Day 24.1: I set out this morning in search of George Harrison .

The roadside was a blur as I drove along to the park.

I peered through the forest as I hiked

and tripped over a stone that blocked my way.

I sat on a bench for a little rest

and looked up to the sky and soon began to nap.

When I woke I found this handwritten note in my shirt pocket.

I drove back home satisfied that my search for George Harrison had been a success.

I made some updates to the Georgegarden as it's been a couple years. I also used my regular avatar instead of my current one because it's more distinct/recognizable as not part of the Georgegarden itself, and looks properly meditative.

Day 24.5 

I didn't know what to post for today so here's a poem that I wrote earlier this year that's kind of inspired by George and Patti and it's kind of really bad but you know what here it is, do with it what you will, fiendish thingies: 

Raven hair curls around pale ears

Caresses the nape of his neck

Falls just short of sloped shoulders

Wisps over sharp cheekbones 

 

Dark eyebrows dominate his visage

Bring attention to clever eyes of bitter chocolate

Yet don’t overshadow his sweet sincerity

and eager soul

 

Coolly, he stands there 

Hands in the pockets of leather pants

Leaning against the shadows

But never joining them 

Begging to be mysterious 

But he’s still just a teenager 

 

Nighttime presses against him 

And he pushes back

Not willing to succumb to its blindness

Smoke drifts from parted lips 

It fills him now, and would choke him later 

 

A golden girl made of dim stardust 

Sits besides him 

Running a warm hand through his raven-black hair 

She is his candle 

 

Her presence washes over him 

And inspired by her, 

Inspired by her beauty and starlight, 

He devotes his words and soul to her eagerly

But they are still just teenagers 

 

He serenades her lovingly 

With a drawling voice that drip, drips

Like ink falling from pen to page 

He hugs his guitar close to him

Gently running his fingers over its strings

Producing notes that purr and ease over her 

And she is soaked in his affection 

 

Her name decorates every verse 

As he breathes her into the hollow night sky 

Under the masked moon 

And long, wispy lashes tickle her cheek 

As she blinks the tears away 

But she’s still just a teenager 

 

Soon her stardust fades from him 

And he is made a bit colder

Left emptier 

His only light having flitted away

Across the black blanket of sky

To be the Layla of another boy 

 

His music couldn’t keep her 

But he still pours himself into it 

Weeping and singing to a world of shadows

Trying to see,

Not wanting to be blind 

His lungs full of smoke 

 

As friends and lovers drift around 

Like constellations 

Across his nighttime sky 

And as he revolves with the world 

All candles melt away 

And all love songs drift to an end 

As All Things Must Pass

 

It's kind of really emo, ngl, but then again my assignment was to convey love through the color black so like mccartney-shrug_01_gif

Day 25.2 

For George's Birthday , I wore an outfit inspired overall by George's garden: jean overalls, floral crop top, pastel eyeshadow, floral socks, and my Doc Martens. I'm also prominently wearing my George pin and my Rubber Soul pin on my overalls. 

I also changed my phone background for Georgemas (finally): 

In other news, I'm disappointed because I only had time to listen to All Things Must Pass yesterday, and didn't make any further progress in my Harribinge. I was too busy working on schoolwork and studying and stuff at Panera. I could have listened to more tunes while I worked, but it would have distracted me too much mccartney-shrug_01_gif

Thinking of George this morning and looking out the window at my garden (it's cold). All Things on shuffle and first song to arrive is Art of Dying. I was rooting for Run Of The Mill , but the lyric expands my consciousness as George has been known to do quite often...

But if you want it
Then you must find it
But when you have it
There'll be no need for it

George song of the day:

 

In 2014, Olivia let a minute of this demo be played on BBC Radio. WE STILL HAVE NOT GOT THE ENTIRE THING- DAMN YOU HARRISON ESTATE!

 

So, here's Fear of Flying , a cover of Charlie Dore's song. It's very pretty and I'd love it even more if we had the entire bloody thing.

 

 

Really makes me want another Early Takes but the likelihood of that happening this decade seems about as likely as me winning an Olivier this decade.

I said earlier today:
Day 25.3 

British GQ released two wonderful George-related articles today heart:

Here's one on his lovely cars

And here's the other which celebrates George's gorgeous fashion sense 

  

But wait! There's more!

British GQ released yet another article on my favorite Pisces today: 

This article commemorates George's beautiful hair 

Ngl, Harrison definitely had the best hair out of the Beatles......it was just so great...all the time. (and don't even get me started on his Elvis quiff that challenged God 's reach! ahdn_john_08_gifahdn_john_08_gif If I could marry hair......)
