Koala Hugs

KoalaHug

After reading this post, Seraphim zapped over to the Something New Pose Store, where they are selling the above hug, giving 100% of the profits to the RSPCA – New South Wales Bush Fire Appeal, to help with caring for the poor little guys who have survived the horrendous fires currently raging in Australia. These fires are decimating not just the cute Koala’s, but ALL the creatures that live in those forests. Experts are saying those ecosystems may NEVER recover from this. It’s very sad.

Seraphim’s human lives in New Zealand, which is thousands of kilometres away from Australia, yet is being blanketed with smoke from those fires, two of which have now merged to create a ‘mega‘ fire*. Here’s another article about the mega fire… it also states that ‘Up to 1 billion mammals, birds and reptiles nationwide, many of them unique to Australia, may have been affected or killed by the fires…’ This is an ecological catastrophe of horrendous proportions. Trump will probably say it’s a Chinese hoax.

* ‘Two fires straddling the borders of two Australian states have merged, creating a 600,000-hectare “mega-fire” south of the Snowy Mountains.’

Lazy Day

BunBuns

Yesterday, Seraphim decided she needed new slippers. She sat at her computer, with a fresh coffee, and went to MarketPlace, and almost straight away found these gorgeous bunny slippers from [Phunk], she had them delivered via the digital magic of MP to SL, and snuggled her feet into them… they fit perfectly, and are so cute they almost made her cry. She loved them so much, she decided to stay in her jammies as she went and did some stuff, starting with a trip to the latest Swank event…

BunBuns2a

… she’s NEVER gone out into SL in her jammies, before, and can’t understand why not… she was sooo comfy, and her very low complexity certainly can’t have hurt at such a high-impact place…

BunBuns3

… then she came home and installed some new statues in her garden…

BunBuns4

… they both look fabulous there…

BunBuns5

… then she went to her friend, Princess Angelica’s new place, which she finds really lovely…

BunBuns6

… then she went and showed her bunnies, in the bunny field, her new slippers. The bunnies were initially horrified, as they thought she’d killed some of their relatives and made shoes out of them, but, once Seri explained that was not the case, they told her she looked pretty sweet in her new slippers (:

 

Good Morning, Seraphim

MorningGirl

Every morning, Seraphim awakes in her spacious bedroom. She actually doesn’t need to sleep, but, over the millennia, she’s taught herself to do so, because she dreams when she sleeps, and she loves that…

MorningGirl2a

… she springs out of bed, totally refreshed…

MorningGirl3

… and bounds into another day on Earth…

MorningGirl4

… her bedroom is decorated with some of her favourite art. After rising, on every third day, she heads for her beautiful, silver refrigerator…

MorningGirl5

… for a meal…

MorningGirl6

… she plays the same game, every third day, which is how often she needs to feed, where she says ‘Hmmm, what shall I have this morning?’… but, it’s always the same… synthetic blood, made in her secret facilities around the world, synthetic blood that fulfils all her predatory instincts, and keeps her from preying on soft humans…

MorningGirl7

… once that’s done, she heads for her lounge…

MorningGirl8

… where she is greeted by her kitty-in-a-balloon, and her constantly sleeping, though telepathically communicating, sphynx cat… these guys make her morning with their love, and she adores them. She usually gets dressed in the lounge.

Lost Unicorn

Unicorn1

Seraphim read this post, this morning, and decided to visit Lost Unicorn, somewhere she’s never been, before… she was instantly smitten with the place, and surprised she’s never heard of it, before…

Unicorn2

… the lush foliage has a predominantly green/purple palette, which is gorgeous. As someone who creates her own environments, Seraphim could see how much work has been put into sourcing the various elements of this wonderful environment…

Unicorn3

… whilst photographing the above scene, Seri posed herself, then spent a few minutes getting the camera angle just right, she was, literally, just about to click the shutter, when two huge, bare-chested SL males (the male equivalents of the ballon-breasted barbies) blundered past her, and shunted her off the path… it’s moments like that that she wishes she could just kick the shit out of other avi’s, because their incredible arrogance/sense of entitlement just disgusts her… anyway, she can’t, so she didn’t, and she had to spend a few more minutes getting the shot right…

Unicorn4

… as well as gorgeous foliage, Lost Unicorn has lovely lighting effects…

Unicorn5

… the whole place is very beautiful, and quite wonderfully fantasial…

Unicorn6

… a photographers delight. Seri could see herself dressing up and coming back here for some kind of fantasy shoot…

Unicorn7

… as well as beautiful plants and light, there is also a lot of falling water…

Unicorn8

… it’s very much the setting for Elves and Fae.

First Trips of the Year

today

Seraphim went on her first few jaunts of the year, today. First she went to Veyot’s ‘Lost Luggage and Unclaimed Freight‘ shed, in Bhaga…

today2

… this is one of Veyot’s whimsical little projects…

today3

… a small, two-room shed, beside a rail yard…

today4

… filled with disparate objects…

today5

… then she went to the gallery in Montmartre, and hung the third of her current ‘Dream’ series. After her meeting with Nicholai Laval, a few months ago, which she posted about here, Seri has barely heard from Nicholai, in fact, Nicholai ignored Seri’s last message, about a month ago. While Seri still clearly has rez rights in the gallery, the gallery remains unfurnished, contrary to Nicholai’s assertion she would furnish it, and Nicholai seems, now, totally uninterested in the whole thing. Seri has stopped telling Nicholai whenever she hangs anything new, and expects, any time, for it all to be returned to her inventory* with no explanation, and that will be the end of that odd, typically SL, collaboration with a stranger who seemed to want to be a friend.

*… and that’s exactly what happened, two days later. Seraphim wonders if SL is really filled with dysfunctional people, or if she just runs into more of them than most avi’s do?
