Secrets and Rewards

Updated: Mar 24, 2021

I turned on my TV this morning, hoping that some random Olympic event was being broadcast. (The luge is my favorite winter sport, followed by ski jump, possibly because both of them are outright terrifying but at least it's not me doing it.) There were no Olympics; instead, I had accidentally tuned into Journey with Dylan Dreyer

I came in just in time to see these really beautiful trees that had what looked like puffs of steam coming off them. Ms. Dreyer was in the midst of explaining that these trees had been growing and staying alive for perhaps millennia, unregarded by humans as far as we know, and that there is no record of humans ever witnessing the spore release before (that was what the steam puffs were). Indeed, she added, "We don't even know if this happens every year."
