Golden Way February 1, 2012

“Goldie sits, or, better, kneels atop the SoSo gallery, Hucka D., identified with it, even merging with it. The other golden-y statue of 7 Stones stands on the porch of House Greenup — another identification. SoSo houses the 20 collages of the Oblong series; House Greenup holds the 20 from the earlier Greenup series. These 2 series are set apart from the rest of the collages of the 10×10 in the larger Gallery Jack. They are identified together in other ways as well. I’m proposing that we call the path or “way” of the town between the top of the stairs below the House Greenup statue (golden-y in color, as stated before) and the bottom of the stairs leading down into the small plaza with the red and blue robots surrounding the stacked 7 stones the Goldie Way. It will be comprised of these two stairs, and then the approximately 10 meters worth of walkway connecting the two, which is partly of a different color (sandy) from the rest in the town. You can see this space marked between the “A” and the “B” in the overhead view I submit below.”

Correction: Let’s call it the Golden Way.”

Hucka D.:

Continue.

bb:

This proposed Golden Way has two sections perpendicular to one another. One, the longer part, points to the golden statue on the porch of House Greenup, the Trojan warrior type thingie. The shorter part, which is basically just the lower of the two sets of stairs on this proposed way, and a squarish platform at the top, correspondingly gives a great view of Goldie sitting atop SoSo. I submit two further photos of these views, taken by Baker Bloch while sitting at the top of the lower stairs.

Here’s an overhead view again with the more or less exact dimensions of our Golden Way, shaped like an “L”.

Hucka D.:

Warren Zeevon was unable to join us tonight, so I have the only other vote here, baker b. I vote “yea” on the adding Golden Way to the nomenclature of the town’s system. In fact, I would go further and say it should be recorded in official records that this was the first way named, and the first name of the town established beyond the galleries and structures themselves, basically imported from Pietmond after all. The Golden Way is a solid beginning to 7 Stones moving beyond and away from Pietmond, baker b.

bb:

Great. Do we call it the Golden Way or *The* Golden Way?

Hucka D.:

Golden Way, if you’re agreeable.

bb:

Then it will be recorded as such in the official records. I assume you’re the official record keeper, since you’ve been writing all this down. I didn’t bring a pen, after all.

Hucka D.:

Yes, I will be the official 7 Stones recorder, baker b. I am the Golden One, after all (smiles).

bb:

Nice one. Do we want to talk about the parallels between the Greenup and Oblong series in the two structures connected by this Golden Way?

Hucka D.:

Not tonight. I would like to talk about the 2 robots, if you would kindly continue, once more.

bb:

OK, so my thinking about the red and blue robots on either side of the 7 Stones stacking in the heart of town is that one traditionally manifests at the Town Limits[ beside the sign] and the other takes form in the Town Dump. Let’s see, that would be the red one coming from the dump, and the blue one from the town limits. No, that’s the other way around. Anyway, here’s another overhead map, showing their respective journeys from the two sources to the 7 Stones statue that blocks each from further progress. “Y” would be the Town Dump, and “Z” would be the Town Limits. But perhaps “Z” would be better described as the small park-like area above the sign demarking the town limits, Hucka D. Another “dump” of sorts?

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

So continuing: the blue robot, after his birth or origin in the Town Dump, would then circle around House Greenup on the way to the statue of 7 stones. The red robot would similarly loop around SoSo on the way to same. They, in this [looping] way, [signify] the two structures themselves. And also it’s very important to note that the Golden Way is the only official walkway in town, perhaps, that seems separate from this “Way of the Red and the Blue”, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

The Way of the Red and the Blue is the way of confusion, of impediment. 7 Stones blocks the way. I would like to propose another official town name, baker b.

baker b.:

Go ahead. Too bad Warren isnt’ here tonight to cast his important vote, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Correct. I propose we call the statue of stacked stones the quote unquote “Statue of The Seven Stones”. Or maybe “Statue of Seven Stones”. Yeah, the latter sounds better.

bb:

I will agree to this naming. Put it in the record: “Statue of Seven Stones”.

Hucka D.:

I am writing it down now, then.

bb:

Great. Wonderful. So what next?

Hucka D.:

There’s two ways the two structures and two series in question are connected. First is through the red and blue robots and the Way of the Red and the Blue.

bb:

Is that another official town name, Hucka D.? Sorry to interrupt.

Hucka D.:

Not sure. And then there’s the Golden Way that also connects the two. Two ways, then, that the two structures are connected. Two ways through the two ways (paths). Curious.

bb:

And 4 statues involved, two golden ones, and then the two of opposite red and blue. Would you call the robots statues, though?

Hucka D.:

No. Moving statues?

bb:

Dunno.

bb:

Anyway, moving on from that for now. So here’s certainly an interesting tidbit, perhaps directly tying the community of Seven Stones to the much older twin hamlets of Mysten Parva and Mysten Underhill. The bridge connecting the latter two hamlets here…

… lies exactly north of both the 7 Stones Dump and the 7 Stones entrance sign (points Y and Z on the map above). Exactly.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Most definitely a connection. Don’t you think 7 Stones resolves the differences between the two Mysten communities and welds them together?

bb:

Appears so in some way, Hucka D.
