Mystic Blue Twilight (2010 1LT RS IBM)

What do Van Morrison, dexter Freebish and DH Lawrence have in common?
The answer is - my car! LOL

I know most figured out it had something to do with her, but here is how they are connected.

From the moment I saw her online the word Mystic came into mind. Could just be that I have listened to one of my all time favorites songs - Van Morrisons Into the Mystic - alot lately..
"Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic"
But Mystic just seemed too short a name for such an amazing machine.

So then the name Mystic Blue started filling my head. I liked it, but it was still missing something.

And then another of my all time favorite songs - Dexter Freebish's Twilight - came in my head.
"She wants to fly, She wants to roam, She floats into my soul"
"When I crossed the line and I tripped into divine"
And so she her full name was christened- Mystic Blue Twilight - Just Mystic for short (yes, custom plates have been ordered).

And so how does DH Lawrence fit into this? Well, I went looking up the name Mystic Blue to see if/where it was already in use (and it is -all over LOL) and came across a D.H. Lawrence poem from 1916 called the Mystic Blue. I read it over and it almost could have been written about a car LOL. Granted I didn't find the poem until after I had named her - but I still liked how it fit and so I'm claiming it for her
"OUT of the darkness, fretted sometimes in its sleeping,
Jets of sparks in fountains of blue come leaping
To sight, revealing a secret, numberless secrets keeping. "
So that is how she became known as Mystic Blue Twilight....

Into The Mystic
Van Morrison

We were born before the wind
Also younger than the sun
Ere the bonnie boat was won as we sailed into the mystic

Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic

And when that fog horn blows I will be coming home
And when the fog horn blows I want to hear it
I don't have to fear it

And I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
And magnificently we will flow into the mystic

When that fog horn blows you know I will be coming home
And when that fog horn whistle blows I got to hear it
I don't have to fear it

And I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
And together we will flow into the mystic

Come on girl...

Too late to stop now...

--------------------------------------------------------------------
Dexter Freebish
Twilight

She's got eyes like deep blue skies
Reminds me of the times I've gone inside her mind
When I crossed the line and I tripped into divine

When she looks at you she'll take you to
That hidden place that you once knew
Inside of you, inside of you, inside of you

When the stars align
And the east meets the west
When the new moon rises
And we're put to the test

When we come to the crossroads and you know we'll find a way
Yeah, a new day will begin

We could drift away through the atmosphere
Gonna close our eyes and disappear
Lose ourselves like a rocket man

Take a trip to Neverland
This time, we'll get it right
We'll be together when the sun goes down at twilight

At twilight
Twilight

She's my private paradise
When I'm with her I'm paralyzed
I cannot speak, I cannot see
She's my eternity

She's not afraid to be alone
The universe she calls her home
She wants to fly
She wants to roam
She floats into my soul

When the stars align
And the east meets the west
When the new moon rises
And we're put to the test

When we come to the crossroads and you know we'll find a way
Yeah, a new day will begin
We could drift away through the atmosphere

Gonna close our eyes and disappear
Lose ourselves like a rocket man
Take a trip to Neverland
This time, we'll get it right

I know we'll be together when the sun goes down at twilight
At twilight
Twilight

--------------------------------------------------------------------
The Mystic Blue
D.H. Lawrence (1885–1930). Amores. 1916.
OUT of the darkness, fretted sometimes in its sleeping,
Jets of sparks in fountains of blue come leaping
To sight, revealing a secret, numberless secrets keeping.

Sometimes the darkness trapped within a wheel
Runs into speed like a dream, the blue of the steel
Showing the rocking darkness now a-reel.

And out of the invisible, streams of bright blue drops
Rain from the showery heavens, and bright blue crops
Surge from the under-dark to their ladder-tops.

And all the manifold blue and joyous eyes,
The rainbow arching over in the skies,
New sparks of wonder opening in surprise.

All these pure things come foam and spray of the sea
Of Darkness abundant, which shaken mysteriously,
Breaks into dazzle of living, as dolphins that leap from the sea
Of midnight shake it to fire, so the secret of death we see.
THE END

Mystic is 3 weeks old today! She and I have traveled 1000 miles, she taken 3 baths, been on display twice, gone on a hill country club drive, been ogled and drooled over many times, and has turned heads, garned waves and thubs up too many times to count! And to answer my husbands question - NO the new has not worn off yet!
