Friday Vocabulary - Vermiculate

In the last Friday Vocabulary I did, I had a quote from The Pilgrim's Regress and I defined a word that was in it. Well, there's another word in the same quote that I want to define this time. The word is vermiculate. I'm not going to repost the whole quote, just the part with the word in it so you will have some context.
The Landlord does not make the blackness. The blackness is there already wherever the taste of mountain-apple has created the vermiculate will.

So what does vermiculate mean? Vermiculate basically means wormy So what the guide is saying is that
the blackness is wherever the taste of mountain-apple has created a wormy will
There are other meanings for vermiculate like being wormlike in shape or appearance, having wavy or winding markings like worms or worm tracks, and moving like a worm.
That's all for now.

Hey there! This is Brittany (the author of Sam, who currently has no chapters posted :-P), and I noticed your comment at the Romany Epistles site. Thank you, guys! I'm glad you're enjoying them. :-)

By the way, am I commenting to one sister or to both? If you guys share the same site, I think that is really sweet. A site shared by two sisters. How fun!

Grrr... You got me. I'm afraid I must admit that I didn't know what vermiculate meant. :) Ah well, new things learned every day! :)

Glad to see you're back up and running!

Hmm... Now there is a word that you don't hear every day. :) I am going to have to come up with a way to use it. :) By the way, this is Rachel Rossano from the Romany Epistles site. I am the author of Wren. Thank you both for the encouragement. :)
