9-5 Workers Back to Two Twilight Times

The northern hemisphere sunrise is retreating back towards the early hours; now around an hour earlier at 7.30am than its GHOST (Golden Hour Of Sunrise Times) peak of 8.30am at midwinter.

While that could be bad news for people working the regular hours of 9-5 who don’t have to wake up that early, the good news is that the sunset has now passed the 5pm point, meaning they should be able to see it somewhere.

 

That is the mistYmuse news for today. There was a more amazing story from Silbury Hill about a PinkyOrangePurple (POP) twisting cloud that has baffled scientists on this site’s sister site, fmpoetry.wordpress.com, with the story breaking just after I wrote a blog post about the Warminster UFO extended experienced, ending around the time of my birth, after starting nine months before.

Have a safe evening in the northern hemisphere, day in the southern.

Sunrise, Moon and Venus b4 Y-day

The mistYmuse four months new-age paganism winter festival has now crossed the January 21st midway Y-day, leaving the MIST (Most Ideal Sunrise Times) and entered the MUSE (Midwinter Until Spring Equinox) months. I’m sorry if you missed leaving MIST, and there was quite a party over on this site’s fmpoetry sister site, starting with the new YSL advert on January 13th:

Sunrise POP (PinkyOrangePurple)

I featured some sunset photos on this site near the start of the mistYmuse, and here’s some sunrise ones, from early January, with Venus near the moon:

Space Travellers

As a video I featured on fmpoetry during the Y-day pre-party showed, we are all travellers through space, on our planet, and in our solar system:

Moreover, our brains are like miniature galaxies, as an article and simulation of a black hole forming on MSN made me think that’s how my mind is working while thinking of new concepts and connections while gYgPOPing.

My Y-day blogging was like a mini-break reminder of my epic classic XaW Files: Beyond Humanity 202 episodes; which is like my real life travel history, of big journeys followed by shorter holidays!

 

 

Back to Borgarnes Basics: Beyond U.F.O.

After my day on the Borgarfjordur beach has contained many photos of amazing natural beauty, and perhaps some bordering on the supernatural, although they are quite common in Iceland, due to it retaining its natural beauty, and being close to the top of the world, although only its small northern island of Grimsey is within the Arctic Circle.

Borgarnes Sunshine Photos

Iceland’s weather is not dissimilar to the U.K. most of the time, with both warmed by the Gulf Stream. There was also a cold spell in Blighty while I was farther north, which had travelled down from the Arctic. In fact, the coldest temperature I saw for Iceland was -9c, while after I returned I saw the UK had been -13c. There’s supposed to be another cold spell on its way this week, but this time travelling from the east.

Here’s some photos of Borgarnes looking back from the road south to Reykjavik, and the Borgarfjordur beach, including one I was trying to take when I took a selfie, and later discovered the photo contained a U.F.O. or four!:

The mountains to the north and east are partially visible in the above photos, and I also took more of them on their own, looking north and inland to the south-east:

I thought I’d say ‘bye ‘bye Borgarnes again today, but have seen some photos that I think you should see, proving that even in quite extreme conditions, enduring below freezing weather and little food that day, and the preceding few days, I was still inspired to let the artist in me out, and do some impromptu ice sculpturing. I think they deserve a post of their own, so it’s back to Borgarnes tomorrow!

Iceland Mountain Queen Surreal Photo Evidence?

Dedicated to the Grid and Walk-On Girls: always Formula 1 podium placers and Darts 180 bullseyes, and welcome at AAW (Adult Angelic Waifs).

I meant to write ‘bye ‘bye to Borgarnes in this blogpost, but looks like it’s turned into a goodbye Grid Girls instead!

I only became aware… (not a-were… that happened a long time ago…
and I’ve never looked back…
was looking for a pack…
until I found a greenYgrey rucksack!)… sorry for that mistYmuse poetic interlude, I was trying to write that I only found out about the Lady of the Mountain of Icelandic folklore this week.

lady of the mountain

I didn’t know about the Lady when I fell in love with Mount Hafnarfjall, between Reykjavik and Borgarnes, after spending the day with it; and was thinking that the reflective silhouette and wispy cloud shown in my photos could be interpreted as traditionally feminine features in a totally lovely way, complementing the hard as rock foundation, which is needed for all women apart from those who live sheltered lives – such as shown in The Grandmaster movie.

Maybe she was happy with me because I took a photo of her raven companion in the sunny glow of east Reykjavik, which I just noticed was the last photo before seeing what I think are Northern Lights ribbons near a rainbow:

I just read the info on the above linked Mount Hafnarfjall site, and saw that most of the mountain is basalt, but the crag, which I guess is the one I thought looked like a shark or cetacean’s dorsal fin, is made of granofyr, which has a bit of a greenYgrey resemblance ring to it (gr-n–yr)! Here’s a last collection of photos showing AAWsome Hafnarfjall:

Borgarnes Black Hole Sun Iceland Photos

Being an agnostic greenYgreyologist, I hopefully still have balance. For my writing and poetry I have to delve into the creative, which is the more mystical spiritual side of the agnostic, and probably the green of the greenYgrey. While I didn’t have any poetic inspiration in Iceland, focusing more on the image, watching a documentary about The Fall’s Mark E. Smith opened up the floodgates; after watching an old CBGBs The Dead Boys concert earlier in the week inspired my first Folding Mirror poem for a few years. I just wrote and posted the second on foldingmirrorpoetry. Today’s started off just as the introduction for my hour of creative inspiration, and I think there’ll be lots more from the rest.

The Black Hole Sun of the headline is taking artistic licence to reference the Soundgarden song, included in the Guns N’ Roses set for their current tour, since the suicide of Chris Cornell. The clouds are really dark grey, as in the greenYgrey landscape-weather original meaning.

The Sun Works in Mysterious Ways

If you spend a lot of time thinking about the sun, like I have over the last fifteen years, you can start to treat it as a living organism, as some people think it is, as Earth is Gaia: like a couple of flowers in the universal garden, or neurons in the universal mind.

After yesterday writing there was a nice sunrise because high pressure dominated, at 7.45am, 30-45 minutes before its midwinter peak, this morning at 8.30 the sun shone through a narrow band of clear sky in an otherwise dark grey cloudy sky, with spectacular crepuscular rays shining through.

The part of my brain that thinks the sun is alive and aware (a were?) interpreted it as the sun replying to yesterday’s blog post, putting me in my place, as if to say the pristine POP (PinkyOrangePurple) sunrise was its creation, not high pressure; that it can create beauty even in a cloudy sky, and that it can do it at any time of day!

North of Borgarnes Sun

On my second and last full day in Borgarnes I walked north, in the opposite direction to the day before. I probably would’ve taken the bus to Stykkisholmsbaer, but it didn’t run on Saturdays. I walked that way, before finding a path to the coast. The weather was kind to me again, with the sun in full view over coast and deep snow.

I was probably going to post these photos after some more from the Borgarfjordur beach, but this morning’s sky has put them top of the agenda:

I also met some lovely Iceland ponies:

Latest UFO News Complemented by Historic Astronaut Alien Accounts

In the current social media ‘fake news’ age the truth is ever harder to distinguish, and that’s why I think my parodymeter is a useful tool. I bet Silicon Valley wish they’d thought of it first; which scores very highly on the parodymeter. Elon Musk was too busy building electric cars and space rockets, and missed out on the techno invention of the century; which scores even higher on the parodymeter!!

Los Angeles U.F.O.

Funnily enough, a couple of my main topics from last year were linked in December, when a U.F.O. with a bright massive glowing tail was seen by many residents of L.A. and then explained as a rocket launch by Elon Musk’s SpaceX company.

I think that’s a credible account of what was seen, although I’d have thought there would have been more reporting of it prior to the event, both so people could watch, and to warn those driving etc; as there were reported to have been crashes caused by distracted drivers.

My U.F.O. Research is as a PhD Graduate

Although my third of a trilogy book had an X-Files theme it was more about comedy wordplay than spaceships and aliens. I don’t sensationalise U.F.O.s, and treat them with my PhD research trained scrutiny. I usually put strange shapes on other planets down to geology, and know there’s a lot of space junk out there now, but when astronauts and pilots report U.F.O.s I take notice.

I had largely lost interest in U.F.O.s when I wrote XaW Files, but the new Quest series this year with all the latest footage complemented by historic cases has reignited it. Of course, people with the Discovery channel might have been seeing this much more, with many series such as Ancient Aliens on the channel. 

Some U.F.O. theorists claim NASA hasn’t returned to the moon because there were alien spaceships there, supported by some astronaut testimony, such as Apollo 11’s Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin and Apollo 14’s Edgar Mitchell. I guess like with a lot of theories, time will answer that. If we do go back as apparently planned, and provide credible film footage, then it will disprove that theory.

I am most interested in U.F.O.s that travel at speeds and with movements beyond what humanity has currently revealed; travelling great sky distances in an instant, seeming to disappear and without leaving signs of movement; with a long history of such sightings going back to at least the 1940s, and some recently filmed. Footage released by the Peruvian air force and Chilean navy were two of the most recent encounters with crafts displaying extraordinary manoeuvrability. Their governments apparently have a more open policy about U.F.O.s than the U.K. and U.S.A.

I didn’t know the area I grew up in is a U.F.O. hotspot until seeing some books on Amazon about it a couple of years ago. I once saw a light in the sky on the western horizon, which looked like a star until moving fast, travelling north with erratic disappearing and appearing movements around that time. That was the height of my UFO experience, and the closest I’ve ever been; although I have had bouts of sleep paralysis, which some think explain many close encounters.

If there are U.F.O.s they seem to be quite friendly, as they are quite obviously more advanced if they can ‘study’ us without us knowing much about them; although there have been some reports of life being harmed. We of course harm other life on Earth, but the majority of us try to preserve what we can.

Maybe they are like us with other animals on Earth, studying and preserving us as we do with other life; and if there have been alien crashes, such as reported in Roswell in 1947, then it’s like one of our planes crashing into the sea, or a wildlife park. Maybe we to them are like fish seeing scuba divers or submarines passing their locality in the ocean, or undiscovered tribes seeing our planes flying over them.

For the most part we can just watch and wonder, but sometimes their higher technology will fail them, and they’ll crash into our world. That’s just a little theory though, and I keep an open mind.

I could write that I took my Nazca Lines photos from a UFO in 1994, but in reality it was just from the tower there, and I didn’t even take a flight over them. I was very interested though, but put them down to human construction rather than alien landing sites, as claimed in a best-selling book by von Daniken.

Happy New Year 2018: Y-Day Rebranded Y-Dawn

Warning: this blog post scores 50% on the all-new for 2018 parodymeter, meaning you have half a chance of taking it all too seriously.

Happy New Year 2018 to all greatolosolous greenYgreyliens and pluckylicious POPolutionaries. Here’s a great gYgPOP scene from the Stonehenge Tours website to wake the new year up:

Stonehenge gYgPOP

It is already more than a fortnight after Midwinter and just over a fortnight until Y-dawn (hot off the press rebranding from Y-day) on January 21st. Y-dawn is the most important date in the mistYmuse calendar, marking the end of the M.I.S.T (Midwinter Ideal Sunrise Times) period (November 21st to January 21st), and beginning of the M.U.S.E (Midwinter Until Spring Equniox) months (January 21st to March 21st).

While the Y did not bring precision balance to the greenYgrey (5-1-4 letters sequence), it did to the mistYmuse (4-1-4), which could be its creator; remembering the symmetry aimed for and achieved by the ancient Egyptians and Incas thousands of miles apart, and apparently without contact, featured previously in the animals and sun spirituality blog.

I know it won’t make a big difference to your life, but hopefully it provides a little extra support for the interested, to mentally and physically survive the four bleakest weather months in Blighty and the northern hemisphere.

As I know from my endurance running, and weights before it, it’s often good to divide training and goals into shorter periods, and I think the winter is similar. We already have many celebrations to pass the end of the year, but nothing much at the start of the year. Now, those who follow this blog do, if they so choose.

In line with my role as mistYmuse PoPPy (Perfect Pagan Prophet) prefect (with a certain amount of self-parody, about 50% on the parodymeter [another new self-proclaimed genius innovation] I’d say), I won’t be doing anything to celebrate Y-dawn, but please do have a good time without me!
