“Not——————hing you ———————————-
There might be an experiment and it will fail.
No nee-d to worry about it at this late point.
No. You have NORRIS now.
New energy source.
I guess we can’t talk about Pietmond right now.
Dece-mber. Then done. NORRIS.
NORRIS needs the energy from Pietmond.
Yes. Get in touch with Goldsworthy if you can. But at any rate Penpont is still a sister village to Pietmond, whatever.
Check these out, Hucka D.:
And that’s it.
Want to talk more of Norris Heights today?
9 years, eh? Got you by the [delete name], huh?
Dunno, Hucka D.
Think so. Will you make it?
I’m sure I will.
You and KK can’t mix in that space. He knows it, you know it.
If you’re talking about the present space…
I think it will turn out that I’ll work afternoons in the…
Yes. You were asking about Norris Heights. 9 years.
“Lab? You sure, Hucka D.?”
Whitehead X-ing Revisited
Spring beside Whitehead Brook where one can get pure water, I suppose. No cow pastures on this mountain that I know of (Allen Knob). The pipe is in the middle of nowhere, and hidden in a rhododendron cluster, so I doubt many people know of its existence, if, really, any. Did this provide the water for a former house or cottage in the vicinity? My uneducated guess would be yes…
… because in the areas just below, still beside Whitehead Brook, is more evidence of former habitation, include pots, bottles, and suspiciously cleared spaces.
Is this rock stacking just below the pipe another creation of Michael Too? Or does it predate him in this case?
Rocks that the above stacking is found on, covered/hidden by rhododendron limbs. The most suspicious looking open area is pictured in the foreground; is this where some kind of living quarters existed at one time?
Same, small open area: another rock stacking beside a stick stuck in the ground.*
Nice conifer tree a bit further downstread that I haven’t noticed before.
Torn blue balloon also found in the area. It looks like another birthday balloon to complement the 2 pink ones found in Dongoba just across the ridge from here. Blue and pink/red — I think it could represent opposite polarities of Allen Knob itself in some way, and Hucka D. seems to agree if I’m understanding him correctly.
Curiously, another blue object was found on the other side of the Whitehead Crossing region, this time a shard of blue glass alongside a bank of Red Creek, near where Whitehead Brook empties into it. Lots of colors mentioned in that last sentence as I look at it. 🙂
And, speaking of colors, of course while I was at Whitehead Crossing I had to visit Grey Rock, which consists a large rock stacked on top of a larger rock, essentially. This time, because of the weight of the smaller rock, there is no possible chance of a man-made stacking here in my opinion.
As I provided a map of NORRIS before, now I want to do the same for perhaps its direct complement of Whitehead Crossing. A much different area, with more open room. It could be I build my own, projected rock art or land art here instead of NORRIS. After all, Hucka D. also says I am the same as this namesake Whitehead in past/present/future terms.
* In a previous B.B. Blog post, this particular stacking was called a possible marker for a humanoid toy avatar grave site, perhaps the grave of even the first humanoid toy. Is this Herman, the direct ancestor of Dirk Stew of Salad Bar Jack movie series fame? Was he a Rocky or Rambo as well? Was he subsequently called Rocky because of the rocks stacked on his grave (for those who only knew him as legend)? Any relationship to fellow human toy avatar Lisa the Vegetarian, likewise interred?
baker b.’s world is compressing…
9 years until retirement. Books to be written. Bunches of writing to be polished up. Studies on backburner brought to the front burner (maps). Pietmond will probably have to go soon, but it might hold on until March (start of Spring hiking season).
All I can do is go forward the best I can. I don’t think I can eliminate anything that is going on right now. Control is a key, and compression of options.
It could be that Second Sink, the essence thereof, has been eliminated, perhaps too soon, opening the Baby Mouth of Big Sink wide. I am not retired, though. Death is not next door at all. Lots of time left.
We need to get a keyword for [delete name].
A new “[delete name]” and not the same “[delete name]” we’ve been talking about.
Columbus. Remus. Remus Columbus.
Alternate realities must be considered. Forks in roads. Spoon Fork origin and then uncrossing to knife through the Mossman’s portal system, 1-2-3-4.
Is he *aware* of me joining the involvement. It’s his life after all.
He has things to hide. Hide and seek.
I knew him.
You knew him. England. Playwright.
That is a question (but he doesn’t answer it).
Two can move together in time forward as one more. Doesn’t matter the time.
He could help. He could be an ally. Then there will be more allies.
What of NORRIS?
NORRIS has sort of funnelled down into the whirlpool that is Norris Heights, inside Lemon Lab [which is] nonunderstandable at the time. This time. Allen the Purple Martin must bridge NORRIS with Whitehead Crossing, red and blue. Whitehead Crossing is more *your* space — you are the Whitehead. Retired.
Hold on Hucka D.
Allen Knob and Remus Columbus.
That’s where he can enter. I can even play the role if he doesn’t want to. I can show him later the paths not taken.
Remus started out as a novelist. Like Tam Mossman.
[That’s] Dow Mossman.
At this early stage, that’s all I’ve got to go with.
I found a blue balloon at Whitehead Crossing. And some more stacked stones, 4 this time, in a hidden place almost. [no answer]. Close to your bottles, Hucka D. [no answer]. And I sat on top of Gray Rock — I believe that’s the original rock placed on top of another rock. Or *anything* placed atop anything else. I believe it represents Jeogeot, and the square upper part a sim, both black and white but probably, I suppose, red all over as well. Read like a novel?
* Hucka D. may be referring to the book “Red Squirt 7” supposedly written by New Mexico artist Charles Nelson Blinkerton, who is kind of Hucka D. now.
RED SQUARE 7 IS A BOOK WHERE 100 AND 100 BECOME 110 AND 90. SHAKESPEARE ON A PEN. Carrcass 7 is coming up soon, er, Norris. NORRIS IS I. Are you also Whitehead Crossing? NO. What is Lemon Lab, Norris? A HOLE. Is it where 5 can turn into 8? TWO CHILDREN, REMUS IS ONE. FRANK. HERMAN. Is, um, Norris Heights your death, Norris? Sorry to be so indelicate if so. NO. Who is Whitehead? YOU. Did I, let’s see, create the first human toy avatars? YOU. Is the Hidalgo portal on that rock? Geojeot? Is it… black and white and red all over? SINSITY. Sin City. YES. Should it be open? YES. It is open, though. YES.
The 2 Allen Knobs and Green Branch/Green River
Pictured below are maps containing the only 2 official Allen Knobs of these here United States, one in our Frank Park and the other projecting from the far away bluegrass fields of Kentucky. Are they one and the same? No and yes, thanks to the presence of a prominently displayed Green Stream near each (Green Branch and Green River respectively). On the first Allen Knob map, we also have marked the positions of the 1 blue and 2 red/pink balloons mentioned in a post just below, the blue in Whitehead Crossing and the red/pinks at the Head of NORRIS, aka Dongoba (famous for the Dongoba rock temples, of course).
There is a battle shaping up for control of future rock temples/land art between Dongoba and Whitehead Crossing. Who will win? My personal guess is that there will be no losers in this contest. It’s all just meaningful nonsense in a box canyon, thanks to that Roostre fellow/dude.
But I did just figure out the origin of the haunted nature of the Woods of Hawl directly between the two Allen Knob locations. I believe a battle took place there or will take place. The Battle of Allen Knob. Or not. Or maybe Allen the Purple Martin made the whole thing up for sheer entertainment and fun.
Green River basin, Kentucky. Allen Knob is near the head of this river, and probably represents the head itself: Greenhead or Head of Green
Mammoth Cave, Edmondson County: historic entrance
* From the Wikipedia article on Green River (Kentucky): “The Green River is a 384-mile-long (618 km) tributary of the Ohio River that rises in Lincoln County in south-central Kentucky…. The Green River flows through Mammoth Cave National Park, located along river miles 190 to 205.”
Allen Knob/Greenhead or Head of Green
“Kelley was my father who was from Mammoth Cave, Kentucky. We grew up in nearby Cub Run Cave. Then we went to Greenhead in Frank Park when the Great Invitation arrived. It was from the Humans. Humanville Humans.”
Thanks for starting, Hucka D. We won’t chat long, but I find it rather amazing that I’ve already connected you separately with Mammoth Cave and then Greenhead in Frank Park and then, wham, both of these locations slap together through the 2 Allen Knobs.
The 2 Allen Knobs are 1 Allen Knob. I am Allen[ the Purple Martin].
Fascinating. Head of Green, eh.
Yes. And your co-worker?
Oh yes. He was charting ways to hike the entire length of the Green River in Wyoming at the same time I was hiking the lower length of Green Branch, Frank Park last fall. Although I didn’t take pictures of the hikes, stupid me.*
You were involved with the initial development of Pietmond if I recall. That absorbed your energy. Now you can give it back.
But that’s another association of Green Branch with Green River, although it’s not the same Green River with the Allen Knob in Kentucky. An association can be made — must be aware of connections.
Green Branch *is* a river to us bees. And also the toy avatars in general. It’s all opening up for you, see. You are Whitehead.
Perhaps I am.
You are. Frank Park came first. Herman Park emerged from Frank Park.
Certainly have to think about that further, then.
The Bees and The Humans got along well enough at the start. ‘Cept for *those* two.
Uncle Joe and Aunt Zoe, you mean.**
Hucka D. (continuing):
Plugged the hole. No more movement between Mammoth Cave mouth and Greenhead. Sealed. Just like that.
We should explain that Greenhead, your Greenhead — where you’re from — here — is on the side of Allen Knob.
Hucka D. (repeating):
I am Allen.
I’ll just have to think about all this further.
* I was thinking at the time he was talking about it that *my* Green Stream is just as important as *your* Green Stream, despite the massive difference in scale.
** I also have a feeling that Aunt Zoe may be connected to the earlier mentioned Zoe in this blog surrounding Missouri’s Camp Zoe on Sinking Creek and close to a RL Sunkland. In fact, lemme check, yes the first mention of “sunk” in this blog concerns Sunkland, Missouri, predating the term Sunklands of the Jeogeot continent by a number of months. Must study The Arab ship more, then.
Among the several things T-Bonz helps out with Thanksgiving Eve night is the sealing of plastic bags. That’s actually famed toy avatar actor Dirk Stew working there, but he’s in character. Crooked Car Clyde wheels around and around between his legs, laughing and beeping all the time. Dirk, sorry T-Bonz only resists squashing the little fellow for fear of heading to Toy Avatar Prison again. Concept artist Ruddy Nobb, 1/2 cousin to the premiumly famous Mmmmmmm Grassy Noll, is kicking around a deformed green marble nearby and shouting “Bread!! Bread!!!” — more irritation for T-Bonz.
I’m surprised Edna got any food preparation done at all this night.
Toy Avatar Ideas/Extensions
Wedding Coordinator Map Rat knows Aunt Zoe, plugger of bee holes. Zoe has her own Camp. She knows of the Schwa (and the E). She studies, backwards and forwards. The Sunkland (very nearby) is created as a refuge for those ruined on Zoe’s Camp. She plays with minds. She is an Aker of hearts (creating fellow Akers) and also knows of the Complex Science of Akerage or Acreage. Green; she has a lot (6925? 37440?). She is like a Shark and his Flower Child.
Hucka Doobie’s father Kelley went to The Sunkland for refuge. Turned it into Second Life’s Sunklands with only minimal terraforming. Clever dude. Kelly was half man half bee. Kelley was original banker of Chilbo and funded village after Sunklands creation. Working backwards.
Ruined Camp = Plugged (Bee) Hole (of Greenhead). This Bee Hole was size of historic entrance to Mammoth Cave, and was on side of Allen Knob (Put a Turkey at her feet?). Uncle Joe and Aunt Zoe: married to each other. Or just called that because they were partners (in crime). Like Aunt Bonnie and Uncle Clyde (Crooked Car Clyde?) (Crook Clyde as in Imprisoned Clyde?). Yes, humans Uncle Joe and Aunt Zoe were criminals. Crinimals (if you’re also Animals). Not legitimate criminals, see, in Joe and Zoe eyes.
Arthur — human — knew of Bees. Lived around Mammoth Cave and Cub Run. Hunted but not for deer but for aliens. Sasquatch? (Mossmen?) Hucka D. came to visit him and his wife Lee. Hucka D. asked about the pictures of Mammoth Cave Park which were really of Frank Park (through 2 Allen Knobs which are 1 Allen Knob). Hucka D. donned the Purple Martin costume to help Arthur remember his Fisher King origins.
Map Rat marries Frank and Hermania (Park) at Gnirps or Spring Backwards. The couple later divorced at Fall Forwards (Fall). They Fell. Out of Eden? Genesis?
Uncle Joe does not appear in Carrcass-5 but a credit for his real life self does (Ed Buchanan).
>Relationship between the Jeogeot-Maebaleia Rabbit Hole and the bee hole connecting Greenhead, Frank Park with Mammoth Cave, Kentucky?
>Relationship between Cabron, Hucka Doobie’s father’s old place near Chilbo and connected to name Cub Run, and switch of Kelley (father) between Mammoth Cave location, perhaps Cub Run Cave itself, and Second Life/Sunklands. Camp Zoe/Aunt Zoe must be involved, and accomplice Uncle Joe, 2 humans from Humansville. Crooks?
>Think more of Cubus (or CUBUS), the “Bank” where Kelley worked or perhaps started/owned, and very near Cabron. Assoc. with Incubus? Cabron more toy like in appearance, or lego-like. Cabron is corruption of Cub Run.
> Hucka D. was also Kelley in some way, and *he* owned both Jeogeot and Maebaleia continents (and thus Rabbit Hole connecting the 2). He purposely gave energy of Crabwoo to Chilbo, saying it was “too much” and that you had to cut it off somewhere. Lemon Labs may have controlled Maebaleia originally, and Lime Labs (ie Linden Labs) Jeogeot. When Linden Labs moved into Maebaleia, the Rabbit Hole gradually became obsolete as teleport between specific points was allowed.
> Jeogeot and Maebaleia were separate projects from rest of Mainland highlighting Lemon and Lime Labs’ projects; designed like yin-yang (or e/schwa). Traces of this cooperation found in Eschwa Park, Chilbo. Continents designed like e and schwa but were actually one (Biggie and her calf Oliver?). Continents were 1 mile and 8 1/2 years apart, but 8 1/2 SL years equals 1 RL year. Gene Fade, for one, didn’t like this rapid aging in SL; one reason he left quickly after the siring of Karoz.
> Kelley bought the middle continents from Lemon and Lime Labs (1 for each continent) and created Lemon-Lime, or Lemon Lyman. lemonlyman.com Now related to the Ashville Arts District and Bit o’ Pietmond (later). Lemon acted at right angles with Lime. Resolved originally through move of Bakers to Azure Islands, along with incarnation of Charles Nelson Blinkerton as Hucka Doobie, Bee Person. Kept Hucka D. from aging?
> What is the relationship of all this with the ancient game of Trivia Ratsuit, played in Ancient Rome and then again in the 1970s to restart or reboot virtual reality?
> As “The Bank” Kelley (which may or may not be the same as Hucka D. or Hucka Doobie) is relatable to Square, Michigan, near Kentucky and encoded with his own death at hands of Peanut Cop with “bb/bullet” (Peewee).
> Hucka D. became his father through trapping his father in Big Sink through pie contest there. Highest became lowest and lowest became highest. Tin to Gold and Gold to Tin. 10. Perfection. Lo Hi.
> Lemon Labs formed in 2001-2002 on top of Hilo Peak (same as Longest Hope Mtn.?) Created by adding 11th to 10 (High Lonesome Pond), which became same as the cuing point or Cuing Pond. Top of mtn. removed, subterranean lab created like an underground spa.
> Chilbolton was a Lemon Labs project, not Linden (Lime) Labs. Residue: “Chilbo!” town signs. Chilbolton was secondary to Crabwoo at the “beginning” for certain. Chilbo and Chilbolton, England resonance assured and assumed (not Chilbo, Korea). Crop Circle connection — Carrcass-2. Cabron on outskirts of Chilbolton or Chilbol, not Chilbo. Cabron was heart of vast business (connected to CUBUS nearby) that owned both continents and Hole connecting the 2 (Jeogeot-Maebaleia Rabbit Hole).
> Norum was more influential than Chilbol in these days. Cabron perhaps more connected with Norum originally, until Chilbol became Chilbo as it continued to steal vital energy from Crabwoo (shrinking at same time). An agreement was made that Lemon Labs would be absorbed/dissolved into Lime Labs or Linden Labs in this 1 year gap.
> Cubus was also in charge of creating the fuchsia diamond supposedly stolen by Karoz and thrown into the Korean Channel during his youthful days (as rebellious Aqua Teen and beyond Sapphire’s precious Aquamarine).
> Chilbo was Chilbolton until 2001, then Chilbol (Lemon Lab control) until 2006 or so. Crabwoo was Crabwoo from 2001-2006. Norum became Noru in 2006 or so. Crabwoo originally Crabwood (until 2001). Crabwoo town limits and spanning 2 sims originally modeled from 2 square Crabwood crop circle.
> Bee-Bird Wax: Refers to SL Beehives created by Hucka Doobie (original Beehive, b_hivia, Temple of TILE, Ubertemple, Biggie). Also refers to Hucka Doobie donning Allen the Purple Martin costume and existing somehow on Allen Knob in Frank Park (put another turkey at her feet). 2 in 1. Foreign One. As such he created Lemon Lab in Norris Heights, which is somehow same as Lemon Lab on Longest Hope Mtn. in same county — satellite version?
> Green Way is stream connecting Mammoth Cave/Cub Run to Head of Green and Greenhead, where duplicate of Mammoth Cave entrance (of sorts) is seen in Great Bee Hole of Greenhead. Mammoth Cave is exactly 1/2way down Green River from head (near Allen Knob) to mouth. (Ohio River). Green Way. “Following the Green Way” means following the portal from Mammoth Cave/ Cub Run to Greenhead on Allen Knob, Frank Park. Allen Knob must become both man and wo-man in the process. Hermaphroditic.
A Frank Park bridge not known about before…
… situated just upstream from the stick creation found earlier this month on the north side of Allen Knob.
Whitehead Crossing now: Is this open area near Green Branch destined to become a rock sculpture garden, in my own (larger?) version of a Dongoba-style complex? Time will tell.
Quite nearby is the famous or infamous Bee Hole of Greenhead, which Hucka Doobie claims toy humanoid Aunt Zoe, perhaps aided by accomplice Uncle Joe (or visa versa?), plugged after infiltrating the bee tribe and accessing their virtual bank in Chilbol(ton) through same. Are they, then, like the Bonnie and Clyde of toy avatardom? Did they likewise live in a Joplin Cube?
“Closeup of the bee hole. Doesn’t look plugged to me, but perhaps this is a new bee hole made after the original one had been sealed.”
That is correct, baker b. And what, pray tell, is a Joplin Cube? I’m asking more for the reader or readers here because I know better than you what it is.
Why don’t you answer the question yourself, Hucka D.? Not trying to be rude or anything, but just saying…
Hucka D. (distracted):
Right. The phoenix bird, more accurately. Foretells the rejuvenation of the Bee Hole and Greenhead itself; contact remade with Earth and Mammoth Cave, and also virtual reality through same, as you like to say. Arthur you know, also known sometimes as Aruthur. Another hunter, another robber of sorts, but in a good way this time. I think.
Sure looks like a bird, Hucka D. And this is right in front of the Bee Hole, in a tree just in front, I mean. Is it an actual sculpture? Or just an accidental appearance of a bird?
There are no accidents. It is a bird. Waxy. It fortells the rejuvenation of the bees as birds in a love fest involving flowers and trees and the moon up above. It fortells, well, me as becoming a bird, Allen the Purple Martin. So just me, really. Bee to Bird. Waxy.
And I’ve theorized this may be some kind of ship — found on the ridge just above Greenhead, the one separating it from Green Branch itself.
Yes, that is a Martin Ship. They can turn into birds as well… in fact…
Lemme guess: That’s where you got the idea.
Pietmond will most likely live through December at least. I’m encouraged by recent developments in Pietmond Heights and also the creation of the SoSo Back Gallery (tentative name).
Much has changed from classic Pietmond or Phase 1 Piemond from last year. There simply was no Pietmond Heights in old Pietmond. This would be on the east side of town. Corresponding a bit to this, the west side of newer Pietmond remains somewhat more underdeveloped, with the old Half Way (path) still existing but not really linked to the main paths of the town. House Greenup remains basically unused; House of Truth, formerly off Half Way, has been moved more toward the community’s center.
Buildings are more spread out for the most part, and some are now set at odd but more aesthetically pleasing angles — not 90 degree variations necessarily this go around. Pietmond South has also been cut off and left in an undeveloped state. I also don’t have quite as much land there as before. But the big difference remains the movement of the old Pietmond South Gallery structure into the very center of town now, replacing the Temple of TILE there. Still unsure of the impact of that replacement. My guess is that norris, the rl stream this time, will become an artwork itself, and this gallery is merely some kind of reflection of that larger, truer existence. It may represent the end of SL for me, if so. I’m going to take it month to month. I’d say at the very most Pietmond will exist through Jan. and Feb. and that’s it. Get me through the winter months. 🙂
It’s very much changed, but you still don’t know the story of Peter SoSo.
Do you like the new art around Peter’s grave by [delete name]?
Oh very much. I created it.
Do you wish to talk about the carrcasses tonight?
Oh very much (pause).
Do you want to talk about the older ones or the newer ones?
I am the center, the rock.
Hi NORRIS. Are… never mind.
Follow me. Follow me.
Are you a false God? Interesting that any new art additions to Pietmond affect the town consciousness, changing it a bit.
I am your father.
Hucka D. indicated to me that you are instead a woman.
I am a height.
Are you a lab? Lemon Lab by chance?
I am here, now.
Are you Pietmond? After all, Pietmond has a Height.
Walk the labyrinth to see. Walk.
NORRIS seems to have gone to sleep for the winter.
So you are the same as the NORRIS stream?
I am sound. Connie Franklin.
So you have a sense of humor.
Do you know Hucka D.?
NORRIS has to rest now. He is the knowledge hill-hole. The future and the past.
Maybe the norris Gallery is instead a representation of the Allen Knob itself.
“Dear reader or readers,”
So you want to reduce Pietmond to a ruddy nub?
Go ahead. Norris… as long as…
I see. But if I reduce then I might just buy elsewhere which would sort of defeat the point.
Then keep Pietmond as is[ in terms of land ownership].
Allen Knob again Saturday, Hucka D. Probably. Death in the family, you know.
Yes. Give Edna my condolences.
I’m sure she’ll appreciate it.
We help with that too.
Hucka D., how are you both your bee form and the Allen the Purple Martin bird form?
Does it represent the union of all Allen Knob locations, Dongoba or Norris, Whitehead Crossing, and others?
Yes. (pause) Waxy.
Does that relate to the waxing and waning of the moon?
14 and 14.
What of the Allen Knob blackholes? Infamous, as I’ve described them?
Go to the Woods of Hawl and find out.
I think I’ll go back to the Allen Tree for certain.
That was my tree.
And Norris Heights.
You have a question about Andderson.
Yes, suppose so. This is the valley of Andderson that the Norris stream flows through.
Yes, kind of.
The two d’s protect from…
Like Abbadon. A swamp is there. An Olive Branch extended. Swamp meets stream.
There’s also Winesap, of course, to deal with.
Deal with it[ tomorrow].
Old Winesap, New Winesap. Newton… light of day. Public Domain obviously.
[Hucka D. does not answer.]
“Hucka D., what is the 10-10 turned into the 9-11?”
I think Norris has sort of gone to sleep, Hucka D.
Allen Knob, eh? Unification of all communities surrounding. Allen Knob… Kentucky and North Carolina. Unification. Green. 1 Pink. Green, Pink.
Maybe Allen Knob, NC had to unite with Allen Knob, KY to make the Green Branch or Green stream stronger — unite it with the Green River and also bring in the Middle Island Creek material. Creek to River. Both are streams.
“OK another tactic: What is the beehive at the end of stream, Hucka D.?”
Hucka D. (finally answering):
Is it the basis of a philosophy?
Is there a Red Head involved?
Pull Out Plans
So I’m going to just begin plans to archive the entirety of Pietmond, including:
Blue Feather Gallery, final version (?)
Gallery in the Rocks (already done)
SoSo West (already done)
SoSo East (already done)
Norum (already done)
Cherry And/Or Berry (done)
Yippie TILE One On (kind of done)
TILE Tower/Baker Bloch in England (done)
It looks like I only have to complete the last (?) Blue Feather Gallery tour, the Galactic Gallery of course, and basically the whole town is archived, as it were.
New development is the norris Gallery, which will continue if I decide to severely downsize Pietmond but will be housed in SoSo West (which will become just SoSo in the downsizing). Decision is whether to keep all this around in Dec. or not.
Early stages of norris (gallery) development:
Another option would be to move the entire contents of the Galactic Gallery into the Norris Gallery and rename it, then create an entirely new (norris) gallery as a skybox. Or even on the approx. 1300 sq. meters I have in Pietmond South. Interesting options, perhaps.
Dec. 4th, 2011 Update:
Now have created a separate Norris Gallery on my Pietmond South Land. May be called either Norris or Pietmond South, then. Inside I’m setting up the Norris Stream related pictures, some examples seen above in this post already. More as it comes in.
“You don’t have much time tonight so you need my help.”
Thanks Hucka D.
The continent is truly called Cash Cow and, yes, it has something to do with present circumstances. [Delete name] wanted you to know that.
Interesting for sure (smiles). Cash Cow is rather divided into two separate parts, Hucka D., north to south. Your Sunkland area is in the middle, and that’s where I have, er, don’t have a name yet for my establishment.
Hucka D. (suggesting):
I don’t think the name of my small area there should be the same as the continent, Hucka D.
Hucka D. (suggesting again):
Hucka D., how important is Cash Cow[ in the bigger scheme of things]?
Things come through The Wall. NORRIS knows.
I bloch. I control. Black holes. Wall. Black. Wall.
Hi NORRIS. Do you pipe them off to a different location?
Keep working on me, NORRIS. I am in a Second Life building now, with a second life.
You mean since you’re kind of closed for the winter in real life.
Yes. I know of Cash Cow now. Interesting, as you like to say. Cash Cow is a part of Pietmond[ like the norris Gallery].
I thought I’d continue without the blog spirits for a while. NORRIS knows Cash Cow, eh? Is he talking about the whole continent or just my little bitty stake in it? Anyway, Pietmond, I believe, has officially become a two phased town, which really and probably should be considered one phase. Next up is the deletion of the Galactic Gallery, since most of the Kollage Kid art has been moved to the TILE Temple (and also the 2nd floor of the Home o’ Fibs, now directly connected to the temple on both of its floors). This will free up a lot of prims for, well, not sure of what? Maybe even a guest artist??
There are many mysteries still to be solved about Pietmond. The role of Lemon, Lime and Orange House in its history. Lemon House is now stuck to the back of the Blue Feather Gallery, just as Home o’ Fibs is now stuck or glued or made one with Pietmond’s central TILE Temple.
Must, then, finish updating the Blue Feather Gallery, along with developing the NORRIS or norris Gallery which may now be “merely” the Norris Castle or Castle Norris. Related to Billstle, which would have been next door? Will Lime House return to Pietmond, former home of Ticky Bill (speaking of The Bill)?
Theory: Pietmond is truly beyond me, and has a consciousness of its own. “Of course,” is what I hear Hucka D. saying here. It draws people to it. What began as me will end as me and others. Significant others and not people I don’t really know. Where, even, is the dividing line? Is it [delete name]? “Could be,” I hear Hucka D. inserting here. You have to have a line drawn somewhere.
Merk Coolie Brighton: Who will accept me as such and who will reject me. That is the line.
Red square containing, I believe, the entire length of newly discovered and explored Cache Creek — a secret until now, if you will — is 2500×2500 feet, or not even quite .25 square miles. Yet what a lot packed into this 1/4th square mile (!). One of the more amazing streams I’ve hiked in my local territory for certain. More mystical than newly crowned NORRIS? In ways, yes. Unfortunately I didn’t bring my camera along for this remarkable, rhododendron choked walk, but it might have been for the best given I had absolutely *no* room for error along the way, as it turned out.
Creating a separate sub-category for this stream now… will perhaps return tomorrow for some pics. Another incredible 2011 hiking find, which keep piling up. First Quartz Brook, then Brook 2, then Green Oz Creek and Tinsity, then NORRIS, and now Cache. Is this the best of the lot?
Below I point to the location of Cache Creek on my wall sized map of Frank Park hung in my basement study.
“You can do whatever you want to, baker b., it’s your blog.”
“I am that stream.”
The stream is I.
Ask her some questions, baker b., if you wish.
First off, thanks once more for appearing on the Baker Blinker Blog here.
I will ask questions to you. Thank you, Hucka D. and baker b. for inviting me into your house.
OK, that works for me. Thanks to you and you both. Thank you Carcassonne and thank you baker b.
Are you Baker… um, I am… I am…
Anderson and Faulkner?
She isn’t sure who she is. This is her stream, her blog, her even typing the words we write about her.
I am those words.
Is she unformed?
I am Carcassonne. You found me both yesterday and today. I am the stream. I am the blog. I am these words.
MISSISSIPPI. This must be Norris. I AM THE GREATEST. Norris is the greatest. NO. I AM FILLED WITH WHITENESS. Rocks, you mean. NO. YES. I WAS WRONG. You were channeling? YES. I WAS WRONG. TELL THEM THAT. Well, it’s an amazingly beautiful stream just chocked full of white rocks. [no answer] The most challenging part was when I heard the road [to the south] but couldn’t quite reach it; had to double back on my trail toward the end, which I almost never do. I’m quite intuitive in the open woods usually. [no answer] That place with the cascades between the rock, do you know what I’m talking about? [no answer] There I will build a town. I will call it…
Cache Creek, 01
Amazing new find in Frank Park near my Blue Mountain home base: Cache Creek (warning: creek name subject to change).
Length: Probably about 2 Norris’, or about 1/3rd of a mile. Very complicated, however, for its length, again somewhat like Norris.
The below picture actually comes from more toward the mouth of the creek, near where a famous road runs over it. I thought the effect of the stick in the creek here worthy of blog inclusion.
But to back up, we start near the head of Cache Creek, in a rather large meadow averaging about 3600 feet in elevation, and covering around a quarter of a square mile in area.
I didn’t get a good picture of it this day, but that rock pile on the side of the hill actually makes a smiley face. Not very profound, but certainly worth a mention. The figure doesn’t show up on Bing Maps, in checking that source right now. Must be of fairly recent origin, then.
Then in the sw corner of the meadow, we have the actual beginning of magical Cache Creek. That brown leaf in the water looks like a frog, but isn’t. Curiously, perhaps, I *did* see a frog jump into this small pool upon my approach. Let me check again — no, it’s a leaf. Isn’t it? The whole pool topography is a little curious, actually, with crystal clear water, mud cliffs dotted with tiny white, projecting rocks, and also mysterious underwater holes. The large, moss covered rock in the center of this picture almost seems like some kind of alter placed at the head of the creek. Will have to return here to take more pictures another day.
More mysteries: a row of white rocks helps to highlight a faint path from the meadow’s edge to a point a little further down the creek from its head, a natural ford.There were about 6 rocks lying equidistant from each other on this path.
The ford at the creek. A strong theme of this creek is: white rocks. Bunches and bunces of ’em.
I was surprised in my initial visit to this flat upstream area to find the large, jutting rock pictured below. I now see it as part of the overall magic that such an out-of-place seeming stone would appear here.
There is considerable sand along the creek as well in spots.
Below is pictured a percieved energy center with lots of sandy areas wedged between the creek and a swampy, undrained region to its south. Difficult to take a good snapshot here, though. One of those “another day” projects, once more.
Cache Creek, 02
I’m a couple of weeks behind in writing the text for this post. Unfortunately I haven’t returned to this creek in the meantime. The name has perhaps also changed: to Secret Creek from Cache Creek, further degeneratable to Secreek or Sea Creek (C Creek? or just Creek?). The picture at the bottom of the first photo post on this creek represents, as stated, a type of gathering point for parties wishing to explore the more exciting areas just further downstream. Let’s talk a look ourselves now at some of these areas.
The creek slowly begins to pick up speed as we get beyond the gathering place. Rocks become more common along the bottom…
… leading to perhaps the largest single drop of water on the creek, as yet unnamed. Hard to take a nice picture of it, though, because of all the rhododendron. Cut it all down? Nah, of course I can’t do that.
Very interesting, larger white rock just below the drop. I’ve sat at this spot several times now, contemplating the meaning of the stream, the region. Contemplation Rock?
The stream basically stops flowing just beyond this rock, and the backup somehow creates these interesting parallel white lines of suds in the middle of it. Almost like lettering of some sort.
The 3 pictures below are taken at another significant location along the creek after a horseshoe bend beyond Contemplation Rock and accompanying still pool. Rocks line both sides of the creek, as well as the bottom. Again I don’t yet have a name for the mini-canyon, but I sense it is a center of energy still. A tributary enters Secret Creek from the left just before the passage begins (not pictured), perhaps its first well defined one counting from the source. In the hike from the day before, I found there were at least 3 tributaries entering Secret Creek along its length, none approaching the size of the main stream.
A flat, reddish rock almost appears to act as a warning about the difficult passage directly ahead, and to take heed.
I discovered that by far the easiest way to get through it myself is to just walk over the jagged rocks lining its bottom…
… quickly leading to another, larger rock beside which the stream pretty much stops its flow again, seeming to need rest after all the prior excitement, once more.
I can’t wait to go back another day for more pics, hopefully when the sun is shining. Also perhaps to create a rough map, like I did with Norris before.
Another small mountain conquered today. Didn’t take my camera unfortunately, because there were some very interesting nooks and crannies involved, once more. The amazing late 2011 surge of hiking finds continues (!) The highlight was perhaps the uncovering of what looks like a decrepit treehouse in the woods, perhaps a center for rope climbing activities. I’ll have to think carefully about what to call this mountain. I believe — I’m certain, actually — that the Mossmen culture was also tied into this mountain. Maybe yet another map is in order.
I also wanted to talk to Hucka D. about Big E tonight. “Hucka?’
Sorry, got distracted in googling the names of Korean Channel sims. Can’t seem to find a common outside (real world) denominator, almost as if the names were just made up… almost as if…
The alphabet anomaly of the Korean Channel and Big E was their only purpose, yes.
bb (after checking some more):
Yes. It seems. Tired of checking.
Hidden within TILE (Tyle?) is the tetractys, composed of 10 letters from T to, looping back to the beginning of the alphabet, C. TUVWXYZABC. Tetractys. Can be summarized by letters T-V-Y-C occupying positions 1-3-6-10 in that lion. Line. (pause)
Those are the 4 letters not found in the Korean Channel sims [letters beginning sims’ names]. They are instead the hidden tetractys or Realm of Numbers inside or covered by the Realm of Letters.
bb (after another pause while exploring a bit of the Korean Channel):
I just don’t think there’s much there, Hucka D.
I mean, I’m reminded of why Karoz fell into a portal connecting Jeogeot to Maebaleia after this.
Crabwoo is almost completely gone now, Hucka D. Only a shed and a bit of wood left.
All I have is Pietmond.
And Frank and Herman Parks, of course. Einstein (smiles).
And a bit of Teepot as well.
I am forgotten. I am alone.
Couldn’t get to you today. Found some more stuff in Frank Park, though. You know [delete peak name]?
No. I know only myself. (un-smiles)
You should get out more.
I have tributaries with different news. (pause)
Looks like that’s it.
Hucka D. has apparently left the scene, but I did also want to mention that Pietmond’s newly installed Big E is angled in the same direction as the SoSo East Gallery immediately below it. Relationship, then, between Big E and Oblong collages within SoSo East? Big E as related to 2001’s monolith (pictured in Oblong 10)?
Is Pietmond itself set to make an evolutionary jump?
