365 Days, Day 358

'It's very provoking,' Humpty Dumpty said after a long silence, looking away from Alice as he spoke, 'to be called an egg - very!'

'I said you looked like an egg, Sir,' Alice gently explained.

(Lewis Carroll)

An unhatched egg is to me the greatest challenge in life (E. B. White)

The image of an egg is loaded with symbolism. New beginnings, life, fertility… omelette… My train of thought took a slightly different path there for a moment, as my brain tends to do.

Soufflé: I remember making lemon soufflé with mom at home. Warm lemony syrupy goo.

Omelette: I have never made one. Tom makes the most delicious light omelettes.

That’s all I have to say right now. Am feeling quiet because I have rather a lot to do today.
