"I remember it well . The earthboy was laying by the tree trunks that formed a natural barrier around the settlement. Hidden from the limited vision of the planets, we felt quite secure and continued to perform the mission we came here for. When the small one looked at us, it was not with the eyes of curiosity or fear but rather with the calmness of understanding and acceptance. He smiled and we smiled back. In a world of mediocrity and ignorance he was an exception, a sign that that maybe this world was in for something good."
"We were on patrol gathering samples of what we thought were lower life forms for possible sustenance value. The earthboy was lagging behind picking up and tasting different objects. Suddenly a live animal raced by. In a flash the earthboy grabbed it and lifted it to his mouth.The animal let out a loud ,piercing scream. The earthboy was stunned and just looked at the animal. The animal again screamed but this time in a lower, more harmonic tone. It stopped and looked at the earthboy. Again the scream- less harsh than before, almost songlike.The earthboy looked at the animal and made a sound almost identical to what he just heard. The animal repeated it. The earthboy responded. Soon both were in unison , the sound becoming more beautiful and resonate with every note. The earthboy loosened his grip and ever so gently placed the animal back on the ground. He then smiled. The animal kept singing as it disappeared into the undergrowth, his song faint as mist disappearing with him till the stillness of the forest obscured their presence. The earthboy began to sing his newly learned song on the way back to the settlement. What one discovers is often not what one is seeking."
