Despite it being windy and rainy,
it was a good day for seeing the raptors.
I think the wind stirred their spirits a bit.
This batch of photos includes:
the Boobook owl, the Powerful Owl, the Tawny Frogmouth, the Brahminy Kite and the Wedge-Tailed Eagle (which it's still legal to hunt in most states, making it the most persecuted / killed eagle in the world)

Eagle's Heritage is Australia's largest raptor rehabilitation centre.
About an eighth of it is accessible to the public.
The rest is private.
Where possible birds are rehabilitated into the wild.
This section focuses on Ivy the Barn Owl
and the Black Kite (which is not black, but brown).

Due to fairly dismal weather
(yay dismal weather!)
we saw no fairy wrens on this holiday.
But we still got to see some very pretty birds
and one very bond New Holland Honeyeater,
while at The Berry Farm.


Friend!

[Photos] 2017 - Prevelly

We watched the sunset at Prevelly,
on the first night.
We worried the sunset would be pretty boring actually,
but high haze due to smoke burn-off gave it all
a kind of post-apocalyptic feel.
Which was awesome.

I contacted the Foreign Students' Affairs office (or wev their exact title is; they coordinate and support incoming exchange students) at the local college, and said hey - I speak Japanese and am happy to help people get on their feet in $myLittleTown, or practice English, or just speak Japanese with someone who will mostly understand it, or make a local friend.

I got two emails from students and replied to them. AAAAAAAH.

Werewolf: the Reimagining

The old World of Darkness (and new Chronicles of Darkness) books often completely reinvented the mythical creatures you played as, and then smugly asserted that the folklore got it all wrong. So I was thinking, what if the folklore was the "secret truth" and the WoD/CoD versions were the folklore / pop culture understanding? What if ...

  • Werewolves show up in action movies as noble beasts who fight pollution on behalf of Gaia, but are actually monsters that humans turn into endangered animals who avoid humans whenever possible?

  • Kitsune are portrayed in dark urban fantasy as arrogant princelings, who serve their stern lord Inari and endanger the humans they romance. But She is actually a harmless rice goddess, and foxes who take human form place themselves in mortal danger by doing so, much like transgender humans?

  • Vampires are depicted in pop culture as rich bloodsucking seducers, who tempt mortals into a life of eternal debauchery. But what if they actually are exactly like that sparkle in sunlight?

Maybe not that last one ~
