Norris Area Again, 01 November 13, 2011

Filed under: Herman/Frank Parks (rl parks),NORRIS,Turnpike Creek — baker Blinker @ 11:53 pm

This is the head or beginning of the *Mouth* of Norris, certainly not to be confused with the Head of Norris itself (the stream’s actual source). No, this particular Norris highlight lies only about 20 yards from where it empties itself into Turnpike Creek, and where the flow becomes clearly visible after a number of yards of underground existence starting at the Two Trees space (see below).

Mouth of NORRIS curving just downstream from the above picture and then straightening out on its homestretch toward Turnpike Creek.

The actual mouth. The large rock in Turnpike Creek here is Voice Rock once more.

Best blog picture of Voice Rock yet, most likely.

It really does look like the channel was artificially straightened here (‘cept it couldn’t be).

Interesting root formation in same, general area.

The Two Trees bridge crossing Norris just upstream from the start of Mouth of Norris (see first picture above).

There are actually *two* sets of two, larger fallen tree pairings in this region, both forming a “v” and falling almost at right angles from each other toward a common center. This resulted in 4 crossings of unpaired trees, or the maximum amount possible. One such crossing is pictured below.

A better idea of what I’m talking about, hopefully, can be gleaned from the map of the “Norris Map Detail 03” post just above. See “Two Trees” space enlargement center-left. An isosceles triangle is implied, even, through the resulting intersections.

Another larger, root system, this time in the 1st more open area the stream flows through, just above Two Trees.

Interesting branch also from this same open sapce, giving an almost driftwood appearance.

Looking further upstream from this open space into a wilder, more plant congested region. No practical way through this tangle; I must either walk toward nearby Freedom Trail from this spot (right turn) or else head the opposite way up the ridge separating Turnpike Creek from Arthur Brook (left turn). I chose the latter this day, a fateful decision as it turned out.

Map Mouth of NORRIS November 10, 2011

Filed under: Herman/Frank Parks (rl parks),NORRIS,Turnpike Creek — baker Blinker @ 11:20 pm

We have NORRIS (stream) from head (Head of NORRIS) to foote, or source to mouth (Mouth of NORRIS)

Map Rat created this map? YES. Like the Map Rat that married off Frank and Herman Einstein at Gnirps last Spring Backwards. RIGHT. OK. DETAIL 01.

T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, and T6 are rock temples, Hucka D. NOT HUCKA D. NORRIS, then? RIGHT, OK, LEFT, NOT OK. OK myself. T5 IS A DAMN FINE DAM. NORRIS, you are an expert at dam building. Aren’t you? CALL ME Norris. OK, Norris. BUT I HAVE TO CALL MYSELF NORRIS. Or else it becomes confusing, I get it. YOU GET IT. Was Michael Too aware of channeling you, Norris, when building that damn dam in particular? AMSTERDAM. ROTTERDAM. BEAVER DAM. Back to the map, we have Independence Path branching off from the main path, or Freedom Trail. THE FREEDOM TRAIL, BECAUSE MICHAEL IS NO LONGER WITH US. No, it’s looking more and more like he’s departed. CARRCASS. Ok, I’ll think about that. CARRCASS. Seven? NO. ONE. TOO IS ONE. Back to the map, then, “Michael Won” at the southeast corner is the campground of Michael Too, confusingly. On the ridge above Dongoba and Norris. NORRIS. Norris, right. LEFT. Right, he seems to be gone. DONGOBA. Right. LEFT. Ok. OK. So… Freedom Trail or The Freedom Trail is the trail that runs alongside Norris all up and down its length. Independence Path branches off from this, leading to the Dongoba temple compound, I suppose you could put it, where we have Temples 1-6 on this map. T1 through T6, with T4 being by far the largest of these temples, with approximately 50 rocks as I’ve already talked about several times on this blog. Norris? Anyway, one of the two main tributaries of Norris also arises nearby, making a ridge between it and Norris. THE RIDGE. FIRST RIDGE. There you are. I AM LISTENING. That forms, really, a small gorge on your side NORRIS. Sorry: Norris. Does Luther, your child perhaps… is he a child? YES. AND ARTHUR. We’ll get to Arthur soon enough. LUTHER IS A GREAT CHILD. ALWAYS STAYS WITHIN HIS BANKS. NEVER ADDS TOO MUCH SILT TO ME. QUIET. DOESN’T BABBLE MUCH TO HIMSELF. So — back to the map — on Luther we also have the interesting formation I call the Moss Dragon for now, or Mossdragon. THIS IS MISSISSIPPI. EASTOFBUTCHIE. And then close to where Luther empties into Norris, you… ME… we have a small village of white rocks called, presently again, Whitesity. Kind of like Mocksity, then, or Tinsity. WHITESITY IS IMPORTANT TO ME; US. Curious, Norris: we have a Mosshead Rock also at the Head of Norris, and then a Moss Dragon, also a kind of head. My idea is that this is also the same as the Abbadon swamp monster of Tinsity, speaking of Tinsity. Buried up to his eyebrows here, also making it a Monkey Head or perhaps a Monkey City. (pause) Did the burial of a Mossman up to his eyebrows actually create the Head of Norris? (pause) Norris? (another pause) Anyway, Moss Dragon seems related… I’ll take some more pictures tomorrow or attempt to do such. Do we want to talk about the 2 pink balloons tonight, Norris? [Norris doesn’t answer again]. Alright, we move on to Detail 02.

Detail 01

But I see I’ve forgotten to talk about the 7th perceived temple on map detail 01 above. If Norris doesn’t want to comment… I AM NORRIS. I WILL COMMENT. THIS IS THE WORKING OF MICHAEL TOO FROM MICHAEL WON. YOU FEEL YOU ARE BEING PUNISHED FOR THE NONUNDERSTANDING OF MICHAEL WON AND THAT IS TRUE IN PART. IT IS IN THE FUTURE. YOU WILL BE RIVALS ONCE MORE. HE WILL STEAL THE CARRCASSES. Interesting, Norris. YES. Temple 7 — Carrcass 7. Connection? NO. Ok, so moving to Detail 02 for real, now, let’s start with the very interesting Norris Rock, as I’m calling it now. For now. NORRIS ROCK. I AM NORRIS. So what of this rock? NORRIS ROCK OBSERVES FROM INNER INSIDE TRIANGLE OF SUN LAKE BUSH. CHANCE. BURNING BUSH. BUSH IS BESIDE ROCK AND THEY TALK. SUN LAKE BUSH. NORRIS OBSERVES SUN LAKE BUSH TRIANGLE. KNOWS OF PIXLEY. I feel they are 2 bushes, Norris. I AM NORRIS. TWO BUSHES CHANCED UPON. ONE BUSH IS 703. ONE BUSH IS 1164. The bushes are the 2 Plutonians? KNOWS OF PIXLEY. QUAIL. This Norris Rock — is it the center of Norris? NORRIS IS I. YES. THERE IS ANOTHER NORRIS ROCK THAT IS THE SAME NORRIS ROCK. TWO FOR ONE. The strange little arrow in Detail 02 below seems to indicate this — point to another rock on the creek directly behind the Norris Rock on Freedom Trail. Or The Freedom Trail. WHO IS NORRIS? Norris Rock Norris? I suppose it is you. IT IS NOT MY NORRIS. IT IS NOT I NORRIS. So the Norris Rock on the Freedom Trail and the Norris Rock on the Norris Creek are one and the same. NO. There’s a very faint path leading behind the Trail rock here back to the other rocks on the creek. You seem to be confused about what these are. I AM IN A SHARED DRIVE, NOT USED. Sharing or being “in sync” is sometimes difficult, Norris. YES. Are you saying that you can put us in sync? NO. Let me look at the map again… so I think where the box with the word “NORRIS” in it, that’s the center of Norris, you. And arrows from this box point to the very interesting rock on the creek, surrounded by larger rocks. There’s also two Michael Too temples on the creek here as well, or T8 and T9. T8 is interestingly made of several very flat rocks, Norris. HOUSTON. That’s what I’m getting to now, Norris. Thank you. HOUSTON TOO. TWO HOUSTONS. MINNESOTA HOUSTON AND ALABAMA HOUSTON. Do you have a problem with having two Houstons, Norris? NO. INSERT SOMETHING SOMETHING. Do you know of Wallace3 that perhaps lives on the Money Pot? MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL TOO DAY. Great. The confluence of Root and Money Pot here points to Houston[ County], Minnesota. MINNESOTA IS TOO, ALABAMA IS 3. There’s a swampy area on the other side of the Money Pot hillock from Norris Brook that I seem to label generally “Houston” on this map, Norris. It’s a larger open area, like around Luther Fork before. TOO AND 3 COMBINE THERE TO MAKE A WON. My neighbors growing up, the Houstons, lost a lot of money at one point. THIS IS GIVING BACK. What of the yellow Lodge Rock in the tree, Norris? It seems to point to the lodges of Twin Peaks, one White and one Black. WON TOO. Is the White Lodge Oz? [Norris doesn’t answer]. And now we get to Arthur. You probably want to talk about your other stream sibling, don’t you? ARTHUR IS A GOOD DAUGHTER. NOT TOO MUCH BABBLING AS WELL. SHE ROCKS IF SHE DOESN’T BLOW. WINTER: BLOWS. SUMMER: ROCKS. NO, WINTER AND SUMMER: BLOWS. FALL AND SPRING: ROCKS. She is closed off from me in both the summer and the winter, then. Is Hucka Doobie still your husband? NO. HE IS A THIEF AND A LIAR AND I HATE HIM. I REALLY DO. Thief? What did he steal. MY HEART. Do you think he’s still in love with Hurla Dontbee. DON’T SAY THAT NAME TO ME. You seem to then be in pain because of that relationship. IT WAS OVER IN A HEARTBEAT AND LASTED A HEARTBEAT LIFETIME. Do you want to say more about Arthur? LATER. Do you want to talk about Mouth of Norris, not shown in the map details but in the larger map at the top of this post? HOUSTON FELL. BLOOD. BONE. SAM. RELATIVE. BLOOD. BLACK. BROWNS. GRAY. GOLDENGATE. Thank you.

Turnpike Ck. Cascades November 6, 2011

Filed under: Herman/Frank Parks (rl parks),NORRIS,Turnpike Creek,Uncategorized — baker Blinker @ 4:03 am

These photos come from just downstream of Mouth of NORRIS on Turnpike Creek. I call the several sets of cascades, logically enough, the Turnpike Creek Cascades. More details soon enough, as I like to say. Great location once more! Place I’d never been to before this day.

 

one of these things is not like the other October 30, 2011

—–

Hucka D.:

That’s Norris. My wife.

bb:

Fantastic, Hucka D. (!) Congratulations by the way. Why wasn’t I invited to the weeding, though? Wedding, I mean.

Hucka D.:

Quickie. No time for invites. Actually I’m no longer married to Norris. We were divorced a couple of hours ago. She’s just a bit too cold now.

bb:

Well, it *is* almost November.

Hucka D.:

My Money Pot. I’ll always remember her. But now she’s a company. She owns a company[ I mean].

bb:

Do you work for this company? NORRIS, I take it[ is the name of the company].

Hucka D.:

I do (!) We do channeling. Like stream channels.

bb:

Do you dig stream channels?

Hucka D.:

Love ’em, in fact.

bb:

What does your company do? Details I mean.


Norris explains NORRIS (company)

Hucka D.:

We give Voice to things. Like someone gave us a voice[ at one time].

bb:

Interesting. Who are your clients?

Hucka D.:

Squirrels so far. And cats.

bb:

Is your company the 4th, or the Foreign One or 4-in-1?


Norris as The Arab

Hucka D.:

It is the Voice. The 4th. The thing unformed because it can’t compete with the cuteness of the Original Three. Why even try?

bb:

Are the cats aware of this 4th?

Hucka D.:

Yes! Indeed.

bb:

Do they know it as NORRIS?

Hucka D.:

No. (pause)

bb:

I have some more pictures of the Voice Rock, but they’re still not very good.

Hucka D.:

Shadows. Fog.


Norris as The Voice

bb:

I mean, I’m sure it means something, but I have years and years and years to figure it out. It’s protected.

Hucka D.:

Sure. The stream, the channel, is artificial, no?

bb:

This one?

The channel [Mouth of NORRIS] really does look artificial, Hucka D. Like it was dug.

Hucka D. (repeating):

Love it.

bb:

It really *is* suppose to represent a throat (!)

Hucka D.:

Yes. This stream is peculiar. Money Pot.

bb:

The heart of the stream. I don’t have any suitable pictures, yet, of the Money Pot. Nor Root Bridge, really, although this one kind of shows what is going on[ Root Bridge crossing NORRIS].

Hucka D.:

You’ve already shown that one.

bb:

I’m doing it again.

Hucka D.:

Get a better picture. NORRIS isn’t happy. Money, after all, is the root of all evil to-day.

bb:

Did the [presence of the] Money Pot make NORRIS unhappy?

Hucka D.:

Ultimately, it’s what led to the divorce. Money.

bb:

Money is Oz.

Hucka D.:

Yes it is. Indeed it is.

bb:

I want to tell you and the reader a story or a bit of one. I went to NORRIS today, as I did yesterday, and I fell asleep at one of the clear spots. A squirrel starting chattering while I was half-asleep, apparently, and I swore that the creek was imitating that chattering with its bubbling, as best as it could. Strange illusion for sure if it wasn’t real.

Hucka D.:

Oh it was real.

bb:

I just knew you were going to say[ something like] that.

Hucka D.:

And as I understand[ from NORRIS], you saw the spark in the creek. That’s NORRIS[ once more].

bb:

Yes. I imagined the spark in the creek as well. Very bright if small.

Hucka D.:

That’s the star that is the creek.

bb:

Thanks for that. I’m going to the Money Pot tomorrow, although I won’t have much time after work.

Hucka D.:

Get a dang blasted good pic of it, then.

bb:

I’ll try. Do you want to say more about the Money Pit and Root Bridge, perhaps?

Hucka D.:

Too close, yet. Too painful still. It is the deep mystery. How to deal with money[ when it comes to you].

bb:

Oh, and Wallace3 lived at the Money Pot.

Hucka D.:

Oh yes.

bb:

And this region was also known as Houston at one time.

Hucka D.:

Then we have a problem.

bb:

Yeah? Well, what is it, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

That was a joke. Take it easy (!)

bb:

“Houston we have a problem.” Oh yeah.

Hucka D. (repeating):

Oh yeah.

bb:

Houston is two[ Minnesota] and three[ Alabama] together in one.

Hucka D.:

Corner. The 4th.


Norris as the Not-Cat

—–

While Hucka D. is away I thought I’d theorize more about his Money Pot, too painful for him to go into now, as he said. I believe the Money Pot is or has been[ or will be] disguised as the Monkey Pot, which is also a Pit. Monkey City reborn in essence, and Wallace3 there. Houston, with its ultimate (4th) corner properties. Calypso is the higher octave of Monkey City in Wazob octaves. Calypso is in Duplin County, along with Wallace (and attached Tin City, which it has basically swallowed) and Humphrey. This is the 1968 presidential election making Nixon the Crook our 37th president beyond 36 [Vice-President].

This is Pope. THIS IS POPE. Norris. NORRIS. Pope, POPE. The last president of the Confederation. Wheeler and The Triumvirate take over after this. Wheeler, Anderson, Norris. I think. Wheeler from Hayes, as Wilson is from Grant who is Nixon.

 

NORRIS, 02 October 26, 2011

Filed under: Herman/Frank Parks (rl parks),NORRIS,Turnpike Creek — baker Blinker @ 7:53 am

Stype Tree marking the traditional epicenter of the Stype community.

Directly in front of this tree, with an isolated cluster of rhododendron between them, appears the Stype Rock (name may change) within Turnpike Creek, next to the Mouth of NORRIS. I’ll attempt to get a better picture soon, but I’ll have to wade a bit in Turnpike Creek to make it. Unusual seeming rock; does it perhaps tell, through its surface, orange-y hieroglyphs, the complete story of the now super-sacred stream whose mouth it lies next to? Is it The Voice of NORRIS??

Come to think of it, I believe I rename that rock right now as The Voice, because I’m so sure I’m on to something here.

Mouth of NORRIS directly beside The Voice rock or Voice Rock.

Stone strewn island just in front of Mouth of NORRIS. Voice Rock/The Voice would be directly behind this island, hidden by a rhododendron branch. I believe I’ll call this Communication Island, with an alternate name of Battery. But that could switch as well (Alphland? Betland?)

Stone stacking within the Stype city limits, but obviously not of Michael Too’s design for a change. Not sure what its function is, though. Too short for a wall… have to think about that more as well, perhaps.

Another Stype shot. The community is marked by longitudinal gulleys or brook valleys divided by rolling ridges.

Moving into the NORRIS valley now, the land around the creek is rather easily separated into clear spaces such as the one pictured below, and the more inaccessible regions most often congested with rhododendron. ASAP, I’m going to make a map of each clear space on the creek all the way up to the source, which number perhaps 6 or 7.

Rock firmly wedged between a forking tree trunk. Not sure if this is the work of Michael Too. More on all of this soon enough, but I found it interesting today to find I could not pull the rock out from between this fork — it seems to have been there quite a long time, and the tree appears to have grown a bit since the lodging.

Nearby is an overturned rhododendron plant on the shore of NORRIS…

… with 4 strategically placed stones at the base. This most likely is a Michael Too production. The rocks seem to point to the mouth of a tributary of NORRIS just across the stream, perhaps its largest one.

NORRIS seems chocked full of mysteries, although its hard to convey in pictures. Like the waterfall shot below, suddenly appearing after a long stretch of creek flatness and seemingly having its own story to tell. I can just feel it.

Unusual “root bridge” spanning NORRIS in the same open area, and on one side of a quite unusual mound right next to the creek here. I suppose I’ll call it Root Bridge, then. The mound? Maybe Money Pot — is hidden treasure buried within? Something seems to be, at least. But, again, I found it hard to take a picture of the mound this day. Maps are coming soon, though.

And as I stated in my last NORRIS related post, there are little rock pilings appearing here and there all along NORRIS from mouth to source, including one or two near this mound, if memory serves.

Strange mushroom found in the vicinity. Alien in origin?
