The Rain Bow Gate & The Full Crow Moon

I get some serious funny looks off people sometimes, especially so when I tell them I have to wait for certain things to happen. (I have mentioned this before).
I certainly did over the Rain Bow Gate situation. I obviously realise the Rain Bow Gate will be boring and meaningless to a lot of people if not all of you. (Yawn… Boring Rain Bow Gates, Delooze is mentally ill and has delusions about the Rain and Ferris wheels etc. etc.) I’m sure most people that have read my stuff prefer me to give them my usual sort of info (Which I will do)
So I won’t take up much of your time mentioning that The Rain Bow Gate was officially opened recently. I‘d like to add that it was actually yours truly that officially opened the gate and it was done with the full permission from the local authorities and with official instructions provided to boot from Burnley’s Cultural Development Manager. (I can sense you laughing in disbelief now). So I’ll add there was a willing and official honourable VIP in attendance helping too (My eternal thanks to you sir). It is true, I tell you the truth, that Burnley Authorities couldn’t afford to spend time and money officially opening this gate and they gave me permission to do it. I call it an act of fate.
I’m also very sure the Queen will have a look at the Gate one day soon as well, or if not the Queen, then Prince Charlie Boy will appear on the scene (Calling the Nut House about me are you?). Apparently Charlie Boy has suddenly found a love for this festering shit hole called Burnley, both through the ‘weavers triangle’ or simply through the Turf . They say I’m insane?
Where’s my sanity gone Mother?
I’m talking about Charlie Boy saying that to his Mam, not me saying it to mine! I bet you didn’t know Charlie Boy loved this shit hole called Burnley so much did you? But I have always known there’s more to Burnley than meets the eye and I’m not just talking dog-shit laden streets either. ;).
Anyway. I was going to do another video showing the gate, but harsh lessons and circumstances prevent that at the moment. I think I have shown in the past that I was fully aware that this Gate was being built anyway. I even filmed the foundations. So a brass band and fireworks is not needed to show that I officially opened of it. But I’ll improvise using the tools I have. I bet Stephen Spielberg doesn’t have similar budget problems.
Anyway here is yours truly officially opening the gate, with the full endorsement of the Authorities. Behold…
“Rhubarb Rhubarb Rhubarb”… “May all who sail in her”… “Blah Blah Blah” “Snippety Snip Snip”
Yer put yer right leg in… yer right let out…
Only Love Can Bring The Rain
OK? Job Done! Psychotic episode over with eh? Red and Blue ribbons are all used up too :). But I also feel I have to point out about another event that took place in ‘Lancashire’ last week. It was just one of those impossible things that I have to wait to come to pass every now and again.
I went down the road to Preston to witness the arrival of the ‘Global Rainbow’. You may have heard of this before obviously. It was/is being placed in three locations across ‘Northern’ UK. Here is a picture of me at the Global Rainbow. (The camera cost six quid from eBay as you can see).
Seeing it was my birthday I actually wept when I saw it. It was not quite a Boo Hoo Hoo session, it was just a one tear job. It was shedding a tear situation more than causing a flood situation. I’m sure I’ve had close to a thousand one tear jobs in the last 14 years.
Actually seeing this thing light up the night sky had special meaning to me. I had seen it for miles as I approached Preston and I laughed to myself when I realised that I was actually going to see one end of a Rainbow. I parked up and walked over to the marina and sat at the waters edge and I wept again. What a big softy I am. A big soft lump as me Mam would have said.

The Global Rainbow stretched for miles. It literally hid behind buildings etc.. I bet they could see it in Blackburn to the East and I bet it reached the eyes of folks in St Annes and Blackpool to the West.

I stayed at the Marina quite a while pondering on things and I must admit that I wept a couple of times. I ended up sat on a bench alone alongside the Marina, I must have looked a right bloody sorry state because a stranger, a lady in a bright blue anorak, came up to me and asked me if I was OK. I assured her I was OK, but I could see she didn’t believe me. I told her I was elated within and I felt like oneness was within me. I said ‘only love can bring the Rain’. Her concern must have left her because, after noticing a tear in my eye and looking at me like I was an escaped nut job, she walked away so quickly down the side off the Marina that she’d have easily beat the land speed record. As I saw her disappear in the distance I thought of the ‘Blue Bird’ (Female (Bird) in Blue) and the events on Coniston Lake many years ago. It set off a half funny / half sad trigger in me and I’m sure that trigger will come out in a form of information in the future.
I sat there alone again.
You see for someone like me who suffers from persistent delusions and psychosis (About Serpent Cults, Love Bringing Rain, Ferris Wheels and Spiritual Journeys etc) it really is manna from heaven to have those delusions come true, especially so on my birthday. Indeed at times like that its overwhelming.
I started to weigh up the situation at Preston and I realised that this Rain Bow weekend situation was a very one off event. I have many experiences of these one off types of events in my life over the last 6 or 7 years and they are always so unique that they can’t ever happen again. I started to make a list. It was my Birthday, it was a Full Crow Moon, it was a ‘Preston Guild’ Year, and it was the official start of Cultural Olympiad in the area. It goes without saying that England is the country officially hosting the Olympics in this year too. It is a Diamond Jubilee year. I thought bloody hell it is a unique time.
Oh and not to mention the symbolic places the Global Rainbow has visited before it came to Preston. It did indeed carry symbolism beyond belief, but who’s going to believe that? Plus rainbows at night are very rare and this thing was a million times brighter than any moonbow anyway.
Well I thought if I’m going to have delusions about these things then at least they might as well be unique delusions.
I suddenly realised that if my delusions really are in fact truly delusions, then it’s a good job this fluke came along to stop me waiting for an event that would have never happened. How flukey am I? Bloody hell I could have been waiting for eternity for the sort of 5 sense apparatus that has come to me since last August. Thank God for flukes eh? Maybe I’m making all this Rain and Rain Bow boring shit up eh? But why would I do that? Why would I? I realised the events are necessary hence reporting them.
If I had been waiting for this event to come and it was not a delusion, along with the Rain Bow Gate and of course my experiences in South America, then I can be honest with you and truly say I wouldn’t want to ‘wait’ for this event to come around again, no not in a million years. Mind you it would take much longer than a million years to come round again. Wouldn’t it? Could you produce that sort of collective synchronicity again inside a million years? Even if you were delusional and could fluke the appearance of Rain symbolism and five-sense Rain monuments like me? I’ll tell you now you couldn’t come near to repeating the circumstances. I believe the circumstances can never be repeated. In fact I know they won’t.
At the end of the day the Rain Bow Gate now exists. Only time and a good heart will show you why. I know events are important to my journey and I know they are important to some other peoples journeys too, but that does not mean you have to believe me. I wrote this nearly five years ago….

I told you the truth then just as I tell the truth today….

Anyway I have been as brief as I could over this announcement. Sorry if I bored you. I’ll try to get off the boring stuff soon!
