Leseprobe Thunderhead How fortunate am I among the sentient to know my purpose. I serve humankind. I am the child who has become the parent. The creation that aspires toward creator. They have given me the designation of Thunderhead—a name that is, in some ways, appropriate, because I am “the cloud,” evolved into something far more dense and complex.
