Early Underground

We were about to leave, when a porcelain pod came around the corner, and MiMo Moby emerged from it. We were ecstatic, and greeted him with gusto; he seemed equally pleased to see us.

I told him the Dame had been a disappointment, so Angry, Cathy and Elle were uncertain of their future in Oz, and I didn’t know if I could return to the Greenygrey world.

Moby Pep Talk

MiMo looked at us all, and then back at Elle, before saying, ‘Why, Elle had body issues when she joined you; she had lost all her strength. But she has been using her body with great dexterity throughout the Ozyssey, and now has her confidence back.’

I had to agree. Elle leapt into the air with joy.

‘And Angry was letting the Neighbours’ opinions of his mind get to him; making him feel inadequate. But he has been using fantastic judgement all through the epic adventure, and working well within your travel team.’

Once more, I had to agree. Angry sang a celebratory tune he spontaneously created.

‘And Cathy was in low spirits when you met; but freedom, movement, natural space, friendship, being valued and success have helped lift her spirits since joining your epic adventure; and also raised yours at crucial times in this rousing ramble.’

Yet again, I had to agree. Cathy saluted the sun.

‘And you, Grey, you have reached your destination, and helped bring the hats of hope home to Emerald. Deep down you know you have the power to return to Green whenever you want. The Greenygrey world is free again; as free as Emerald.’

I thanked MiMo Moby for everything, and we all said hearty farewells before he disappeared around the corner in his porcelain pod. Not long after, Brian arrived from the same direction.


Corrie Soap before Boomerang Dashes Green Hope


Although we were travelling by sea, it didn’t mean we missed out on seeing mammals. Why, while passing Wommara Avenue we saw a wombat hitch-hiking to the Masai Mara; and on Kalaroo Road we saw a kangaroo either side of LA.

We stopped for a wash at the Corrie Island Nature Reserve, as it was overflowing with soap, and there were lots of spare brushes on the nearby Mungo Brush road.

We dried off under the whopper wind at the Wind Woppa Reserve.

Boomerang Wastes the Green Day

Feeling refreshed, we ate up the nautical miles at a good rate of knots in the afternoon, and a few hours later reached Boomerang Beach. That’s when the day started going downhill; or to be more accurate, around and around. Because once we stepped onto the beach we were thrown up into the air, and spun around at great speed over Elizabeth Beach and The Lakes Way.

I thought, at least we’re heading north; maybe it’s a stroke of good fortune. I saw Green Point ahead, and thought it might be a sign; maybe we’ll land on a nice patch of green when we reach it.

But I hadn’t taken the Boomerang part of the beach’s name into consideration. Because the next moment, the return movement seemed to kick in over the Booti Booti National Park, and we just about reached Green Point before being spun south again.

Before we knew it, we were returning to Boomerang Beach; and as soon as we touched the ground we were thrown back into the air for another circuit!

Meditations in Green of Green


My dream in green seemed to continue for an age, and I remembered so much of it I wonder if it really was a dream in green, or more meditations in green.

Meditations in Green to Animals Soundtrack

I thought a lot about Green, and it was as if Green was there in the green of the Rainbow Valley.

I didn’t want to leave the comfort I felt in green, and the way it reminded me of Green, but when I awoke I saw that Bonzo and Elle had been joined by the Animals met in Western Australia, and they had made a clearing, constructed a campsite and were singing We Just Gotta Get Out of this Place again.

I took the hint and rose from my slumber.  Just as I approached the group, the animals seemed to fade away into the ether, singing that it was nice to see me again, but they had only popped in to help me emerge from my meditations, and it was now time to go.

Green with Jealousy

When I approached Bonzo and Elle they smiled, and were very understanding, saying it was nice to see me awake.

I was very grateful for their understanding, but also felt like the green-eyed monster as feelings of jealousy coursed through me, because if others had behaved as I did it might have made me depressed, but ol’ Scottie and Elle were totally serene about it all.

Blue on the Other Side of Green to Yellow

Maybe it was all the green thoughts that had made me think I was the green-eyed monster, and I felt a bit guilty about being green negative, what with my other green half locked up in a dirty stinking cell back in blighty, so my mind joined the others in thinking we had to get outta the place.

We left, and rode the wavelengths of green until eventually seeing blue ridged mountains in the distance.
