I was excited when we found these hairy little goblets, because they were long on my private list of
things I wanted to find. They're cup fungi that are less than a half inch tall—they make up for their
short stature with their luminosity. If you keep such a list in your head and occasionally fulfill a wish,
you know the kind of joy I'm talking about. Like finding your wedding ring on the windowsill after a
week of being sure your son had flushed it down the toilet.
