The Long-tailed Widowbird:

The Long-tailed Widowbird is found in Angola, Botswana, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, Lesotho, South Africa, Swaziland and Zambia. 

The first time I saw this bird was in book when I was a little girl.  We had to create a project and I instantly fell in love with this beauty.  I first witnessed it with my own eyes a little later riding in a packed minicab with my mother traveling from South Africa to Lesotho to attend a funeral in our village. One flew alongside us as though chaperoning us to the pain and heavy freedom of a family burial.  Squashed in between tired mine-workers, city dwellers going home, I fell in love. It’s my favourite bird. 

I admit I forgot it was Earth Day today until I came across Dynamic Africa's posts on my Dashboard.  Everyday is Earth Day for us Africans I believe.  Nonetheless, seeing all that natural beauty reminded me of my favourite animals, birds, insects from home.

PRO TIP: watching “how it’s made” is SUCH a good way to combat an anxiety attack! There’s soothing music, a soothing narrator who’s intonation never changes (narrators never yell or change their speaking pace), it’s engaging enough to keep you occupied but doesn’t force you to think too hard!

also sometimes the narrator makes bad puns

Witch Apprentice Eleanor is up for download! After two weeks of working on this nonstop, here’s a small little ren’py game as I try to learn the trials and tribulations (lots of those) in game making!

The game is about a small witch named Eleanor and her friends! There are four possible endings (one of which I like to consider the True Ending, but I think each has its own charm. The rating is E for Everyone! The plot is pretty superficial, but I’ve also been told it’s adorable, so there you go. 

All art was drawn by yours truly, and all the songs are by Kevin MacLeod (the royalty free music guy). 

YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THE GAME HERE!

The game is free of course, but if you liked it, consider supporting it by tipping me @paypal address will.mari.cos@hotmail.com in case you wanna help out! (paypal only tho, sorry!)
