The red-pink-ish flower that you can see to the left is actually one of the very few plants found in places near this cold
environment, even though they're usually nowhere close. Rumours say that one looking for these
might be more lucky to run across one in a place slightly south-east, where volcanoes at the
bottom of the ocean cause a temperature just nuances higher than in the surroundings, however
that doesn't really change anything to the fact that these pretty flowers are a hard and very
rare find, and it's only seldom that one of our friends here actually gets lucky enough to spot
one of these on their travels far away from home. Not only noone knows how this flower can
survive in these cold temperature, another interesting ability of this plant is that it can
retain its vitality and vibrant colours even in this sphere, nourishing on the sunlight that
falls through the glass.
Our little inhabitants of this icy environment use these little spheres with the flower in it
as a sign of appreciation, giving it to someone they consider special to show their friendship. To them, the flower significates
a sign of warmth, persistance and liveliness in this otherwise so cold climate.
The same can be applied to here. If you have a website you might notice that people stop by one
time, or even a couple of times, but that's as far as it usually goes. Even if one considers
themselves to be popular, it's often only a swarm of people around who are only superficially
interested, following one like shadows, being there when it's sunny but disappearing during
darker days. Or think of life in general, how often do you see people rushing around, maybe
superficially asking how one is doing, pretending to be listening, with no real interest
whatsoever? The people you see here are very much different: They are warm trustworthy and
caring persons, who put a lot of time and effort into their friendship, that can be relied
on - and not only do that during good times where it's easy but also during harder ones. I
usually know them for quite some time already as well, not just weeks or months, but rather
years in which I got a good grasp of their personalities and learned to appreciate them.
Nishi is one of the very first persons I met online, and we have stuck around ever since, giving us critiques on our work and helping us improve. His gallery is unique - if you like Yoshies from the Mario games, you'll surely love it, the style might me a little different from Nintendo's, however it's very close and definitely well done. The main character he has is a yellow Yoshi, however you'll also find other characters such as raccoons, or even goats among his drawings - all drawn in a cute and friendly anthro style, usually loaded with little details and full of effort.
