One of my main obsessions in life is the amateur study of fungi. I just love them all. I was so thrilled one year when one of the most feared of all mushrooms, The Destroying Angel, popped up under my deck, I would go and look at it often, noticing how certain other organisms seemed to like it too, like a black widow spider that had taken up residence on it! It is all such a mystery, especially when you know that almost every square inch of this Earth is threaded with fungal networks called mycelia; a nervous system or natural internet that is sentient. I could wax lyrical on this subject for hours. Below is a Ted Talk by a real expert mycologist.... all very exciting, to me anyway.
