all your dreams are waking up...

L and Chow were transported to a different world this morning, a world filled with all types of animas, some long extinct, some native to beautiful Australia. They were surrounded by rocks and halls of butterflies, rooms packed full of old relics and reptiles.

As they wandered the museum they couldn’t help but touch everything that was forbidden and gasp at unthought-of wonders. They began their journey in an eerie antechamber filled with taxidermy. Stuffed animals from around the globe, they saw tigers and bison and anteaters and feral cats, they marvelled at zebras and monkeys and tree squirrels, at all kinds of birds and even they spied a sloth.

After the animals they found themselves surrounded by butterflies, butterflies all the colours of the rainbow and more, some as big as their head, some with eyes on their wings. The stared hypnotised by the vibrant hues for much longer than intended. Captivated. Trapped.
