Teledahn Dreamin'

I had to write another journal entry for my Lighting Design class, so I chose Teledahn as my subject. I haven't gotten any negative feedback or strange looks from my professor, so I guess she has no problem with the occasional "odd" entry.

Journal Entry #6
Date: Monday, October 23, 2006
Time: 11:45pm EDT – 9:45pm Cavern Time (aka Mountain Time)
Location: The Age of Teledahn
Weather: Warm, muggy

I'm sitting on the other end of what I can traverse in Teledahn. The Age is a swamp, with giant mushrooms and rusty machinery poking out of the murk. The machinery was used by the D'ni originally to harvest a type of bread that was made out of the mushrooms. This “resource” Age housed more than the resource of food, but I will not go into that dark truth here.

The mushrooms shed many spores which are hell on my sinuses, but here at the ocean, its' not so bad. It's a shame that my allergies don't permit me to stay in Teledahn for long periods of time, for the Age's environment itself is lovely, even if its secrets are far less pleasant. The metal walkway here is a great place to view Teledahn's main wonder: the sun races across the sky like a chariot at full tilt! In the time it took me to write this entry so far, it has made three full rotations. It still amazes me that five minutes equals close to three days here! My long shadow constantly spins at my feet. In daytime the sky is sickly yellow, but at night it is a lovely deep blue, with the stars shining through the constant thin cloud cover as if they were faint glitter. And when I operate the small machine that releases a quick shower of spores into the water, occasionally “Shroomie” appears, Teledahn's version of the Loch Ness Monster. She's real, but unfortunately, the spore fish food won't coax her out tonight.
