After further investigation it looks like it has rotted all the way down into the corm. I cut it down even further (about 1") and can see black down in the corm which Ive read means its rotting and to try and get all of the black out. Is this the proper thing to do?
With my feet upon the ground I lose myself
between the sounds and open wide to suck it in.
I feel it move across my skin.
I'm reaching up and reaching out.
I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me.
And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been.
We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been.
Spiral out. Keep going...
