@johnstaples started off the superskirmish yesterday with this invitation to use MapCrunch. I had just read about it in a challenge thread earlier, and had been eager to try it. I got the random view, and decided to just go shopping a little as well just in case something hit me more strongly. I happened upon Iceland, and then this observation launched me into high gear. It really was written in about 20 minutes, but I failed to use the "Share" feature for links, although I did do screen captures while I was looking around. It took me until today to figure out how to post the images here. Here's hoping they post okay.
The head tune has a bit of an Irish lilt to it. I don't have much recording opportunity today, so I'm happy (if it appeals to anyone else) for you to play with it!
Random Street View, View of the day,
Unnamed Road, Carrowdoogan, Co. Mayo, Ireland:
2nd random (yet picky) pick:
What does Iceland have
that Ireland doesn't,
except for swapping R out for a C?
From what I can see,
in a street-view-kind-of-study,
they both can rock a lovely shade of green!
Maybe miles without hills
and with mountains in the distance
a flat kind of thrill, with less friction and resistance,
If New Mexico were lush and green
perhaps then this could be a scene
near Santa Fe…
But in another way…
There's a charm to garden walls
made of rocks as round as balls,
and the clumps of patchy green along the rolling hills of farms
So it all depends on whether
you want cozy or remote
because you're getting green with either path you choose
And you really could do worse,
now, before you're in a hearse,
go and celebrate the green of this great earth!
