ADHD Writer Creates Philosophical Poem While Researching Sun

Altering everything to all
allows enough space
for two suns: sunallsun.

Commented on

I had been searching more on our axial tilt (obliquity) and why it affects our temperatures much more than the Earth’s elliptical – oval rather than round – orbit; it’s because its not as oval as it sometimes looks in images. Good ol’ time and date website gave best explanations in the end!

TimeandDate website.

It included this great image showing clearly the tilt and distance:

Confusingly, it has the Earth on different sides of the sun in this other image, but I guess it doesn’t matter, as the sun doesn’t have north and south poles!?

Alien Origin – Shenel Document Revealed

Shenel – proposal for the naming of a word containing others within its two outer letters.
The name derives from combining (blending or portmanteau) the first three letters of shell and last three of kernel, as in nut. The beginning also, inadvertently on my conscious part, connotates femininity through the pronoun she; that retrospectively made me think the shenel words also resemble a pregnant female carrying a smaller entity. Introspectively, apologies to females if you think I should have thought about you before nuts!
As with most nuts and pregnancies, there is usually one within the outer, but sometimes there are twins, or more. Also, as there are classic shaped nuts, or wonky ones, the shenel can be a classic, such as a kernel word filling all the letters between the shell’s outer ones, or an imperfect one, like the wonky range of fruit and vegetables now featured in supermarkets.
I later researched my concise dictionary, like the PhD graduate I am, and found hundreds of examples.

Is it worth proceeding further? Are you interested in more shenels?

Lie within Believe Great Example of Shenel

To be-lie-ve agnostically
is always to remember
most likely current option
could be proved wrong
sometime in the future.

Believe is a good example of a perfect (same number of letters each side of inside word) shenel (word with another inside, like a nut’s shell and kernel I invented, without naming it after myself) with related words on outside and inside.

Sunrise Sunset Times Seasons Insight

Over a month has now passed since my December 23rd post looking at where in the solar system we are on our planet Earth. Then, Earth looked at the top of the ‘clock face’. Now we’ve travelled around to 11 o’ clock, as we’re going anti-clockwise:

If Earth’s axis was more like a carousel swung from the sun the north would always be pointed in and the south out, as heads are inside and legs out, so north would always be in summer and the south in winter, but it is more like a toffee apple on a rigid stick, staying in the same position as it orbits the sun, meaning the south is pointed towards the sun on one side, and the north on the other:

Sunrise and Sunset Times

As we reach the end of January, sunrise has now dropped below the 8am mark in Leeds, mistYmuse (#mYm2020) central. It was at 07.55 this morning, according to the Time and Date website. Nearly half an hour earlier than the latest sunrise of the winter at 08.24, which included December 31st.

Likewise, in the other direction, sunset has stretched the light 50 minutes later, from 15.54 to 16.44. So that’s about an extra hour and twenty minutes of light a day.

The horizon cloud gap was back this morning and the light looked a glowing yellow in the gap, as if the colour was compressed below the cloud. Again, I don’t know if that’s an optical illusion!?

Tree-Hugging Sun Photos, UFO-Shaped Light Haloes

greenYgrey fans can probably see gYg,
especially in the sky earth symbiology,
sunlight and photosynthesising tree,
original returned or baby or three,
or trick of the light photo technology?

The outer ring seems to be PinkyOrangePurple (well pinky anyway!) in the first too, for new POP age fans, fitting in with the POP following on from the greenYgrey core gYgPOP evolution!

Moonday Poem for Pagans

Grilled tomato smoke
wafted greyer than air
as sunlight broke
through window to evoke
before Venus rose
a female soprano voice
emitted from the TV
triggering thought energy
in my brain synergy
the power of three…

to be remembered
half the day later
after seeing Venus
now bright in night
clear as day, as they did say
above new crescent moon.

27 Jan. The Moon returns to the evening sky and appears just 6o from brilliant Venus in the west after sunset. Today, the planet Neptune is less than 0.25 degrees north of Venus. If you have a telescope, try to see these two worlds in a single field of view. As January ends, Venus rises nearly 3.5 hours after the Sun and reaches well above the western horizon at sunset. Other than the Moon or Sun, it’s the brightest thing in the sky.
