Gemini 29. A biologist doing intensive research on mold.
TITLE: LISTENING TO WHAT THE DARKNESS HAS TO SAY
Myriad beyond counting are the nations of mold through which the biologist wanders. To heal, to digest, to quietly destroy is their love. He attempts to speak to them, and some whisper to him precious secrets pertaining to their uses. Others speak in strange tongues he cannot understand, and still others are so lost in silence they are as if asleep and cannot speak at all.
And within their realms he also discovers kingdoms of poison, each with its own breed of attendant fears, its own army of clouds and nightmares.
Tiring of his work the biologist goes in search of sunlight.
