Fallen Stars


So Alice should have arrived on weekdays; all mushrooms in the jungle are now a simple ordinary mushroom, as simple as everyone of us.

A slime mold whatsapped me then, following by one that was air-cushioning atop a bracket mushroom. Is disguising as a mushroom a trend now, though they are also called moon poo, star jelly or star shot?


They should be prouder to be themselves. Google rang me that Fate magazine described them to be of extraterrestrial origin which float through space!

"As he whose quicker eye doth trace, A false star shot to a mark'd place, Do's run apace, And, thinking it to catch, A jelly up do snatch." - 1641, Sir John Suckling.

Interesting, very interesting! How could Alice miss this part of the Wonderland?

You know Alice. She is probably busy confusing us here in the real world. I am sure she will be back in time to see the newest sights of Wonderland.

Maybe Fate magazine can confirm that all mushrooms are really extraterrestrial life forms that are just visiting our planet to observe humanity's progress.

ExtraTerrestrials have invaded. I must go see if I can locate some of them. Like you and Alice, I come as a friend.
