I’m having a think. Well, I’m having more than one to be honest. I’m always thinking about something or other.
I’m still thinking about those lines that I saw last night which travelled by the Moon. The black and white perfectly straight lines that went on forever. Well, to the horizon (and presumably beyond). It appears that I wasn’t the only person to notice them. I looked at my dashboard earlier, and quite a few folks have been directed to my blog with search engine terms like ‘what are the lines on the Moon?’. At least the search engines were working correctly, and gave them what they were looking for – although I’m sure it was the answer, and not someone else asking the very same question! I’m still going with Ley Lines, but I haven’t had any confirmation from any of my contacts in the scientific community. As soon as I hear anything, I’ll purser the results here.
I’m also thinking about the sky in another way too. Before the Sun had fully set on Friday night, the sky was green. A green sky! One thing I never imagined I would see is the sky a shade of green. That’s another item to get ticked on my imaginary to-do list (this list seems to be constantly getting longer, which in itself is strange as it doesn’t exist. I love paradoxes). A green sky isn’t that unusual though, to be honest. Have a look at these photos that I have discovered on the internet:
OK, I know that these are images of the fabulous Northern Lights, from Iceland, Canada or Norway or the north of Scotland, but they are generally green, making the sky look green. And my sky the other night was more like the colour in the first photo (the lighter shade of green). One day I will see these lights for myself. Plus I have another reason to visit Iceland!
I’m having more thoughts about the year 1642. I’ve not posted about my quest for a while, and as such it seems to be more on my mind than usual. I’ll just add a quick update as to what I have discovered. Rembrandt van Rijn completed his painting ‘Night Watch’ in 1642. As I’m currently thinking about the night sky, it seems very apt to mention it here, although the painting itself has nothing whatsoever to do with the sky. But this means that Rembrandt has now been added to my cast of characters – erm, historical people – who were around at that time. Still no connections with me as yet, but I will keep on delving.
My challenge is still in my thoughts as well. My challenge to include a variety of subjects within my posts each day seems to be going well so far. This is day two after all, and I have managed to do it up to now! Go me! Only I haven’t included a creature in this post as yet. There literally is only one creature I can mention that will fit in with the sky, the colour green and the Moon – none other than the mystical Moon Dragon itself. Here is a picture I discovered on the web:
And yes, I know that his wings look blue in the picture. That is an optical illusion caused by the light of the Moon shining through them. And, maybe the black and white lines weren’t Ley Lines after all – maybe they were Dragon Trails? They tend to fly in pairs. Hmmm. Something more to ponder there!
My thoughts do tend to wander around somewhat, don’t they? Kind of in the same area, but still all over the place. It’s a good thing that I started this blog to clear some of the thoughts from my mind. But that space is then refilled with even more random thoughts. It is hardly surprising that I tend to forget things.
Carrots! I’ve forgotten to include a fruit or vegetable in this post. I’ll have to do better next time. There is always room for improvement.
