their hands on an emerald cork hat. There’s no scarecrow, tin man and cowardly lion searching for brain, heart and courage; instead, we have Elle McPherson, Angry Anderson and Bon Scott inspired characters needing a body, mind and spirit confidence boost.
Will Grey and the intrepid travellers elude their pursuers and reach their destination? This book provides amazing action and surreal comedy in poetry and prose before reaching a cohesive and thrilling ending.

Negotiating with my mega Hollywood agent; recommended by H&M, no less; I said: ‘without me there would be no more comedy!’.
He turned around to me and shouted, ‘Without me there would be no co-me-dy at all!!’
I said, ‘Okay Cody, pipe down!!!’
Co-me-dy, get it!?
The above was an example of a shenel; my wordplay, as well as parody comedy.
Home is where the
heart is human isn’t!
After telling readers they should only buy the print book if they really want to read it; due to paper/wood concerns; I again turn normal publicity on its head by declaring my new book not as good as its predecessor, the very excellent 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections.
While that was filled with optimism this is more dystopian; the end of my use of the Folding Mirror form; but contains a few classic poems and they look nice in their Folding Mirror shapes. They have all been published on this website over the last decade, in line with the freedom of information ethos I’ve worked with.
I also kept the prices at their minimums allowed by Amazon and free on Prime; and you can take out a free month’s trial.
Thanks to everybody who has contributed to the poetry and this site over the last 15 or so years. The reason then was to try to make a difference, and that song’s still the same. I was a realist then, and thought I was only slowing down our decline rather than saving us; and recent events have shown how powerless we are; but I’m less inclined now to feel despair!
Yesterday’s ‘Reclaim Rainbow’ post was an example of my free speech first attitude, whether it’s Charlie Hebdo in Europe or South Park in the USA. When I was growing up, it was a left-wing socialist thing: the hippies in California and the existential thinkers in France.
Now, it seems to be the left and LGBT who are the most virulent opponents of free speech, calling everything ‘racist’ or ‘homophobic’; and new ones like ‘Islamophobic’ and ‘transphobic’.
It may sound facetious (that word was more appropriate than I thought when I checked it!), but I’m still a big fan of beautiful lesbians/bi-women; and think they’re more likely to be better off with a woman!
And I’m tolerant of all other LGBT. There’s a lot of bad stuff goes on amongst them, but there is among the hetero too. I think a nice loving gay couple is better than a horrible predator hetero.
But it seems to be going over the top now, and the ‘rainbow’ is everywhere; and only for them! And then they support some of the worst races, countries and regions for LGBT over ‘white Europe, USA, West’ etc, which have the best records and statistics; HOW TO ARGUE WITH ANTI-WHITE RACISTS 10 | mistYmuse (wordpress.com)

After I re-re-adapted the goldilocks story space had used for habitable planets to romance on my greenYgrey blog I recently saw Phil Wang use it on the 8 OUT OF 10 CATS! comedy panel show (repeat from January this year, available on Channel 4 in the UK).
Had he heard of it from me, either directly or indirectly; or is it just a coincidence?
Missing Link greenYgrey Missing Link?
Seeing my joke on TV reminded me of thinking the Missing Link movie had a lot of greenYgrey’s rambles similarities: with it being a sasquatch rather than werewolf!
It also started in British Columbia (on Blogspot) and had a searching for self-knowledge across the world theme, with the greenYgrey total amnesia, and Link for family. It also seems to have a class and anti-hunting theme (I haven’t seen it), as the greenYgrey did at the time; before Meghan Markle arrived and complicated everything, making me value tradition and stability much more!
Although it was American made (by Laika) the writer and many actors were British: the kind of people in line with my green left side, such as Walliams, Fry and Lucas!
I also found an eerie coincidence when I looked up Laika, as they also made Corpse Bride; and I said that’s what Meghan Markle (her portrayed ‘vulnerable victim’ image) reminded me of when she got married to Harry on my travel25years blog; only in February last year! Seems a lot longer!!
The writer, Chris Butler, says he grew up on such stories though, and the greenYgrey was similarly a combination of old themes, so it’s probably all a coincidence!
Sunflowers know the sun provides them with life.
They seem to have had an educa-sun (education).
Will you be rising early to see the summer solstice, and following it across the sky during the day, like a sunflower does before opening?
I won’t! Maybe it’s because I’ve flowered and so stopped, as sunflowers do?
Heliotropism on Wikipedia.
This is comedy mixed with information, a British custom that’s been under attack by Multicultural Fascism for over two decades (parodying an article I saw on the BBC a while ago about how to argue with racists!):
European Colonialism – while I don’t like the bad stuff that happened, especially as a sun-worshipping ‘pagan’ myself – Europe had been attacked before the ‘great voyages of discovery’ 500 years ago:
by Mongols from the east 800 years ago
by Arabs after Koran written 1300 years ago
So Europe was just doing what the rest of humanity has always done: travelled and warred.
