Just as the story was getting interesting, I heard a noise in the garden…

I actually had some ideas for blog posts this week, but I see that Strawberry Singh’s Monday Meme is about books. I love my books, and it’s absolutely impossible to resist chattering about them! It would be the same if she asked us to talk about our favorite music, I’d just bounce around happily then ramble for pages and pages. 😀

Onward to the Book Meme! Continue reading »

Sometimes hope comes from the small, silly moments

This week the Monday Meme from Strawberry Singh was provided by her friend Winter Jefferson, and it’s relevant to me on a lot of levels.  Strawberry is dealing with the end of a RL relationship that has left her heartbroken, and while it’s not quite the same as the loss I’ve been working through there are parallels, and I certainly feel for her. The meme this week asks us about what gives us hope, and asks us:

Take a few moments on your blogs or chosen social media to tell us about a time you faced your own personal nadir. When were you at your lowest point?

Dragon Curves is a new fractal art exhibit by Mac Kanashimi, now open at LEA26, I learned about this via Ziki Questi’s blog a couple of days ago and have been looking forward to visiting. 🙂

You’ll arrive at the top level, and can grab a notecard at your landing point that will give you a bit of information about the build itself, as well as links to read more about dragon curves and about the artist.  This is a huge build and they recommend that you set your draw distance to at least 384 to see more, though I was feeling brave and turned mine up to maximum so I could cam out and get a good look at everything.

There are three levels, connected by a dragon curve stairway. It’s possible to walk from the top to the bottom, although I wasn’t coordinated enough to get far before I fell off one of the platforms. I didn’t mind hovering off to the side, this build is constantly in motion and I enjoyed watching the objects change height and color.

Dragon Curves will remain open through June 30.
