Sci-fi wonderland…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s adjectives are: punchy, mammalian, crinal, suave, stylopised, nival, and circumforaneous.
Hm, I think my favourite has to be stylopised.

So, as soon as we landed on the fourth planet of the system, Thepthon, we immediately slipped into our space suits and ventured outside the ship. Under Thepthon’s low gravity we quickly bounded and skipped over to the mysterious slate-grey pyramid that we had earlier observed from low orbit. It was a couple of kilometres high; it had smooth glossy featureless sides, but there were small circular openings at intervals around its base. On approaching we could see that the openings, over the millennia, had filled up with the drifting sparkling orange dust that seemed to make up most of the planet’s surface. After half-an-hour’s work we managed to clear most of the dust out of one of them; at about a metre in we encountered a thick flat solid transparent material blocking our way. We observed light shining through from the interior of the building, and on brushing away the last of the dust we gasped in awe at our first view of the interior of this vast alien structure. Its floor was marked with lines, horizontal squares of bright light, and pieces of strange cylindrical apparatus, rising as if on stalks, from the pristine white surface that stretched out in front of us… I turned, nudged Captain Guppy, and said that I thought that…

Anyway, here is a photograph I took of a cafe ceiling here in Dulltown last August…

    I sometimes lie on the floor at home and consider walking on the ceiling…it’s an interesting point of view. (K)

    As my kids would say, “That’s very Tron.”

    I would warn you that they are probably the only kids in the world who say that.
