He had thought of finding old tattered clothes for wicks and making lamps for everyone, but then he realized that he couldn't find or make lamp-oil.He nosed around the village and found a stock of old, cracked pots that looked useless. He knew that he could give them new life, if only he could find something luminescent.Then, late one night, as Todd was out in the forest looking for truffles and other fungi to eat for a midnight-snack he smelled something new.

Todd had never heard of such a thing but he knew that he could make gifts of the mushrooms to the villagers, and keep them in the cracked pots. The next morning Todd came back with a few of the old pots and filled them with the peat from the rotted log, then carefully transplanted a tiny glowing fungus to each pot."*~~*an art challenge i completed for a group on DA.
