Well ,

Its an odd way snails communicate . they have highly developed eyes, no evolutionary accident , been around since the dawn.

But even then , they need to speak and wonder what's going on !

if on high you place a snail,
the chances are that it will fail,
because at source they're rather frail,
and that Dave is the holy grail

I don't do poetry .... the scientist in me constrains.

But you could take away the snails and the ladders and the cracked earth and I'd happily look at that magnificent sky all evening long.

Thank god for visionaries such as yourself Dave or else EPZ would be a dull and lifeless place ..... snail-scapes could be the new EPZ bandwagon.

Hopefully ..........

Wonderful, an other fantastic image. So much energy in the background of the image. I can see it so well. Dreams and meditation makes things very clear.

It's good to see the much underated snail given prominence in such a stunning way. They know things, you know - deep primordial things - well that's what they told me anyway.

2nd image may well be how their spirits look . . . I believe they are descended from visitors.
