Yesterday was one of those days. Finishing a script, I started feeling the so well known sensation of having a hand squeezing my brain to then make it swell until pushing hard, really hard, inside my skull, outwards, as if trying to break the bone. It was 9 PM for me anyway, so I decided to do something I don't do that often, but really should: check out interesting sims to explore. And so I found this place.
In that world we call real, I love forests, rivers and mountains. I long for one of those times when I can wear my most comfortable clothes, sneakers, and walk at places where at times the Sun doesn't reach you, because the tree leaves are just so dense at that point.
I tried to post a few pictures, but the feed wasn't collaborating. Yes, it's a beautiful place to be with him, lost in his arms while the flowers tickle you and the breeze caresses your cheeks (Yes, I also realize none of that is real, but let's just continue as if it were, for a bit.)
There was more than I wanted to show, than the feed allowed for. For example, this stone lion, which looks like a proud guardian of the Quiet River (no idea if that's the actual name of the river):
I can't help giving names to... everything. Had I been Bastian in the Neverending Story, I sure could have helped too, when the Child Empress needed a new name. Some names I give may be, though, more irreverent than others... But... Back to The Guardian of the Quiet River... :-)
I wanted a closer shot with it, staring at the waters, and I couldn't help remembering, "when you gaze long into an abyss":
My favorite shot from yesterday is this one:

It brings back so many memories... Memories of my favorite forest in Earth, a place I hope I'll see again, some time. In the meantime, I enjoy what virtual nature can do for my mind.
Have a great day :-)
