NYE NEW POP ART PARTY

As millions around the world celebrate today being the last latest day of the Most Ideal Sunrise Time of mistYmuse 20/21; the 5th of 5 days at 8.24 in Leeds; and something called New Year’s Eve; here’s yesterday’s news:

flying catapult kingdom
calls my mind on the wind
sunshine freedom
