Explorers Journal From The Pink Planet: Part 7

Pink Planet


Of course, very soon afterwards, I did learn how to spell ‘bread’ and the whole count business was no longer accurate. HUMANS though take this sort of thing and decide WHO gets to GET bread! Can you imagine?  This is all based upon their goofy idea that there isn’t enough for everyone so you need some way of deciding who gets what there is. But don’t worry, my cat came back HOME, just out exploring for the day…

I’ve felt very lonesome here on PLANET EARTH much of the time. Fortunately, I had a bit of paradise when we went away for the summer each year. I always felt closest to HOME where we lived in the summer.  I walked in the woods there, peered over the cliffs out onto the open seaway, rode my horse, slept under the STARS, and felt, deep in my heart, as if I was nearly HOME.  I could almost touch HOME there.  I could see HOME in my heart—taste HOME and nearly smell HOME. In fact, you can see the Aurora Borealis, the northern lights from there.  They say “The Northern Lights are actually the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth’s atmosphere with charged particles released from the sun…”  But being from HOME, I know differently.

After a while what my mother taught me began to come true, and I travelled to another place away from my parents and away from my friend James. I didn’t know it at the time, but I was searching for a place a bit more like HOME where I could live full time. I still wasn’t aware I had a mission. Only I had this nagging urge. I knew whatever I was searching for, wasn’t what I had found yet.  There’s a great U2 PLANET EARTH song that says the same thing: “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.”  I think many of us away from HOME feel this same way…

I landed in a place the HUMANS called the City of Angels, Los Angeles, which is on the Pacific Ocean, on the west coast of California in what the HUMANS call the United States of America. City of Angels! How much more beautiful a name can you have for something— like home away from HOME?

They have a saying here on PLANET EARTH that ‘a rose by any other name is still a rose.’ And perhaps the City of Angels is still full of angels, but it’s hard to tell because the city sits in deep smog; something the HUMANS created when they set about making obstacles for each other.

They all seem in Los Angeles as if they could be HOME if they would only believe it. And they want to believe it; they try so very hard to make it true.  But, to me, the harder they tried, the farther away from HOME they seemed.  There were movie stars who were really waitresses; writers who were really lawn maintenance folk; models who were really nannies. It was difficult just trying to figure out whom everybody REALLY was; and after all it didn’t matter much to me, because at my HOME we are all the same anyway, no matter who you might think you are.

It wasn’t long before I travelled to another place, since I was feeling like ‘a duck out of water’ as they say on PLANET EARTH. What is a duck out of water anyway?  I think they have the funniest sayings here. HUMANS are like that, always making up funny stuff to mean something different from what they are really saying. They call it polite.  They say it is cultured and civilized.  Me? I just find it hilarious!

Thomas and his friend from the PINK PLANET think they are going on vacation together when they volunteer to explore PLANET EARTH. They find through many lost friends and lessons that getting back to the PINK PLANET is more challenging then anticipated. Lucky for them, they have their hearts to guide them.
