poetry and prose about place

an intelligent world of blue

with 2 comments

Yesterday, we went on a drive along the Saint John River from Oromocto to Jemseg. We hoped to see some birds or other wild life. But we didn’t even see a crow!!!!


However we did see the world painted in a sweet-toned shade of blue … the ice on the river, the long shadows on the meadows and the sky. I was reminded of Douglas Adams and his tribute to hooloovoo ‘blue’.


A Hooloovoo is a super-intelligent shade of the color blue.

― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

    • Hi Jennifer. Thanks, Douglas Adams gets all the credit! I think you said you’d like to be a beta-reader for my book. If you are still interested, send me an email at Jane
