The Ice Wolf of Europa

In order to boost creativity, I have started another new blog, Splodge and Splatter. It’s for my artistic side (otherwise known as my Inner Artist) to have a go at creating images to provide inspiration for posts for my normal blog; and for that blog also.
My first post over there features the legendary Europan Icewolf, which I will now reblog here.
Splodge and Splatter will only be updated intermittently, not as often as Beyond the Sphere (although at the moment that is actually saying something). I may also visit images created for past posts here, and re-do them over there.
As I say, it’s just for the creative process.

But here is The Icewolf of Europa…

Splodge and Splatter


Moon of Jupiter, home to an incredible pack of Ice Wolves.ย icewolves1They roam the Moon freelyโ€ฆ in fact, they roam the Solar System freely, so advanced they are. From their observatory hidden deeply within the vast Pwyll Crater on Europa they watch the comings and goings of the Universe with great interest.

Are they observers or are they planning or plotting something?

Being human, we tend to look at things from a defensive perspective, and would probably opt for the latter option. But the Ice Wolves? What of them? Why can they not just be silent observers, simply watching. And learning? Willing to share what they learn and their thoughts with us, and the rest of the populated Universe.

They can be mystical, magical creatures. They utilise the power of the stars and the Sun, both ours and theirs together, and draw from the strengthening Power of Light andโ€ฆ

    • Thanks, VK, I’ve had a listen.
      I don’t think all of the terms and conditions apply to us in the UK, as when I was upgrading to Windows 10 we had a shorter text file to agree to from the US version. What the article referred to is quite scary, but we can still switch off the options that we don’t require. I haven’t any of the intrusive options active, and apart from having to give myself permissions to create a new picture folder everything at present seems to be working OK for me. Obviously, though, I may have my head buried in the sand and I’m completely missing a lot of crazy things going on around me… but there’d be nothing new there.

    • I’ve had a multitude of blogs since 2010, Frank, but apart from this one the others have become somewhat inactive. By keeping Splodge and Splatter similar in my mind to the randomness of Beyond the Sphere, it may last a little longer… and I always wanted somewhere just for my ‘artistic’ side to develop. We shall see!


  1. OK I’ve read the new blog and added myself to it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Well done as ALWAYS Tom! ๐Ÿ™‚

    God Bless!



  2. Ooh most excellent Tom! I shall have to add a link to this one too so that the good people of WordPress world can discover the joys of it on here too! I’d like to pinch a pic and some text to add to my about me page if that’s okay. ..With link and full credit of course ๐Ÿ™‚ That page gets more views than any single post on my blog so you’ll get plenty of exposure!

    • You may use the post as you desire, Icewolf, and no need to credit either, for that matter. Although, I may do research into those Firewolves of Io you mention from time to time… if that’s OK with you… just to keep the peace. You know.

      • Thanks Tom โ˜บ And I certainly wouldn’t consider borrowing your post material without due credit ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Totally out of order!
        So you’re interested in my Firewolves ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿพ Brilliant! They’re wonderful creatures and I didn’t think anyone had given them a second thought ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have enough material sitting around my phones and my laptop and probably even my Kindle Fire to start a whole new blog in its own right ๐Ÿ˜€ But I didn’t think anyone was particularly interested in my Firewolves of Io which is a shame because they’re very beautiful and special โ˜บ I might be a touch biased though! So do feel free to research if you wish. .. They’re well worth it! ๐Ÿ™‚


        • OK then, Icewolf, I will. And I’m sure many people are interested in them.
          I’ll see what I can come across regarding them.
