Alice came to a fork in the road. "Which road do I take?" she asked."Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat."I don't know," Alice answered."Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."
"So long as I get somewhere," Alice added as an explanation. "Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."
"All right," said the Cat; and this time it vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end of the tail, and ending with the grin, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone. "Well! I've often seen a cat without a grin," thought Alice; "but a grin without a cat! It's the most curious thing I ever saw in my life!"

I am diagonally parked in a parallel universe. Like Arthur Dent from "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy", if you do not have a Babel Fish in your ear this blog will be completely unintelligible to you and will read something like this: "boggle, google, snoggle, slurp, slurp, dingleberry to the power of 10". Fortunately, those who have had the Babel Fish inserted in their ear, will understood this blog perfectly. If you are familiar with this technology, you will know that the Babel Fish lives on brainwave radiation. It excretes energy in the form of exactly the correct brainwaves needed by its host to understand what was just said; or in this case, what was read. The Babel Fish, thanks to scientific research, reverses the problem defined by its namesake in the Tower of Babel, where a deity was supposedly inspired to confuse the human race by making them unable to understand each other.

IF A HEN IS ONLY AN EGG'S WAY OF MAKING ANOTHER EGG, WHO OR WHAT LAID THE THUNDER EGG?
'A frond of fern full green and grown,
the strength of stars blink in stone,
from thunder egg comes tension stilled,
and the fern of peace grows good-willed'
This computer generated collage was made using a photograph of a palm leaf from my garden and with thunder eggs which I dug out from Mt Hay over 30 years ago. The poem which accompanies it was written by a friend.
A native american legend tells that thunder eggs were hurled from the volcano crater by the thunder Gods when the spirits of the mountains were angry. The thunder spirits who lived in the volcano craters, hurled the nodules, accompanied by thunder and lightning, hence the term "thunder egg".
Thunder eggs are geodes which is derived from the greek and means 'earthlike'. An anthropomorphic belief is that thunder eggs stimulate independent thinking and freedom of spirit.
