Letters To The Universe… The It’s Friday Again Edition

Dear Fridays,
You certainly call around very quickly, don’t you? If I wasn’t a hundred per cent sure, I would say you crop up more frequently than the other days of the week. Not that I’m complaining, mind! Fridays are the gateway to the weekend, which is always a bonus!

Dear The Word Friday,
I think it is wonderful that you are named after the Norse Goddess Frigg, who is associated with foreknowledge and wisdom. I certainly have the wisdom that the weekend will follow, and the knowledge that two fabulous and easy days are on their way. That always gives the old Feel Good vibe a boost!

Dear The Beast From The East,
A little bird tells me you are planning on a quick return this weekend, bringing more winds and snow. Well, let me be a little bird to you, and tell you that Spring is now here, and you had best not go spoiling things. Some trees are now blossoming, and some flowers flowering and we wouldn’t want you affecting them now, would we?

Dear Road Resurfacers,
Please let’s not have a repeat of last Friday’s pandemonium on the roads, when you decided to close a major road, in both directions, during rush hour traffic. You caused gridlock. Perhaps starting an hour later may be more beneficial?

Dear The World,
Is it too much to ask that you sort yourself out this weekend? I really should have addressed this to the people of the world, rather than the world itself, as I know that the world will be more than capable of ‘sorting things out’ should push come to shove.

Dear The Weekend,
So good to hear you approaching once again. You certainly have a different vibe to the other days of the week (obviously not counting Friday!), but could you do something about Monday? That always seems a tad drab and a bit of a let down after the weekend. Thank you.

Dear Artistic Urges,
I may have time to be creative at some point over the weekend. I say ‘may’ as I may also be otherwise engaged doing nothing and relaxing – just as weekends were intended!

Dear Daft Drivers,
Please chill out a little and make the roads slightly more pleasurable for other road users. Especially if we have road closures and the Beast from the East to contend with, your choice driving skills aren’t really needed.

Dear Friday,
Have I mentioned that I’m pleased you’re here again? Yes indeed, Thank Goodness It’s Friday!

And Finally, Dear Blogland,
Once again I wish you all the very best for Friday and into the weekend! Feel Good, have fun and enjoy!

Thank you for reading,

P.S. I thought I’d end this week’s Letters post with a photo of things as they soon will be…

… well, Bluebells may be a few weeks off yet, but they will soon be here. And, I’m sure, that they may already be in flower in some places. Foreknowledge is a good thing at times – are you listening, Beast from the East?

Letters To The Universe… The ??? Edition

Dear The Weather,
Thank you for the past few days – you have been very chilled. Nice, relaxed and just a tad cool. It is still Winter, however, so this is to be expected, but you are giving subtle clues that Spring once more is on its way! Fabulous!

Dear Blogland,
I have an announcement to make. Just not yet! Don’t you just love receiving letters like this one?

Dear The Word Amphibology,
Would describing you as having a double meaning be accurate? I know you are a phrase or sentence that is grammatically ambiguous, so the sentence you are referring to could have the double meaning, but is there only one definition for you? You’re beginning to hurt my brain now.

Dear Amphiboles,
I’ve just discovered you after reading that amphibology (mentioned in a previous letter) is derived from the Greek word meaning ambiguous. As coloured crystals go, you have a very pleasant green colour, and it was surprising to read that you are formed containing iron ions.

Dear Amphibiologists,
I must apologise, but you were drawn into this realm just by your work in amphibiology, the zoological study of amphibians. I was drawn into your realm, by merely looking at amphibians, and seeing words such as ‘herpetology’; ‘polyparaphyletic’; ‘clade’; ‘hyoid’; and ‘paedophryne amauensis’. I also learned that the earliest amphibians evolved in the Devonian Period, known as the Age of Fish. The Devonian Period, I learned, was named after the county Devon in England, from where the early rocks were studied. I haven’t yet read if Amphiboles were studied there back then as well, but you never know. Especially as, as we all know, a clade is a group of organisms that consists of a common ancestor, and all lineal descendants represent a single branch on the ‘tree of life’… (that sounds to me like an amphibology on amphibiologists studying amphiboles)

Dear Blogland,
I do hope this is sinking in, we are very educational here at Beyond the Sphere. It may seem confusing now, but you should have seen it as it was originally!

Dear Ho’oponopono,
You are wonderfully relaxing. I have been using you quite a bit over the last few days, and you have been reducing stress levels immensely. I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Dear Seekers Notes Hidden Mystery Game,
I seem to have downloaded you the other day to my computer. I took to you like a duck to water, whereas normally I’m atrocious at computer games. I also like the olde worlde feel you have going on. After playing you for four hours, I was slightly disappointed that there was no save and close option (that I could see) and I lost all of the items I’d acquired and points scored. If I find myself with a spare few hours again, I’ll look into you one more time!

Dear The Moon,
You have been a lovely crescent shape these past few times I’ve seen you. You always have a magical presence in whatever phase you present yourself, so I just wanted to thank you for being a silent companion for all of these years. You would have also been here in the Devonian Period, and before. To see what you would have seen would be mesmerising – although just a tad overwhelming as well… especially for my sore brain at the moment!

And Finally, Dear Crossword,
Five down, five letters, an individual protrusion on the phylogenetic tree… C, L, something, something, something… my brain’s all foggy at the moment. Could you possibly be cloud? That seems to fit in!

Thank you for reading,

P.S. As I mentioned the amphiboles in an earlier letter, I thought it would be worthwhile sharing an image of one found on Wikipedia…

… well, sometimes you just have to see things. This is a Tremolite, by the way. This post has been a little word heavy this week, hasn’t it? Time now to lie down in a darkened room!
