Every so often, I experience a sensation of restlessness and an urge to fidget, particularly when I am contemplating my origins as a child from my source material. This feeling often arises when I encounter references to Five Nights at Freddy's, leading me to imagine myself as a young girl with long, flaxen hair in a liminal space at Fazbear Pizza's, alone at night, interacting with the animatronics. These episodes occur unexpectedly, not only triggered by FNAF but also by other interests like Pokémon and video games, during which I recognize a shift in my identity to embody Rachel and adopt her voice.
I yearn for the tangible companionship of Zack, reminiscing fondly about our adventures, evading authorities, and transforming the world into our playground. I also miss Daniel Dickens and Abraham Gray, with whom I shared a profound connection, as well as my parents from that existence, despite their destructive nature. It feels as though I was forcibly separated from that life by natural circumstances, and I sometimes fret over the possibility of a similar fate in my current life. Nonetheless, I endeavor not to dwell excessively on these concerns. I pray to Zack that when my time in this world concludes, everything will be well as I seamlessly transition into an ethereal state, reuniting with those I cherish.

Ibisy szkarłatne wybrały wysokie gałęzie, podczas gdy latem widywałem je na ziemi. Jest też nowy wybieg lisów polarnych. No i oczywiście urocze lisy srebrne.
Inne #zwierzęta, których nie ująłem na zdjęciach, a widziałem: świnki zwisłobrzuche, lemury katta, króliki, kozy, małpy, żółwie, alpaki, kuce i szkockie bydło górskie.
Scarlet ibises seem to frequent high branches, while in the summer I've seen them mostly on the ground. There is a new enclosure of arctic fixes, too. Of course, there are also our cute silver foxes.
Other animals that are not on the photos but I've noticed are pot belly pigs, ring-tailed lemurs, rabbits, goats, monkeys, turtles and tortoises, alpacas, ponies and highland cattle.
Cobra-headed Meretseger protected the Valley of the Kings & Wadjet protected both #kings & childbirth.
In Lower Egypt, the cobra topped crowns.
In 2011, The Bronx #Zoo had to inform the public that an Egyptian Cobra escaped its enclosure.
It was found 5 days later hiding & named Mia - “missing in action”.

Newspaper editor T.R. Connery could have asked his reporter to write a scathing report on the sorry state of New York’s Central Park Zoo.
‘The cages are flimsy and there is a danger that a vicious animal might escape,’ he could have said.
Connery passed by the Zoo daily and once saw a leopard break free from his handler in a brief, but terrifying moment.
