Opening today, Friday, June 28, at 1:30 pm slt, is a new installation at Mysterious Wave entitled Childhood. Built by Cherry Manga, with terraforming by Anley Piers and sounds by Morlita Quan, Childhood invites us to see the world the eyes of children again with a sort of wistful innocence.
We encounter children of all sizes doing things that kids do: blowing bubbles, flying a kite, eating candy, playing patty-cake, splashing in a kiddie pool. And everywhere are things we remember from when we were little: alphabet blocks (be sure to click on those, as well as other things!), rainbows, a merry-go-round, pinwheels, hopscotch, a toy airplane circling overhead, stars, paper boats—and even those things that cast a damper on everything—clouds and rain, with attendant umbrellas.
Childhood has been beautifully created, from its layout to its textures. If you're not using a viewer that accepts region environment settings you might miss some of the ambience, as the sim uses its own non-standard water and sky settings, so try to switch to something similar to what you see here. Cherry Manga's shop is overhead, with a teleport link at the landing point, and you can find lots of her work for sale there. If you enjoy Mysterious Wave, please consider leaving a contribution to support the sim at the landing point.
