Tangerine Dream: Sunny Thoughts

This is probably only relevant to single people, without commitments; although it’s about mental escape rather than physical. It is also not about Blackpool F.C. or what might have been for Princess Kate’s Blackpool visit.

Diets and nights out
are just holiday escapes
quickly returning to norm
negative people and society
for real mental health
you have to leave altogether
in mind and spirit
if not in body
locking yourself away
with the real you
is better than being
someone demanded by others
just to feel half normal
in their image and
little bubble world.

Since I moved my mind to the sun I feel much better.
That’s not to say I don’t still care about Earth.
Just that it’s not as important.
Maybe you’re not ready to make that journey.
If you’re still full of joy and ambitions maybe you shouldn’t.
But maybe it’ll help in negative times even for everyone.

I’m not claiming this is new or original, it’s just my experiences written down, from a path forged by humanity over thousands of years… with my mind philosophy most recently updated by watching a documentary about shaolin monks… I’ll probably never reach their ‘enlightenment’ and definitely won’t achieve their physical agility!

In response to the expected Double Negative response, I don’t ‘fancy them’ and I’m not making out ‘I’m hard’!!

The Original Blog Post

I started listening to Tangerine Dream: Zeit before reading an article about sun storms. Then I wrote and I wrote… well not that much, just this while posting it on Facebook:

Sun is the One: I don’t claim any influence on it; expect any favours.
I do think that if it is sentient, it will appreciate me for that.
Liking it for what it is, rather than for what it can give me, above others.
I think it would understand those with real problems trying to contact it.
It cannot be expected to hear everybody though, while running the solar system.
As this article says, we should be grateful every day for its good management;
sending just enough heat our way overall.
It does its job, but is humanity as a whole, doing theirs;
if they are Earth’s caretakers, rather than executioners!

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.

gYgPOP World is Everywhere, Sun Shining Above Despair

Karl Lagerfeld worked at Fendi for as long as I did for Planet Earth.

Our paths crossed in the greenYgrey world.

a person in a green dress standing in front of a building: Yes, fashion month is still happening. The 27 day test of fashion endurance has made it’s way to Milan, Italy. While Milan boasts our favourite shows in terms of craftsmanship, the hidden gem of Milan is the street style. It's the prime example of what can happen when quality and charm work in synergy. This season New York’s street style was colourful and clever, while London’s was classic (and dare we say, quieter than previous seasons?). Here in Milan, the street style is streamlined with sharp tailoring while still maintaining it’s whimsical details. The leather trenches come in Skittles bright colours and the intarsia sweaters come printed in something that your grandma and Miuccia Prada would approve of.While some pieces are universal amongst the fashion crowd, the street style of Milan has inspired us to reconsider them in an oversaturated market. Not into plaid blazers? What about a blazer wrap dress hybrid in the cutest banana yellow. All khaki-d out? You'll want to rethink that come slide 8. Even after two weeks of doing the whole street-style-outfit-peacocking (on top of attending the shows) editors, influencers, show goers are still going strong in providing us with outfit inspiration that will extend far into 2019.See you at the fashion finish line in Paris. We’ll be there with a gold medal and granola bar in hand. For now, click through for the best street style from Milan Fashion Week.

We shared love, but not with each other.

Mine was with a mixed-up vole anagram.

All the images above are from this MSN article this morning.

Musical Coincidence?

While there’s lots of pagan rock on YouTube that relates to my writing, I thought this image from a suggested album captured the greenYgrey world evolution perfectly. The greenYgrey land linking to a PinkyOrangePurple sky through a human – perfect gYgPOP.

Moreover, it was released in 2015, the year I first espoused the new POP art. I did that in January, so think I was first!? Was the album cover influenced by the gYgPOP world, or was it a universal mind ‘coincidence’? Probably the latter, both with the same influences.

I don’t remember the psychedelic 60s, but they say you absorb a lot in the first few years of your life, so it probably did have some influence.

When we got a television in the early 1970s it was certainly there then, from the American Banana Splits to British Goodies.

Muse Meteor Message? Did Space Rock Open Earth to Univeral Mind?

After declaring my last poem written and posted on this site a fortnight ago a bit of a muse-inspired stream of consciousness moment of inspired clarity, including the lines:

brain freeflowing
open to cosmos
like puddle to cloud
ocean and rain

and writing about UFOs/space a lot lately, I thought it was a coincidence when I saw a news story about a meteor streaking across the USA before landing in Vinales, Cuba – cover star location for the second of the greenYgrey trilogy: Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps.

Meteor Day Before

Although I’m pretty sure I saw the meteor story after writing the poem, it happened the day before.

Thankfully, nobody was killed, or I wouldn’t bother writing about it, as I know some people will blame me, with a ‘kill the messenger’ philosophy – pagan (environmental) ones anyway!

Open to Space

While I don’t think there’s any connection really, my ‘romantic’ side thinks the meteor could have broken a hole in the Earth’s protective atmosphere the day before, opening the world up to space, and the universal mind – muse, with some of it landing in my brain, inspiring the poem?

It’s a possibility, although my rational side says it’s just a coincidence.

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.

Silbury Hill Mystery Cloud Matches POP (PinkyOrangePurple) Descript/Fash-ion

Posted the day after I wrote about the 1964/65 UFO experiences there that coincided with my birth a mysterious POP (PinkyOrangePurple) cloud mystery in Warminster area made the media, and I saw it today on MSN.

The mysterious twisting cloud is also set against a classic POP panorama.

Was it military training, somebody having a laugh, a natural coincidence, or a totally POP UFO (Unidentified – although it should really be a UC – Unidentified Cloud?).

The truth is out there, and they also reference X-Files in the video!

 

NASA’s Unexplained Files on Quest

I’ve still got an open mind about UFOs: there are thousands of sightings, and some seem very convincing. I could document them all, but I’m playing catch-up myself, mostly watching old documentaries with even older cases. I intended including more today, but this case has taken up a lot of time, and I’m sure will be enough for you, as there’s so much out there… and remembering the X-Files, some of it may be true!

NASA’s Unexplained Files

Having seen most of the first and third series of NASA’s Unexplained Files, I’m now watching series 2 (2015), as it’s back on Quest in the UK on Friday nights. My favourite case in episode 1 was the X15 rocket plane test flight to the edge of space over fifty years ago, with pilot Robert White witnessing small ‘UFOs’ about the size of a sheet of paper – after first seeing particles.

He didn’t say they were alien lifeforms or anything, just there was something there unknown to him. If space is like an ocean, and we are like one small island or rock pool, then the things White and others saw on the test flights could be like seaweed or plants on our planet. While meteors are hard enough to make it through our atmosphere, maybe what White saw can’t, because they are too organic/flimsy?

There are some videos on YouTube about it, such as this one:

While it was very exciting for me to see it, on YouTube it’s followed by lots of comments from believers and sceptics, which in my mental world sums up the greenYgreyness of the issue!

China Moon Landing

While NASA is criticised for apparently hiding video of the UFOs, and other times when they’ve cut transmission during ‘UFO sightings’, unfortunately that’s the world we live in.

While NASA censors its transmissions somewhat, and I think has a slight delay on live film, China didn’t provide any ‘live’ footage of its recent unmanned landing on the dark side of the moon.

So, if the ‘West’ hadn’t been at the forefront of the space race we probably wouldn’t have hardly any ideas or footage about UFOs in space, or all the theories and conspiracies!?

My XaW Files: Beyond Humanity pushed myself to search within the mind as much as I could, while learning more about exterior events, looking for coincidences/experiences, creating a fantasy fiction storyline around it with lots of parody comedy through my dear ol’ greenYgrey protagonist.
