The exciting new self-parody academic field of greenYgreyology hardly ever stands still, despite moving into the POP age, with new material presented and debated right here in the greenYgrey3 blog. The greenYgrey time is now like archaeology in the human world, with POP the modern history.
Memory Brings Find and Revision
After posting the latest XaW Files episode yesterday I remembered that I’d originally intended to post the Vinkovci crest within the poem. Then, when I read the poem and looked at the seal again today, after enlarging it to post here, I noticed the grain looked green, meaning the complete three colours of greenYgrey were in fact in the seal, whereas at the time of writing the poem I hadn’t seen the green.
So the three colours of greenYgrey added to the three images of three items means it’s a 3 x 3 x 3 which is the date… tomorrow!
We first vacationed in Vinkovci
under a seal of three times three times three
including my colours green, yellow and grey
the latter colour also looks three-dimensional
separating grapes, maize and birds diversity.
If the correction makes you doubt the quality control of the book, well, science is always testing and correcting itself, and travel writing is more about capturing personal feelings and experiences than accurate data… especially when it’s by web maps!
Available to buy or borrow on Amazon and some great big bookshops.
