It goes without saying this album is a Time/Space fave, right? 😉

Written by that prairie-girl, Joni Mitchell, performed by CSNY… We are stardust, we are golden… Groovy, cats and kittens. Dig it.
Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?
The Cheshire Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.
Alice: I don’t much care where.
The Cheshire Cat: Then it doesn’t much matter which way you go.
Alice: …So long as I get somewhere.
The Cheshire Cat: Oh, you’re sure to do that, if only you walk long enough.
~ Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
Hey, cats and kittens, the Airplane…
“You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.”
~ Morpheus, The Matrix
Psychedelic, cats and kittens. Strawberry Fields Forever…
This is an Ode to my Ford wagon, my trusty steed, Strawberry Fields (1991-2008). Had her 10 years. She bit the stardust. She was not ‘forever’. She is no more. Recycled her to be sure.
Fields, oh, Fields…
Fields and me. Me and fields. Batman and the Batmobile… The Lone Ranger and Silver… James T. and the Enterprise…
Fields and me…
Lady Madonna was my first. Strawberry Fields was second. Penny Lane was next, but, didn’t last. Now, I’ve got Jude and I’m holding fast. She’s the best ride yet and her stereo is a blast. 😉 lol
A Very Tongue-in-Cheek… Ode to Strawberry Fields
*Ahem 😊 La la la-la la… La!*
How do I ❤ thee
Let me count the ways
I ❤ed thine sparkly windows
With their wide open vantage
I ❤ed your substandard air conditioning system
Like no other hot girl ever
Before or since
Oh! How you sported bumper stickers
With style and grace
Making it effortless to find you
In any given place
Proclaiming for all to see
The ‘Jedi Mind Tricks’
Just, simply, would not work
On you or me
No one else got the law enforcement/physics one
No one, except for you
Because you’re the only one
Fields, it’s true…
And, somehow, your freckles of rust
Could only succeed
In enhancing your appearance
Never detracting from it…
Not for one instance
Like little beauty marks
Oh! How beautiful you are
Your lack of cruise control
Only convinced me
That unlike others
You were not a follower
But, a leader among steeds
And, you led me all the way
You led me to the Vet’s
To the grocer’s and the fair
You led across wintery scenes
Through green fields and clean air
You led, you led
From here to there
Then, you’d lead me home again
Just as safe as can be
So, as I say goodnight to you
I hang my teary head
You’re the best darned car
I ever did meet
And, I’m so sorry that you’re…
It had been raining. The sun emerged in the evening…
Out of the corner of my eye I saw red light? Turned to look… It was twinkling, sparkling?
The sun was refracting vivid red through a raindrop on a leaf on a Dogwood bush outside the window. It looked like it was twinkling Morse Code. Like it was a little faerie trying to speak to me, or something?!? A Who? It was BEAUTIFUL! Holy 🐮!!! Holy 🐮!!! Holy 🐮!!! Holy 🐮!!! Holy 🐮!!!
It was predominantly red but kinda strobed a bit of silver and gold. Almost like a star right outside my window…. The light varied in size between a marble and a golf ball. Just super-fantastique! Magic! MA-GIC! Wow… Like an ‘Infinty Gem’. Groovy.
Actually tried to capture it on video — wanted to refer to the Morse Code (I know. I know. Does it get more geeky than that? Good grief. 😊 roflol) The video on the phone has no zoom and if I moved I couldn’t see it anymore? I could only see it from exactly one place, one perspective. It made me feel overwhelmingly like I had been in exactly the right place at the right time. WAY, WAY, WAY cool! I’ve NEVER seen anything like it. EVER.
BREATHTAKING, MAN! Breathtaking… Aaaaahhhhhh… I’m still beside myself. Really am.
Lovely. Lovely. Lovely. Lovely… Lovely… Even yummy? Just… yeah…!
REALLY wish I could have captured it for you.
I’ve been searching for an image to accompany it. This is the best I could do. The orbs are similar in shape and essence. But it was a deep ruby and more defined. Really just spectacular.
