Dollop of capaccino ice cream and a blue alfalfa sprout …?

I’m not sure of magnification or credits, it was sitting in my Images folder. Striking.

    Striking as you wrote.
    I wonder why some are obsessed with the equality of sexes!
    Obviously they are not equal! :)

    A zygote is a gamete’s way of producing more gametes. This may be the purpose of the universe. – Robert Heinlein

    Zygotes unite! It’s the only way to survive.

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
