Pipe Dream #73: To Walk With Whimsy

This past summer, I sometimes found myself struck with fits of whimsy. I don’t even like Alice In Wonderland (gasp, I know), but these pictures sort of remind me of that book. They also remind me of Lord of the Rings and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.


I came across this mushroom one day when I was running. It was just so huge, bigger than any other fungus I had seen recently. And it kind of looked like…a tea saucer. So. This is what happens when I see fungus I like. I accessorize it. Kind of like the way people wear huge blingin’ pockets on ghetto booties. Big fungus, flashy crystal.  Wow. (Refer to my previous disclaimers about bad analogies.)

Anyway, I don’t know what else to say beyond that except that I hope you like these. Even if you don’t though, it’s cool. I do.

It’s a happy day,
